Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

      It would have been nice if you quoted me correctly. Vrede jumped the gun too soon and didn't allow you to correct it.
        Nice of you to quote the Book of Genesis correctly. I especially like the part "In the beginning, God created..."

        GOD didn't create the hurricane's destruction, he allowed it, as he allows you to have free will.

          But, but, but, he created everything. Why did he create a world with hurricanes

          that he could then sit back and allow?

                    No intervention needed if he had done a decent creation job. Please explain why he created so many destructive things.

                                  Did you always mind your parents, eat your fruits & vegetables. Did they punish you for not eating healthy.
                                    The Bible encourages us to “choose life, by listening to GODS voice,” that is, by choosing to obey his commands. Deuteronomy 30:19, 20. This offer would be meaningless, even cruel, if we lacked free will. Instead of forcing us to do what he says, God warmly appeals to us: “O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments. Then your peace would become just like a river.” Isaiah 48:18.

                                    I saw a rabbit the other day, but it went down a hole. I will need to get gasoline soon according to the gauge. I like to meander through grocery stores and load up my cart and then unload it, ultimately not buying anything. They don't much like it, but it's what I do.

                                    An entity who created the universe(s) and who existed alone before there was a universe, does not hold casual conversations with the results of the creation over whether they are able to do anything outside the power of the entity.

                                    According to the fundies:

                                    "Miracle" rescues or recoveries = god's intervention
                                    Bad things that happen to "sinners", up to and including hurricanes = god's intervention
                                    Bad things that happen randomly, even to kids = god's nonintervention or "free will", even if they happen randomly

                                    Either fundies are assholes, or god is.
                                    It really is time to stop being nice about stupidity.

                                    GOD didn't create the hurricane's destruction, he allowed it, as he allows you to have free will.

                                    But, but, but, he created everything. Why did he create a world with hurricanes

                                    that he could then sit back and allow?
                                      Would you like for GOD to intervene and take away your free will?
                                      I thought that the reason Adam and Eve were evicted from Eden was because they chose free will and the knowledge of good and evil over what god told them to do. Yet you say god gave us free will; so which is it? a punishment or a blessing? or a myth?
                                        The jealous serpent came to the garden.
                                          Did you always mind your parents, eat your fruits & vegetables. Did they punish you for not eating healthy.
                                            The Bible encourages us to “choose life, by listening to GODS voice,” that is, by choosing to obey his commands. Deuteronomy 30:19, 20. This offer would be meaningless, even cruel, if we lacked free will. Instead of forcing us to do what he says, God warmly appeals to us: “O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments. Then your peace would become just like a river.” Isaiah 48:18.


                                            Yeppers, we got us a runner.

                                            According to the fundies:

                                            "Miracle" rescues or recoveries = god's intervention
                                            Bad things that happen to "sinners", up to and including hurricanes = god's intervention
                                            Bad things that happen randomly, even to kids = god's nonintervention or "free will", even if they happen randomly

                                            Either fundies are assholes, or god is.

                                            Both?

                                                          Ah, that clarifies things somewhat. Cat fan equates belief with knowledge. This is not good policy and will only result in misfortune. I might believe the world is flat or I might believe I can fly or I might believe anything. My belief does not make it fact and it does not equate to knowledge other than the fact I know I believe it....circular reasoning.
