Suspending your disbelief for a moment, God is all love and joy and peace (if you believe in that sort of thing.)
Except for the stonings, beheadings, human sacrifices, genocides..... (if you believe that sort of thing.)  ::)

I've always wondered how they get to the claim (god is love, etc) from the available "evidence" (stonings, beheadings, etc) other than straight thru the imagination to wishful thinking.

So, God is chemicals in the brain? That makes much more sense.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Yeah, he loves everyone so much that he created hell..................you know.  Just in case they don't love him back.

The universe is fascinating, intricate and complex..but it is hardly benevelent.

Never claimed it was benevolent.  It is in fact indifferent.

It doesn't really seem to care about anyone

That's because it doesn't.

I guess what Im saying is that God and the Universe are not really interchangeable all the time

You're right.  Nor need they be.


Quote
and that at some level we need God and and His law

No ma'am, we do not.  God and his supposed "law" is responsible for more death, destruction and misery than everything else combined.

We need freethought and reason.  We need evidence based thinking, not faith based thinking.

Dear Religion,
Today we safely brought a man back from outer space, while you shot a child in the face for wanting to go to school.
Sincerely,

Ugh, I'm trying to catch up on all these threads because I haven't been here for a while.....and I find that Sister Agatha is back? Lovely. "She" has tenacity I guess.
