Atheism Quotes – Daniel Radcliffe

“I’m not religious, I’m an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation.” – Daniel Radcliffe

The religious often ask why atheists are so worried about those who believe in God, if they themselves don’t believe in a God.  Here’s the deal.  I don’t really care what you believe on your own time, but when you push your god in schools and in government legislation that effects everyone, we have a problem.  Like Daniel Radcliffe, I’m a militant atheist in those situations.

Psalm – Chapter 143: A psalm of David.

In the last chapter of Psalms I discussed, it is made clear God watches EVERYTHING you do, but sits by and does nothing when rape, abuse, and molestation takes place.  Such a wonderful, loving God!  What will we learn in Psalm 143?  Let’s find out.

“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness, come to my relief.” – Psalm 143:1

We learned in Psalm 139 that God watches and sees everything.  So why is David asking God to listen?  Of course God is listening.  You just said so in a previous chapter!  The bigger question is why God listens and then does nothing. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t exist!

“Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.” – Psalm 143:7

Again, the most logical reason for God not answering is God doesn’t exist.  Or he’s an asshole.  You make the choice.  An asshole god or non-existent god?

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” – Psalm 143:10

The Bible provides much evidence that God’s will often includes rape, murder, and slavery.  You want to be taught these things?

“In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.” – Psalm 143:12

God’s unfailing love includes the destruction and silencing of others?  LOL!  The Bible is a book of morals?  That’s ridiculous.

Another chapter in Psalms where we see David describing God as this great and might being that loves everyone equally.  The rest of the Bible, however, shows the true nature of God.  God is evil, hateful, and everything BUT love.

Psalm – Chapter 139: For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

Our trek through Psalms continues today with a deep look at chapter 139.

“You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” – Psalm 139:2

This is a polite way of David saying God watches him masturbate.  😊

“Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.” – Psalm 139:4

God knows when a child is about to be molested and yet does nothing.

“If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.” – Psalm 139:8

When I shoot my load, you are there.  Um…this god is a bit creepy!

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” – Psalm 139:14

Fearfully made?  What the hell?

“If only you, God, would slay the wicked!” – Psalm 139:19

Well, God does slay, but he saves his best slaying for innocent children.  See yesterday’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday post for a great example of this.

So what did we learn in this chapter?  God watches us constantly.  Yet he does nothing.  Think of the murders, the rapes, and the child molestation.  God sits and watches and does NOTHING.  This is an evil god.  Plain and simple.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 143:  A psalm of David.

1 Kings 14:17

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse shows that God is NOT just.

“Then Jeroboam’s wife got up and left and went to Tirzah. As soon as she stepped over the threshold of the house, the boy died.” – 1 Kings 14:17

To be fair, you need to read 1 Kings 14 from the beginning to get the full story.  God is angry at the Israelites and as punishment will kill every male in this town.  Even if we assume this was an evil town (again, little evidence of this), God just killed a boy.  A child.  God killed a child because he was in a pissy mood.  This is not a just god.  This is an evil god.  This is a god NO ONE should worship.  The Bible makes this very clear.  Actions speak louder than words and God’s action in this verse was to kill a child.

Psalm – Chapter 138: Of David

Today we take a look at Psalm 138.  Let’s jump right in.

“…for your unfailing love and your faithfulness…” – Psalm 138:2

I’m amazed each time God’s unfailing love and faithfulness is mentioned in the Bible.  Seriously?  The Bible itself points to multiple instances of God NOT loving and not being faithful to his word.

“May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you have decreed.” – Psalm 138:4

Sometimes God decrees the death of others.  I doubt those kings are going to praise God when he decrees their death.

“Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar.” – Psalm 138:6

God looks so kindly on the lowly that he does nothing to help them.

Psalms 138 doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know.  David praises God and claims God is the super duper best god in the world.  Yet the Bible itself tells us God does lie and God does not looking kindly on the lowly.  God is an evil asshole and multiple lines of evidence in the Bible support this.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 139:  For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

Psalm – Chapter 131: A song of ascents. Of David.

After a few very boring chapters in 1 Chronicles, we move back to Psalms for a few chapters.

My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.” – Psalm 131:1-3

The above verses are the entirety of Psalm 131.  David is not haughty?  Give me a break.  David is the very definition of haughty.  Ug.  Even the short chapters in Psalms are disgusting in that they are filled with lies.
