Yep, agree completely. And better according to whom?oh well it's better that way
I like to think that the people advocating for this god don't actually think, themselves, that the world in where there is all this suffering is better than one in which that wasn't the case, if we're using human wellbeing as a measure for what makes a "good" world.
That they could only be thinking that because of their indoctrination. Surely so.
So then it must be according to god that a world full of suffering is better.
Indoctrination is so f*cking sad.
The things that theists will argue for, or defend, on behalf of their god, blows my mind.
19“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
So you're telling me that literally no two Christians have ever come together to pray about any of these things?
Eradicating covid-19, and every other disease for that matter, this instant?
Restoring limbs to amputees?
Solving the world's hunger, water and homelessness crises?
Ending the need for war?
I mean I guess not, right? After all, this is the word of god, and the passage is pretty unambiguous.
And yet they'll still find an excuse, despite all of the mega churches that congregated in the pandemic to pray it away and ended just facilitating the spread further.
My thoughts are probably quite scrambled as I only got a couple hours sleep last night.
But yes, religion is definitely irrational, frustrating, destructive, and full of so many damn holes to pick them cherries through.
