  1. But what IF Jesus Christ really was the Son of God in the flesh and the Holy Bible is real?

    • But what IF Jesus Christ never existed and the Bible is a plagiarized patchwork without an ounce of historical value?
      Or what IF sun revolved around the Earth and the Lord God really was Satan?
      What IF this life is the only one you will ever have and there is no life hereafter?
      Can you imagine your life without a God. What would it be like? What would you do IF God never existed? Would you live like you are living now or would you change something?

    • That’s not a very honest question. You can’t answer it, and there are thousands of other impossible to answer hypothetical questions. What if Muhammad really was Allah’s messenger? What if Jim Jones really was the risen Jesus? What if Ahura Mazda is the real god? Try asking questions that are answerable.

      • Great reply! Religious questions aren’t even framed as answerable questions. Let us commit then, as David Hume would have put it, these absurdities to the flames!

    • “Two elements are needed to form a truth :a fact and an abstraction.” Rémy de Gourmont

  2. #22 should specify a RECTAL thermometer. 😉

  3. Some religious folks get high on that dope.
    But when it comes to life, we all are fanatics, in one way or another. 🙂

  4. Clever sound bites all but none are real arguments against the existence of God.

  5. I am a God-believer, but I also believe there is more mystery to God than we realize. Your 100 comments underscore for me the mystery God is.

  6. Hi Aklais. Interesting I do not get involved with religion. Thank you so much for liking my poem ‘ The Cursed Statue!’ Best Wishing. The Foureyed Poet.
