Greetings, please read my message. Ok. Something to know right off the bat. I am an atheist. Now before you get uptight and angry hear me out. I am not here to denounce you faith, I am here because I believe that surely a community of Christians can answer whatever questions I pose. I swear I will not bash, hate, or otherwise incite argument, only intelligent discussion. 1. How come when I tell a Christian I am atheist it changes their opinion of me so greatly? I think no less or more of Christians because of your beliefs. 2. A man tells me he has an orange. I ask him to prove it, he shows me the orange and all is well. However, whenever I ask for proof of you God all I get is dirty looks and accusations of wrongdoing. 3. How come centuries of history, science, archaeology, and philosophy is regarded as useless? And it is often seen that someone who has a vision is a more relevant source of information? 4. Inconsistencies in the bible. Some passages are clearly disproving of each other. So why do certain people of your faith write off the one they don't like as much. Isn't there just as much chance the other is true? Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel? (a) God did (2 Samuel 24: 1) (b) Satan did (I Chronicles 2 1:1) God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine? (a) Seven (2 Samuel 24:13) (b) Three (I Chronicles 21:12) Did Joshua and the Israelites capture Jerusalem? (a) Yes (Joshua 10:23, 40) (b) No (Joshua 15:63) 5. Do you believe your completely all-knowing God understands humor and intention? If you have questions about Atheism I am all too happy to answer them. Just know that Atheism isn't an attack on faith, its a denouncing of such.
