Truly underwhelming

It’s pretty important to understand that today’s most popular religions are basically localized myths that got out of hand.

Inventor of the World Wide Web Brings Atheist Response to BBC’s ‘Thought for the Day’ →

Apparently it’s not enough to have invented the World Wide Web, but Tim Berners-Lee also has to infect the airwaves of the United Kingdom with his godless propaganda.

For some time now, nonbelievers have been clamoring for representation on BBC radio’s “Thought for the Day” segment, which is always presented from a religious viewpoint. But in a stint as guest-editor for BBC 4’s Today, which hosts the segment, Berners-Lee was able to at least get an “alternative thought” for Boxing Day an hour earlier in the show, but notably, still wasn’t able to co-opt the “Thought for the Day” segment itself on behalf of atheism.

Said Berners-Lee, “It was worth trying to point out that somebody who doesn’t believe in God can still think.”

I have a question for religious people, and I realize it can be construed as offensive, but I legitimately want an answer, if someone can explain it to me, because it makes no sense to me and is the biggest reason I can’t believe a god exists.

If god is omnipotent, all power, and he created you, than he is directly responsible for every single bad thing that ever happens to you, either by causing it or by allowing it to happen. To me, loving a god like that and thanking him for your life sounds to me like thanking someone who permanently maims you for not killing you. If anyone can please explain this to me I would really appreciate it. And I’m aware that I’m going to get a bunch of hate mail for this, and I’m trying to prepare myself for that, but in all honesty, I am not a strong person, so please don’t be too mean :/

That’s not a bad question at all, but I have some bad news for you. You’re never going to get a legitimate answer, because there is none. Your question is too intelligent. You take into account the meaning of words and you don’t simply obey commands and submit when told to submit. If your questions is ‘how could religious people believe that?’ then there’s your answer: obedience and submission. If your asking for a logical explanation, you’re in for a world of painful logical fallacies and derailments.

You should know, though, that to even ask this question is to give too much credit to those making god claims, because the premise presupposes a god exists, when no evidence for one has been provided. It’d be like me asking ‘if there is a yeti, how long does it hibernate?’ It makes no sense to ask about the nature of something that doesn’t have a nature. When we discover a yeti, or a god, that’s the time for questions like these. Until then, put your mind at ease.
