    This "righteous" God of hers reigns down punishment on innocent people, including children, as retribution for the crimes of others?

    Can she tell us why anyone should even try to BE virtuous, if God will punish us anyway?

    •  Because, silly! (5+ / 0-)

      Also, by arbitrarily punishing the innocent faithful,  more pointedly, the committed (believers, not mental health inmates . . . .  Hmm. then again . . . .) god gets to test their faith.

      By equally harming and damaging everyone, believers and non-believers, god gets to see just how strong faith is in part of the first group. Also, if he punishes non belief often enough, he is bound to drive one or two of them insane from the pain and pressure, and lead them back into the flock of sheeple believers.

      Best of all are two other tricks god has bestowed upon society.

      1. He created prayer so people would waste their time on their knees, begging for mercy, pleading for help or health, and asking for some financial miracle to occur. Then, he gets to ignore them.

      2. He created the "close door" buttons that exist on all elevators, only to make sure that they are never connected to anything that might affect the operation of the elevator. He gets hours of amusement, watching people press that useless button, in the vain hope that it might actually work.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
