No, lots of people are inspired to do good by God.

Which god? zeus, thor, odin, ra, quetzalcoatl, yahweh, or jehovah, so many to pick from and not a scrap of evidence for any!
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!

An individual who does good for the sake of doing good is more reasonable than someone who can only seem to do good with a belief in god.

Why? What's reasonable about doing good for the sake of doing good?

Because it is demonstrable that doing good is rational, and has outcomes that can rationally be proven to improve societies.


Let's put it this way.

2 families separately take their 8 year old sons to a nice restaurant.

Both sons act up and disturb other diners.

The parents of one of the 8 year olds threaten their son with punishment if he doesn't behave, and promise to reward him if he behaves.

The parents of the other 8 yo explain to their son, that his behavior is disturbing the other diners, and ask him how he would feel if people disturbed him, by acting like he was acting, while he was trying to watch a movie or playing video games.

Now, imagine that these boys were taken out by a friend's parents, which boy would most likely behave? The one that no longer has the punishment/reward incentive because his parents aren't there? Or the one that understand his poor behavior effects other people, in the same way other's poor behavior would effect him?

You'd believe if you just opened your heart" is a terrible argument for religion. It's basically saying, "If you bias yourself enough, you can convince yourself that this is true." If religion were true, people wouldn't need faith to believe it -- it would be supported by good evidence.

I believed in you.

It's hard to even fathom which parts to believe.

Wrong once again son.  Banging Head On Desk

1) There is no evidence that God did write or inspired someone to write the Bible.
It could well be written by someone who had an hallucination while lost in the desert.

2) Even if God inspired someone to write the Bible the one who wrote it could have misunderstood
God message.

3) The Bible has been written and rewritten countless of time during the last few thousand years so it is obvious that those who rewritten it they did so taking in consideration their own agenda or interest.

There is two things that God can not do Ig.
One is that he can not hate anyone so the hell is off the list.
From here is clear that a lot of things written in the Bible are the fruit of sick minds not from God.

To conclude Ig let me say that you are a total fool.
If you ever would go to give evidence somewhere without having solid evidence you would be taken for a total fool and fool you are.  Smile

for some

Quote:I believed in you.
This may lead you to a minimal salvation.

Believe all of it. if you belief in some of it is wrong, He will forgive you for that misbelief or He will have it changed.

Quote:You've given me a million reasons to walk away,
ditto

Quote:but I only need one good one to stay!
He will be here even if your not.

Quote:And I couldn't think of one!
That's ok, because He has His reason for staying.

Quote:Fuck You and your deluded army of messengers

Examples?

Speaking about yourself in 3rd person now eh? Your condition is worsening, if that could even be possible.

The status of forum chlamydia isn't something to crow about.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Er...if you're doing good for the sake of provable benefits, you're not doing it for the sake of doing good.
