On the contrary. If there is a God, according to the bible he is on our side - literally. He might be standing side by side with an atheist or a christian but he is there. Reaching out to each individual.

How do I know? I don't. What I do know is the evidence of my Christian friends' lives. They lead happier and more fulfilled lives, suffused with meaning and when bad things happen they deal with them better.

I know someone will respond "I'm alright, I'm fine without God". But are you really? Or are you pushing something down, pushing something away?

If there is a God - then this song is so wrong and is written by someone who is deeply wounded. God is on your side. Try him - you might not be able to scientifically explain it but you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Jennifer, just as many people turn TO faith because they are wounded.

When people hurt and confused, they don't always think clearly and may seriously entertain beliefs that would sound crazy at any other time.

Atheists who LOSE their faith usually turn back to it after the crisis is over. Those who GIVE IT UP as an absurd exercise in self-deception rarely go back. They usually feel RELIEVED, as if faith was an onerous burden.

And it is! Religious faith is like a child, needing constant reassurance. Only dogmatic beliefs need this; those based on facts stand on their own merits. They explain, rather than NEEDING an explanation.

There's a good reason you don't hear congregations of biologists shouting out affirmations of evolution. Beliefs that exist for a GOOD reason don't need that.

Clap, clap, clap...Good was never on our side because he just not exist.

I´m also a mexican and found your blog, looking for some humorous images to include on one of my blogs about fibromialgy (is in spanish)... I recently heard that I got that syndrom because I was so far from God(!!!)

Well, hehehe, as a proof of "his" existence is not very good isn´t it? Hahahaha

Anyway, congratulations and I became one of your followers..despite my very rusty english
Regards

Is it strange to believe in evolution and believe in a higher-power? Is it odd to not believe the Bible is true from verse to verse, but see in it men trying to form a pattern so the mind can understand something it's limits will not allow, but they sense all around them? Is it illogical to see all of Existence as greater than myself, alive and aware? Is it foolish to believe that I am accountable for my actions to the future? Or that it's a small miracle that the atomic structure of all things is too chaotic to produce such a grand symphony as this vast Universe, and yet it is playing along so beautifully? As blind faith is no crown to the intellect, baseless, crass cynicism, and crude mockery of sincere human yearning is also no compliment to the critically thinking mind. It may be true that 'God' is not on any particular person's/group's side, but, it may be true that our existence indicates something is helping us all. Closed minds are stagnant minds:) The energy you invest in closing your mind to keep your dogma unchallenged, is inversely proportionate to the actual trust you have in that dogma. So much happier is the mind that can thrive on the richness of faith and science.

Just as the gods used WWII to justify an influx of new technologies so will they use the impending pestilence which kills over half the world's population to justify historical medical advances, including the "cure of aging", initiating the "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
We've seen this tactic used recently with AIDS, targetted at homosexuals and blacks in Africa.
Then, as promised, The End will come with fire::::Global tectonic subduction.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

Don't forget the lessons the 'ole white preacher taught:::Dancing is a sin, spare the rod spoil the child.
The gods used the liberal tool to ridicule away so many taboos, paving the way for the decay of society and ultimately the End Times::::::
Black behavior was controlled by the KKK. Men's behavior was controlled by marriage for thousands of years.
When married by 15 men never gained the taste of promiscuity. Once the gods used the budding liberalism tool the men set the tone for the deteriorating enviornment centered around their gross disfavor.
Women's relinquishing control of pre-arranged marriage will be what costs mankind everything in The End. It's all their fault. Men are pigs, essentially just primally responsive disfavored beings who if given the freedom will abuse based on the impulses the god's push them into. Whereas under pre-arranged marriage this behavior was contained now the promiscuous fraternity house epitomizes the pinnicle of what a "real man" should be like. And sadly the women fall into line.

We all need to stop believing the lie. Contrary to belief participating won't buy us anything.
The voices in ALL our heads IS god, the technology they invented and use to control the universe and everyone in it.
Until we stop participating in the lie they will have control over us. The truth is only children go to heaven. It is very noticable; You will know your child is on a spiritual journey. And when people fail we all have to die and be reincarnated::::We're all coming back.

Compelling people to believe "the lie" allows the gods to get away with behavior like the Conneticut shool shooting with no reprocussions. So many people with gross disfavor, like men, believe "the lie" is evil, and by being evil in their lives they are "earning" their way into heaven.
Understanding the rejecting "the lie" would result in vulnerability and fear, thinking the right way important for a legitimate chance to ascend in a future life.
Note the gods created elements which progressively tried to defeat this fear:::Xtian god, USA, democracy, union membership, affluence, stability.
I shared the importance of thinking the right way. Understanding the gods did this can assist in this capacity.

god was never on your side.
