Re: Atheist Nightmare - God's Magic Banana Factory

Somebody had to do it. Glad it wasn't me. Pinapples hurt!

Yoo-hoo! Oh Jehovamagod?

In the same vein as the question, “Why won’t God heal amputees?” I would like to know:

Why won’t God heal Progeria? It seems a lot simpler than re-growing a limb. A minor, microscopic tweak is all it would take, yet no case has ever been reversed. What could a baby do to “deserve” this fate?

If you’re a fan of the “born in sin” excuse, try these extra-point questions:

1. If “original sin” explains the plight of these children, how did you get a free pass?
2. By this logic, why shouldn’t we just murder the German and Italian offspring of former Fascist war criminals?
3. If a God treats his possessions like worthless garbage, why does that God deserve worship?

If you’re a fan of the, “Maybe it’s a punishment inflicted on the parents” excuse, here’s your question:

1. Would you poison your family pet to punish your child?

I know there’s a bullshit answer to all of these questions, so help me out here. If your answers are convincing enough, who knows? I might start believing in the Magical Meddlesome Super-Alpha instead of the simple laws of probability. Don’t hold your breath.

Filmstrip From a Guest Speaker

A friend sent me a link to one of the best explanations of this confusion of ideas thing I have ever seen. Dance Monkeys Dance!

I've been tagged on my last post, by the way, but that will have to wait. I hope all the good victims aren't taken before I can get back to that!
