To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” -Genesis 3:16
Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says.-1 Corinthians 14:34A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. -1 Timothy 2:11
When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.  (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear.  Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.  (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

    Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed.  If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful.  You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts.  Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.  (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

eighthdeadlysin asked:

I posted the ever famous Epicurus quote on my facebook. One my..misguided friends responded with: "Are teachers able to answer problems? Yes they gave them to you.If they are willing but won't give you the answers, does that make them douchebags? No they do it so you think for yourself and stop whining like a bitch." How would you respond to that? Sadly, I'm really bad at rebuttals...

Such a teacher would be a douchebag if the handing out of problems was not preceded by a discussion on how to solve them. Isn’t that obvious? Such an individual would be anything but a teacher, maybe a bad teacher at most.

In the same manner a god that is unable or unwilling, if such a thing existed, would be total douche him/her/itself. Such a being would be anything but a god, maybe an evil god at most.

At the end of the day how can a deity that does nothing be something? To think for oneself is to accept reality as is first. No whining like a bitch in defense of a deity that cannot defend itself, mainly due to a total lack of existence.

This newspaper refuses to publish pictures of women, so it photoshopped Hillary Clinton and another woman out of a picture of the now-iconic Bin Laden raid Situation Room photo. This newspaper is literally erasing women from important historical moments.

A response to this posting by Rabbi Adam Jacobs:

"My dear Rabbi Jacobs,

If your goal is to try to “walk back” some of the clamorous dialogue and understand each other better, perhaps you shouldn’t start by presuming to define atheism on your terms and proceding to tell us that we’re not really atheists.

Beating on the straw man of absolute certainty immediately discredits your commentary.

Perhaps you shouldn’t claim to already understand our perspective while demonstrating, at every turn, that you most certainly do not (and claiming to be seeking this understanding).

If you really wanted to understand our position, you wouldn’t claim to already understand it, you wouldn’t write such a transparently concern-troll-like sermon, you’d actually engage in conversation instead of, ironically, engaging in the very sort of dialogue you claim to be trying to avoid.”

The impossibility of God

People tell me that I cannot even begin to attempt to understand God, for He is a concept too large for us to grasp.But from what I’ve heard, there are a few rules about Jehovah/Yahweh/God that most theists seem to agree on:

  1. God is the omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient creator of everything. He knows everything, has the power to do anything, and is the point of origin for everything that has ever happened in this universe.
  2. God is Perfect. He makes no mistakes, His creations are perfect, and everything that happens is part of His perfect plan.
  3. God loves everything He creates. He loves the planet Earth, he loves all its inhabitants, and He loves YOU. As a result of this love, He also gives his creations free will.

With these three rules in mind, it would be very assuring to believe in God (I mean, you have an all-powerful Father than loves you, has your back, and plans for every event in your life from birth til death).

Is anybody else beginning to see the contradictions here? If such a being is truly Perfect, why is his creation so imperfect? If God spawned everything that ever existed, and He exists, what spawned Him? How can God have emotions, such as jealousy and anger, when He is omniscient? How can we have free will if He already has the past, present, and future planned out? Why does He create atheists if He wants humans to believe in him? Why didn’t God preserve His Holy Word the Bible over the centuries? There are a thousand questions one could ask. All of them imply that God doesn’t exist, or that God doesn’t really hold the above properties.

Reblog this, and add something that doesn’t make sense to you. I kind of want to see what other issues people see with the existence of this all-loving all-powerful all-knowing Creator.
