The Contradictions Rarely End When We’re Talking About Religion

Godless Mama has an entertaining list of contradictions she hears from religious people all the time.


For example, when they claim to know God’s intentions while saying we can’t know God’s intentions:

The conversation goes like this:

Theist: “God loves us and wants us to be saved. God is just and merciful. God will provide. God always gives us what we need, not just what we want.”

Atheist: “If god loves us, is merciful, provides, and always gives us what we need, why do children starve to death?”

Theist: “We are mere mortals and can’t expect to understand His ways. You can’t apply human standards to god.”

Plenty more where that came from right here.
