One wonders if that evil so and so (every bad word in all languages) of a deity was sitting on its cloud rubbing its hands and getting off on the terrible events in Paris? If it was omnipotent and loving it would have been capable of stopping this terrorist outrage, so why didn't it?

Because the god these sicko's worship commanded them to do it. Like so many atrocities down the years "they were doing "gods work".

Why should should God intervene? If we're so ignorant, stupid and selfish that we want to destroy each other, why should God stop us? We'll just keep on trying, with all the more intent.

As the evil piece of the proverbial is supposed to have created us in the first place it is responsible for its flawed creation and should rectify matters!

Because the perpetrators allegedly acted on His behalf - perhaps He'd like to distance Himself ? - and because some of the victims were probably devout believers - perhaps He'd like to be of assistance?

As for the "We'll just keep on trying, with all the more intent.", take note:

The perpetrators acted on their own behalf. Just as we all do. Blaming our actions on whatever, doesn't make whatever responsible for them.

Part of the ISIS claim of responsibility for the Paris attacks:

"In a holy attack facilitated by Allah, a group of believers and soldiers of the caliphate " may Allah give it might and victory " targeted the capital of abomination and perversion, the one that carries the banner of the cross in Europe, Paris."

The scumbags certainly believed they were doing god's work.

It is darkness that defines the brightness of the light. The light is being defined as dim or bright by the darkness displayed by evil in this current time.

Why should should God intervene?

Because because, the Bible is rife with examples of Gods intervention in human affairs, hence it's a valid question.

If we're so ignorant, stupid and selfish that we want to destroy each other, why should God stop us?

We'll just keep on trying, with all the more intent.

The answer is quite simple, "we" don't all want to be ignorant, stupid and selfish that we want to destroy each other, there is a tiny minority of people being led by a religious ideology causing them to do bad things in the name of their god. That tiny minority is not only a demographic of the entire populace, but is also a demographic of the religious group affiliated, whereupon the vast majority of followers are also appalled by the atrocities committed by the minority.

And, we can figure out this simple answer without the need of Gods intervention.

If mankind is capable of doing the right thing, how is it that men do the wrong things? And its always to other men. Men have been given the world, and charge of it, why is it so messed up? Why do men blame something other than themselves for what has happened? God, gave men charge of all living things in the earth, God didn"t do this thing in Paris, men did.

It"s because men who have been given the authority to do justice, refuse to do justice, for the sake of their own pockets and financial profits.

Remind them please because atheists forget it. The behave like babies when it comes to God. They curse God for evil who hasn't killed them for being atheists. They mock belief in a sky daddy but want sky daddy God to do magic so they believe He exists. They say He doesn't exist but are always talking about Him, probably more than they do themselves. I could go on and on.

But, by going on and on, you accomplish little more than revealing your ignorance of the simple fact that you would never hear a word from a non-believer about gods if you didn't make the claims of God being good, or doing magic, or existing. Keep those ideas behind closed doors where they belong and you'll never hear about it again.

Interestingly enough, atheists would also be happy never hearing about god again.

Have we got a deal?

Can you name an atheist that has complained because God hasn't intervened? Take a few minutes to reflect on how silly that would be. Could it be that you've misinterpreted his statements? Wasn't he being sarcastic? Let's say no, that one self-proclaimed atheist did complain. Is he to speak for all, for most, for even a fraction of atheists?

Nothing in your post bears even the semblance of a case.

Below is script of Mike Huckabee talking about the Sandy Hook shootings. What he said then answers jj50's question about the Paris shootings perfectly......

"On friday, Neil Cavudo asked me, "Where was God?" And I said that for 50 years, we've systematically attempted to have God removed from our schools, our public activities.... but then the moment we have a calamity we wonder where He was.

Well, the predictable left lit up the airwaves and blogosphere with vile and vicious reaction. And jumped to the conclusion that I said if we had prayer in schools, the shooting wouldn't have happened. Well, I said nothing of the sort.

It's far more than just taking prayer or Bible reading out of the schools. Its the fact that people sue the city so we aren't confronted with a manger scene, or a Christmas carol. That lawsuits as filed to remove a cross that's a memorial to fallen soldiers, churches and Christian owned businesses are told to surrender their values under the edict of government orders to provide tax funded abortion pills.

We carefully and intentionally stop saying thing are sinful, and we call them disorders, sometimes we even say they are normal. And to get to where that we have to abandon bedrock moral truths, then we are asked, well, where was God?

And I respond that as I see it, we've escorted Him right out of our culture and we've marched Him off the public square, and then we express our surprise that a culture without Him, actually reflects what its become.

As soon as the tragedy unfolded, I think God did show up. He showed in the lives of teachers who put their lives between a gunman and their students. He showed up in policemen who rushed into the school not knowing if they would be met with a barrage of bullets. He showed up in the form of hugs and tears, for children, parents, and teachers who had lived through the slaughter. He showed up at the overflow church services where people lit candles and prayed. And He showed up at the White House, where the President invoked His name and quoted from His book.

And in a few days or weeks, we will probably ask God to excuse Himself from view, and we will announce in our arrogant pride that we're now enlightened and educated, and we've evolved beyond needing Him. And somebody's gonna suggest that we pass a law to stop all this kind of thing. I might want to point out that we don't have to pass a new law. There's one that's been around a while that works, if we'd teach it, and observe it. Thou Shalt Not Kill.

Oh, there are about 9 others, but to tell you about them would require bringing God back, and we know how unacceptable that might be."


My word that was good.

"On friday, Neil Cavudo asked me, "Where was God?" And I said that for 50 years, we've systematically attempted to have God removed from our schools, our public activities.... but then the moment we have a calamity we wonder where He was.

Well, the predictable left lit up the airwaves and blogosphere with vile and vicious reaction. And jumped to the conclusion that I said if we had prayer in schools, the shooting wouldn't have happened. Well, I said nothing of the sort.

It's far more than just taking prayer or Bible reading out of the schools. Its the fact that people sue the city so we aren't confronted with a manger scene, or a Christmas carol. That lawsuits as filed to remove a cross that's a memorial to fallen soldiers, churches and Christian owned businesses are told to surrender their values under the edict of government orders to provide tax funded abortion pills.

We carefully and intentionally stop saying thing are sinful, and we call them disorders, sometimes we even say they are normal. And to get to where that we have to abandon bedrock moral truths, then we are asked, well, where was God?

And I respond that as I see it, we've escorted Him right out of our culture and we've marched Him off the public square, and then we express our surprise that a culture without Him, actually reflects what its become.

As soon as the tragedy unfolded, I think God did show up. He showed in the lives of teachers who put their lives between a gunman and their students. He showed up in policemen who rushed into the school not knowing if they would be met with a barrage of bullets. He showed up in the form of hugs and tears, for children, parents, and teachers who had lived through the slaughter. He showed up at the overflow church services where people lit candles and prayed. And He showed up at the White House, where the President invoked His name and quoted from His book.

And in a few days or weeks, we will probably ask God to excuse Himself from view, and we will announce in our arrogant pride that we're now enlightened and educated, and we've evolved beyond needing Him. And somebody's gonna suggest that we pass a law to stop all this kind of thing. I might want to point out that we don't have to pass a new law. There's one that's been around a while that works, if we'd teach it, and observe it. Thou Shalt Not Kill.

Oh, there are about 9 others, but to tell you about them would require bringing God back, and we know how unacceptable that might be."


My word that was good.

It is always gratifying to see politicians coming out against the death penalty.

Your reaction here is similar the the reaction I see in a goat watching a play by Shakespeare.

He misses most of it and is only interested in the leafy scenery.

The trouble with a f*cker like huckerbee he is talking about HIS concept of God.

God gives a rats a&& about the letter T ? a women having abortion ? the lack of christian imagery ?

F*ckerbee knows damm well that children and infants have being dying for along time before science came onto the scene.

No immunization, more women dying in child birth.............it mattered not if you live in the most christian area, prasing his son Jesus christ, and all that christian stuff.

Yet f*ckerbee has no problems trying to play the oh well it's because we abandoned God (his concept of a particular christian God).

And you Ethan are the kind of person who goes along with this aren't you ?

We need more bible ? more Jesus, more Christianity ? (evangelical, conservative christiainty).......and then maybe, just maybe God will shine his protection on you.

Your playing for the wrong team Ethan if you go along with sh*t like this.
