Prove there is a god first, until you do, surely we cannot discuss this subject.

When you prove beyond a doubt there is a god I will consider contributing, until then there is nothing to talk about.

End of thread.

Do you deny there's been discussion on this site regarding how God may or not 'preciate folks going around killing babies?

As an atheist, it is my personal contention that no gods exists, leaving the logically drawn conclusion that those who do stuff in a god's name, ain't.

Frankly, I don't care if you wanna contribute or not.

This "prove there's a god" angle would seem more appropriate to put to those who claim there is one, and how it relates to the OP and such.

Wrong, in that here I post, and the thread continues beyond your declaration.


My intention with presenting the OP is to examine claims and actions and such that have been put forth, whether on this site or "in the world", and I will not stop presenting such just because JehovahsWitness might not wanna join in with us.

Who here would kill a baby because a god didn't like it?


It is hard to believe that an omni-everything creature would not like to eat a few more babies. But it's okay.

Because babies are tasty:

Well................my daughter allowed me to sleep only two hours at a time. For the first two years of her life I was a zombie, but I never considered killing her. I guess she should considered lucky that I was her father and not you know who!!

Joey, there is a rather large difference between God ending a mortal life (when He knows that life continues somewhere else) and humans killing babies.

Stop equivocating. The two are entirely different subjects.

Yea, it's horrible to think of killing a baby because God doesn't like it. Now killing a fetus because the mother doesn't like it, that's a different story Whistle

I can dig it. However, the OP seeks to find those who'd do the killing for a god or gods, as opposed to which gods are cool or not cool with the killing of babies.

How much equivocating is going on when one asks a question?

Would Miss dianaiad kill a baby if her favored god told her to?

Would jgh7 abort a fetus because his preferred god told him to?

Why is it that this question seems so difficult for theists to answer?

Here's the thing; He wouldn't tell me to.

There's no 'if,' here. He wouldn't. To put it in terms an atheist..or non-theist..might accept, that's like asking what I would do if Captain Ahab applied for a job as cabin boy on the MV Steve Irwin.

The only god I know who was interested in killing babies was Moloch. But he has a bad rep. So NO I would not.
And YHWH. At least, as reported in the Bible, quite a lot.
