Do you think there are any religious people out there who could cope with me playing this clip to illustrate my views towards God and religion? i.e. Would they be able to keep the same level of friendship/love/respect for me after watching it?

The problem of that kind of pain and suffering in the world has been a recurrent theme/problem for Christianity for some time. It is also one of my main issues with the “good god” idea as well. It’s a serious issues that the good god theists have to deal with and respond to.

The majority of them, of course, will hate this. But some might be forced to at least question their blind acceptance of God's so-called goodness. Then there are those that are secretly struggling and tired of trying to make sense of the contradictions. It was an article similar to this reasoning, that helped me to admit that I was an atheist. Stephen's answer here is dead on.

I wouldn't want to be seen to be attempting to challenge/change their faith. I would feel like a hypocrite. I would like them to have/consider acceptance that this is my point of view, I'm entitled to it as a fundamental human right and it shouldn't have a detrimental effect on our relationship - i.e. ask themselves "Am I practising what I preach, believe and/or have learnt".


I have extensive family who are conservative and I have found them to be resistant to anyone challenging their religious idealogy.

Never try to reason the prejudice out of a man. It was not reasoned into him, and cannot be reasoned out. - Sydney Smith (1771 – 1845)

This is one of my favorites quotes !!!


Brilliant! The man makes sense, and that's something that religious people cannot tolerate. It would be a very rare find to find a religious person that would not be willing to make your feelings an issue. I love this particular clip because it illustrates how God is only responsible for the wonderful good things in life but who takes responsibility for the plethora of horrible things that plague humans?

Not just humans. Every living organism on this planet and beyond...

I think all people of religion would take offence, in different amounts, at the way it challenges their belief and faith. However, would any of them think I meant no offence to them - I am simply using it as an aid to express my own personal view of religion?
