Why life isn't fair

Yep, Bob Smith needs to win a golf bet, Sam Jones needs to win at the horse races, and football players want their team to defeat their opponents who are also praying for victory. Starving children need food, others need organ transplants because their "intelligent design" isn't so intelligent, and hospitals full of children are being prayed for and no answers come, while many people are praising their god for their new Mercedes or SUV, for their child getting into a college of their choice, or that brand new house and other possessions, etc.

It is ludicrous that people actually believe that there is a god who listens to billions and billions of prayers and wishes (trivial or otherwise) from billions of people (while all the while keeping track of who is bad and who is good, who is going to heaven and who is going to hell as well as paying attention to all those ghosts up in heaven who are worshiping him.) Why don't god believers realize how BIZARRE their belief is that there is a god who is some sort of customer service prayer rep meeting the demands of people, putting some on hold while he waits on the next one in line? Completely goofy.

Pretty soon, all we'll have left is prayer.

America suffered a *huge* defeat today. For the first time in 232 years, enemy combatants captured on the battlefield can now sue our own soldiers in our courts, thanks to radical judges. We may end up putting people like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who masterminded the 911 attacks, back into circulation in the name of Social Justice^tm

Americans of the past from Washington to Grant to MacArthur must be rolling in their graves. Not only are the judges making it up as the go along, they seem to have a colossal death wish.

Well said star!

As you are aware I'm no longer Christian and I'm not sure where I stand on the "God" thing anymore.

I guess I still believe in another realm or dimension or dimensions but I'm not sure there is a God.

One of the things I have a hard time understanding (along with this prayer thingy you mentioned) about a personal God is how He can be joyful right now over the good and bad things while at the same time He is angry over the bad as well as sad. Millions of people are making Him joyful right now while at the same time millions are making Him angry, as well as millions are grieving Him.... etc. He's experiencing every emotion all at once at the same time all the time.

Millions of people are violating His "revaled will" while at the same time they are carrying out "His Hidden" will.
So, when a girl is being raped He is both happy and sad. He is rejoicing because of it yet He is also sad and grieved.

Maybe I'm missing something but this doesn't make any sense to me.

cole, You aren't missing anything. It doesn't make any sense. It makes my brain hurt to even try.

joe, poach away! I did! LOL!

Jason, we're talking about god being a genie for most people.

And prayer doesn't work, and why 4,000+ American soldiers are dead for no reason.
