Who you calling “some people?”
reblogged my original Purpose post. They didn’t understand obviously because they said, “What if that child cures cancer.” What purpose is there in curing cancer if we all die anyway and there is no God?
People wouldn’t have to have cancer. They could enjoy a cancer-free life with their loved ones before they die anyway and there is no god.
There is no point in saving lives if their is no God.
And yes there is. Living is fun and I want to live. Life is where all the best stuff happens. Have you heard the albums Jimi Hendrix recorded after he died? They’re terrible! He clearly was at his creative peak between the time he was born and the time he died. Why isn’t enjoying life and wanting to prolong it enough? Why do I need to follow it up with some magical trip to never never land?
You live and you die in a world with no God.
Yeah! That’s what I’m saying, and it’s OK.
A world with God you are dead, born again, and then given an eternal life.
Depending on which particular god myth you believe for no good reason because there’s no evidence for it. Your desire to live forever can’t make it so.
Also we don’t have our children glorify us because we are not perfect and technically we indirectly made them if God exists.
Nah, son, children are made using your junk. It involves a lot of stickiness. Also, you missed the point of my analogy. Why would a god need constant praise, why would that be something that a god would desire? He’s already a god, he’s got limitless powers. He could play any Super Nintendo game he wants and his console never farts out, no matter how old it is. He never even has to blow on the game. Why would he have needs or desires at all? If you were the most powerful entity in any dimension, how could you want for anything?
God is perfect though and he formed us and gave us our life. Why would we not praise his gracious name?
If he was perfect and he created us, you’d think he’d have gotten a better result.
