I guess the giver of gifts fucked you. Sorry.

Well at least I can think for myself. That's something.
Christian apologetics is the art of rolling a dog turd in sugar and selling it as a donut.

Yep, turn to your imaginary friend to feel special in your tiny little deluded bubble.
Can't quite let go of that old blanky can you.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence - Carl Sagan

Mankind's intelligence walks hand in hand with it's stupidity.

Being an atheist says nothing about your overall intelligence, it just means you don't believe in god. Atheists can be as bright as any scientist and as stupid as any creationist.

You never really know just how stupid someone is, until you've argued with them.

Ok, how about I give you a great gift of a million dollars. You just have to work off your ass your whole life to get it. That's basically what you're saying when you suggest your god gives people gifts. If the people still have to work toward them (in the same way as they would have had to if there were no gods at all) then what the hell is the point of the 'gift' in the first place?

You know, when people tell me the skills I have today are because god gave them to me that makes me angry. How dare they diminish the effort I put into them by suggesting it was merely the result of luck or favour of a deity. When others were electing to go out getting drunk or watching tv I was working at my various hobbies to try and better myself. I'm not a great virtuoso, but this is no one's fault but my own. People need to grow the fuck up and take ownership of their successes and failures because that's the only way we're going to make any progress.

The point is to create a guilt feeling that can be exploited for moral, sexual, and financial control.

God "Surprise!!! I've given you a great Gift!"

Guy, " you've taken away my arms"

God " Aren't I wonderful?"

Guy "Gee, thanksAngry"
