Would You Vote For God?

Posted by: briantheliberal

Not that you would have a choice to begin with (considering it's either him or burn in hell), but if the Abrahamic (Jew, Christian, Muslim) god were a potential candidate in either a presidential or supreme leader position of government, would you support him knowing what his laws and limitations are?

  • Yes. I would vote for God.

  • No. I would not vote for God.

  • Well, as Brian so pointed out, I don't have a choice either way. Why even vote? He's going to win the election anyway.

  • According to Judo-Christian ideas, god is near perfect. So yes, I would vote for the Abrahamic god (assuming he's real). Being a perfect god, he would obviously be able to help achieve a near-perfect society.

  • "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good" (Deuteronomy 10:12-13)

  • I'm an atheist but if God did exist then yes I would vote for God. Why wouldn't you vote for God? God is literally perfect.

  • NO. BRIAN THE LIBERAL HAS SHOWN ME THE LIGHT O LORDY LORDY. I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT OF ATHEISM AND IT IS BRIGHT. I HAVE SEEN THE TRUTH. ATHEIST IS THE TRUTH. I AM NOW A COMMUNIST LIBREAL LIBETARTIAN CHRISTIAN ATHEIST EVANGELICAL

  • He committed genocide and murdered more people than stalin and hitler combined

  • I'm christian, but come on. Why would I vote for someone who, if the bible is to be assumed as literally true, has practically killed humanity countless times? The one in the bible, no chance, that God is mostly awful.

  • Not unless he has cookies.

  • i vote for women.

Feel free to explain why. And I would suggest watching the video I provided before voting.
Gingeral3 says2015-09-19T21:13:32.8651623Z
I watched it and i didn't care. Why care about anything? DDO is filled with people who care. Stop caring
briantheliberal says2015-09-19T21:17:27.2938868Z
GIngeral3, Honestly I have no idea wth you're talking about but I think you do care.

Oh cool, Willkommen in DDO (I don't think I said that right).
briantheliberal says2015-09-19T23:26:06.6913698Z
58539672, Pretty sure that's not what I said and I believe that's why I phrased the question to a conditional tense. I didn't ask the question that implies you HAVE to vote yes, that was the point.
58539672 says2015-09-19T23:41:30.9816947Z
@briantheliberal "Not that you would have a choice to begin with (considering it's either him or burn in hell)". You and the video both make it clear in their first opening remarks that we don't have much of a choice. Unless you like going to Hell, that is. If you didn't mean it, then the statement should not have been included at all. It is just wasted words used to show an extra layer of contempt for the religion.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:12:47.5021236Z
58539672, That is clearly an opinionated and hypothetical statement that I included for clarification. Instead of playing a game of semantics that clearly doesn't make sense, how about thinking rationally and voting based on the criteria that I actually set? The question was, "would you vote for god?" which is conditional, hence the term "would." You made it into something it clearly isn't because you wanted to avoid choosing the alternative answer. So you dwell on and misinterpret words that clearly have nothing to do with the actual question. It's quite annoying but I wouldn't really expect anything less from you since you (and people like you on this site) play this ridiculous game all the time when it's convenient for you to do so. Why even bother voting just so you can be a condescending a-hole?

@briantheliberal https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/ad-hominem
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:15:48.5412841Z
Triangle, claiming to be perfect, and actually BEING perfect are two different things. The concept of the Judeo-Christian god clearly is NOT perfect just because his followers and their holy book claim he is. The Bible/Torah in itself highlights many of his flaws and the book itself was said to be written (or messaged) by him.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:17:02.7509598Z
Triangle, also wrong. There is no ad hominem, I asked a question. I didn't directly call him that. Nice try though.
triangle.128k says2015-09-20T00:18:49.5453405Z
@briantheliberal What are some example of his flaws? Cherry picked bible verses? Because anti-theists seem to be great at cherry picking and misinterpreting many phrases in the abrahamic books.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:24:15.2013319Z
Triangle, I clearly said HIS flaws, not the flaws of those who follow him. The Bible is filled with blatant contradictions. The God of the Bible contradicted himself countless times. He also possesses human-like characteristics, which are flawed by nature, such as angry and the inability to make rational decisions (such as flooding the entire planet). But now that you mention it, the very fact that his supposed creations are flawed shows he is also flawed because humans are said to be made in HIS image. He condones many things that clearly aren't beneficial to humanity, such as slavery, and rape. He places value on material possessions, also a flaw if he is considered a benevolent being. May I go on or is that enough for you?
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:27:28.4085704Z
Also I find it ironic how you accuse "anti-theists" of "cherry picking and misinterpreting many phrases in the abrahamic books" when that's all the followers of these religions ever do. Why? Because it is virtually impossible to live by their rules, because most of them are blatantly illogical, contradictory or simply barbaric.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T00:31:30.4499730Z
@briantheliberal "when that's all the followers of these religions " quite a large over generalization, because you aren't only talking about Christians in this case but also countless other religions, did you do meticulous research on Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism, Wicca, Neo paganism Zoroastrianism, Falun Gong, Helenism, and Druidism to make that conclusion? Because that's just barely touching the surface.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:36:21.2143858Z
UtherPenguin, what I said was not a generalization, it's a fact. Everyone has their own interpretations of what they claim to believe, or not believe. Even atheists interpret their lack of belief in god differently from one another. Pointing out this irrefutable fact of human existence is not a generalization. We are not all the same, and we do not all believe the same things in the same ways. Why do you think there are so many different denominations of the same religion? Because the followers of these religions can't even agree on what is actually right.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:39:19.4143281Z
Also I don't see you calling out Triangle for ACTUALLY generalizing people. You seem to have conveniently overlooked the very thing you accuse me of when it's literally right in front of you. Oh right, he doesn't agree with me so it doesn't matter if he does it.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T00:41:21.7013430Z
@briantheliberal Because I didn't join the discussion until now, so naturally, I would follow the most recent comment, which at the time was your arguments. Don't jump to conclusions so quickly.
58539672 says2015-09-20T00:44:25.3948755Z
@briantheliberal You are generalizing a much larger and more diverse percentage of the population than Triangle is. Larger by a lot actually.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:52:00.1844048Z
UtherPenguin, then I would suggest not jumping into a conversation without knowing exactly what it happening in it. Just a word of advice.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:53:35.9222185Z
58539672, Actually I didn't. But continue to hold onto that lie. How is what I said a generalization when I literally said it applies to EVERYONE of EVERY religion, or lack of. Reading is fundamental skill that many people here seem to overwhelming avoid.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:53:47.2322910Z
Overwhelmingly*
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T00:54:05.6404090Z
@briantheliberal I would suggest not being so patronizing.
58539672 says2015-09-20T00:55:26.9013299Z
@UtherPenguin He doesn't know any better. Brian has always been a self righteous bigot.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:56:59.4255230Z
UtherPenguin, welp. Again not seeing you condemn anyone else for the same sht. I'm always the patronizing one because you don't like what I say, that's not MY problem.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T00:58:10.5307788Z
58539672, LOL I am a bigot? This coming from the person who calls anyone a bigot when they disagree with you. Enlighten me as to how I force any of my beliefs on you or anyone else? I'll wait.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T01:00:02.7578982Z
When you feel offended and can't defend yourself, throw out the bigot card to save your @ss. Yeah that would really help. Pathetic.
58539672 says2015-09-20T01:08:18.5602764Z
@briantheliberal "Bigot- a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions." Lets see, in this particular poll you called peoples religious views as "blatantly illogical, contradictory or simply barbaric." In general you openly criticize anyone with a religious, conservative, or traditional viewpoint as being the worst human beings the planet has to offer, regardless of their actual personality or origin. You lump all of them into one category as a group of people who are backwards, intolerant, and need to be removed from society, despite many of them who have none of those qualities you generalize them for having. You are a Bigot, just like all those conservative bigots that you criticize.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T01:29:19.1731572Z
"you called peoples religious views as "blatantly illogical, contradictory or simply barbaric." - Because they clearly lack logic and are contradictory and barbaric. Definition of logic - "the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference." - Definition of contradict - "to speak contrary to the assertions of something." Definition of barbaric - "without civilizing influences; uncivilized; primitive." Let's see, with that being said, every major religion on the planet relies exclusively on blind faith instead of reasonable inferences, or even valid scientific evidence making them illogical by definition. The Bible contains thousands of contradictions some of which you will find here - http://infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html automatically making the religion contradictory. And lastly, they emerged in the Bronze age of human existence, before modern interpretation, scientific theory, they condone slavery, rape, countless murders, war, genocide, and human exploitation. Hmm, sounds pretty barbaric to me.

"In general you openly criticize anyone with a religious, conservative, or traditional viewpoint as being the worst human beings the planet has to offer, regardless of their actual personality or origin." - STRAW MAN ARGUMENT #1 - I do not do any of this, you're just making false accusations, as usual. I judge people based on their beliefs like EVERYONE ELSE. But even when I do THAT you still call me a bigot so which is it? Am I wrong for criticizing actual people or their beliefs? Am I not allowed to disagree with people whose views do not align with mine without you falsely accusing me of being intolerant of them? The problem here is not me, it's you and your fragile feelings and distaste for what I believe. So what do you do? You falsely accuse me of things I do not do, call me a bigot, and pretend you know what the hell you are talking about like you always do. Just because I hold strong beliefs that do not align with YOUR worldview doesn't not make me a bigoted person. Because if your criticisms of my character were actually valid, you would see that although I am against something, I still tolerate it and feel people should have the right to believe anything they want. You on the other hand, do not. You constantly bash and try to silence my beliefs, my oppositions and my worldview, making YOU the bigot here, not me. So I would suggest taking a good look at yourself before you call anyone else a bigot.

God don't burn people in hell for following their free will. He only punishes those who sin.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T01:44:22.9025503Z
Haroush, first of all it's "there are" when discussing a plural subject. And second, thanks for helping to prove my point. It's people like YOU and 58539672 that are the actual bigots. Blatantly intolerant and egotistical. Yet somehow anyone who disagrees with any of you are the intolerant ones. Status quo hypocrisy at its finest.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T01:47:07.4368050Z
AtkinsonCameron, "God don't burn people in hell for following their free will. He only punishes those who sin." - This doesn't even make any sense. Part of the concept of free will includes sin. It's in my "free will" to lie about something, but it doesn't make it any less sinful.
58539672 says2015-09-20T01:48:35.7489711Z
@briantheliberal You still can't see your own bigotry. Even bigotry towards other bigots is still bigotry. All humans are bigots because no one is completely tolerant toward all view points. The difference between you and me is that I can recognize, admit, and work with my bigotry.
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T02:02:00.3553288Z
58539672, Likewise you can't see your own bigotry. That's the problem. Everything you call me a bigot and criticize me for do not even align with the very definition of bigotry. Calling religion WHAT IT IS and expression my opposition towards the concept does NOT make me a bigoted person. You falsely accusing me of being a bigot because I don't agree with you makes YOU a bigot. Also, you're full of it, because you literally sat here and attacked me exclusive for "being a bigot" and now that I point out your bigoted ways suddenly "All humans are bigots because no one is completely tolerant toward all view points." - What a load of sht. You can't admit to being a bigot yourself, now you are making general statements about all humans being bigots to avoid and compensate for it. Not once did you honestly admit to being bigoted towards me or anyone else. So spare me the bullsht. And no, you cannot be bigoted towards bigotry, that's a blatant and obvious contradiction.
Haroush says2015-09-20T02:07:04.2452768Z
That's not true @ Atkinson. We all sin, even those who are Christian. The difference between Christians and non-believers is the acceptance of Yeshua as Adonai and his father as El Elyon. This in turn also means you will do your best to follow the commandments given to us to follow with the humility to repent or "to change" or in other words " turn away" from the previous sins made in order to come closer to the supreme being himself. As Yeshua once said,“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
briantheliberal says2015-09-20T02:08:56.7843982Z
And to clarify, while I do not think highly of religion, I never bashed anyone personally simply for being religious - THAT would make me a bigot. I never told anyone that they shouldn't be religious for any reason. - THAT would make me a bigot. And lastly, I also never forced my beliefs on anyone of an opposing belief. - THAT would make me a bigot. Expressing opposition and valid criticisms of someone else's beliefs is NOT bigotry. You did the exact opposite and resorted to everything I previously mentioned.
Haroush says2015-09-20T02:09:00.6785547Z
