100 Reasons Why the Christian God Is Stupid

Okay I'll start with the first ten obvious reasons that spring to mind

1. Cancer doesn't only kill non christians
2. Infant mortality rate (why?)
3. Genesis isn't remotely factual and as its his first attempt at literal self aggrandisement, this is not the work of a solid intellect
4. The Platypus
5. Fundementalist Christians *
6. Evangelical Christians *
7. Pat Robertson *
8. Jerry Falwell *
9. A.I.D.S kills more heterosexuals than homosexuals,
10. David/Radrook/154's displays of Cognitive dissonance

*an individuals intelligence can be judged by the intellect of his witnesses

God fails to heal amputees and reverse spinal schiolosis and kyphosis. Aids kills innocent victims of aids such as babies and rape victims not just gay people and sexually active heterosexuals. If God exists he's pretty careless ind ineffectual.

"God" ordains the execution of pre-maritally non-virginal women, and women who seem to be pre-maritally non-virginal because their hymen was broken asexually. That's... pretty stupid.

I have been told that God has a plan, these things are all part of His PlanTM, we are not to question His PlanTM. That's all I got.

Except, I would like to revise said His PlanTM.

I've got another ten here...

11. He promised his chosen people a land “flowing with milk and honey” – Yeah, right! That’s why they regularly had to visit Egypt because of famine. It also belonged to somebody else...

12. In his 10 Commandments he didn’t tell people to “wash their hands”, and make them healthier.

13. After building the universe, he couldn’t be bothered to sweep up afterwards, so there are millions of bits of rock & ice just waiting to smash into the earth and wipe out all life. Oh, and he said that it was “good”.

14. It took him SIX days to make everything? What a wimp!

15. Human design – he only needed to turn his back for five minutes for them to start sinning again – and again, and again......

16. He managed to lose the recipe to Manna – after all, he fed 2 million in the desert for 40 years, but can’t manage to do similarly these days.

17. He apparently stopped the sun, so that a battle could be won – but couldn’t stop a few hijackers.

18. The whole Garden of Eden thing – I know it’s not real, but – we apparently have two child-like humans, and He tells them NOT to do something. Yeah, that’s how to deal with kids, huh?

19. Creating light before the sun?

20. Creating plants also before the sun – so no heat or photosynthesis, so they all die.

Dumb wossname....

1. If god exists and the bible is true, he's a major jerk and so is anyone who is willing to follow such mean-spirited and nonsensical rules.
2. If god exists and the bible is not true, either:
2a. He's a liar.
2b. Whoever wrote the bible are liars and God's followers are stupid dupes. If his followers are stupid dupes then he's a failure as far as gods go.
3. If god does not exist then the question is moot.

In conclusion:
God is either a jerk with jerky followers, a liar, a failure with stupid dupes as followers, or does not exist. Generally a major failure all around.

22 He created a series of parasites that have humans as an essential part of their life cycle

23 He decided to make sure his word was only heard in an insignificant part of the world, thus ensuring millions died without any chance of salvation for centuries

24 He didnt make his word very clear, thus lowering the chance that anyone actually has it right, condemning more

25 He neglected to mention "dont build on faultlines or next to volcano's"

26 He also forgot to mention he created the america's, antartica and australia

27 Speaking of which, he created austrialian wildlife but then didn't put "Do not go here, everything is poisonous" signs up

28 If his people are so chosen, why not give them the recipy for gunpowder and the schematics for a steam engine?

?) Because every time that science agrees with them science is correct. When science disagrees with them then science is incorrect.
?) Because they claim a book is perfect, yet they never bother reading it nor base themselves on its entirety.
?) Because they believe in a magical book that is supposed to be perfect understand of the universe yet contradicts itself every other page.
?) Because they believe in a magical book that is suppose to be a continouation of a previous religion even though the people of said religion find it laughable.
?) Because other magical books came to continue their religion and they find them to be laughable with no regards to irony and the previous answer.

Interesting bias you have there, particularly as you are well known for having no small background in old school gods and religions ...
Because christians are the ones in power in certain parts of the world.
Because christians make the most headlines when they try to enforce their silly beliefs on the rest of us.
Because christians are the ones insisting on suppressing knowledge and science.

I don't recall scientologists demanding that we learn their teachings in science classrooms.

Heck, how many hindus or jews started threads here on the likes of "I have proof god is real and you are all blind\stupid\in denial about him"?

The only religion that comes even close to christianity is islam due to the extremisim of certain terror group.

If any other group will make a move to try and take over the world, we'll tackle them as well. Funny thing? So will you...

He doesn't necessarily have one. This thread is obviously a parody of the 'Why Evolution is Stupid' thread, where every single person arguing against evolution was a Christian, so Marduk may well have picked their God for that reason. There are more Muslims on the FRDB forum and I see more threads about Allah there. Or maybe Marduk does have a particular beef, I dunno.

Well apart from the obvious fact that Hebrew is a language and Jewish is a population (you can't have a god of the Hebrew language any more than you can have a God of the English language) I called him the christian God as this thread is a parody of the 100 reasons why evolution is stupid thread and it is the Christian God who is apparently been pushed by the faithful in that thread as an alternative to scientific fact. No personal bias is present

I think you are confusing me with someone else, I have an old school background in history study, it includes Gods and Religions but I have no belief centred on the vast majority of them.

I don't like that commandment about not being allowed to smell the beefburgers being cooked on next doors barbecue, I don't see why I should burn in Hell for that, surely they should be ahead of me in the queue for tempting me

Reason # 17,000,000,006

God performed an innumerable slew of miracles in ancient times, but left no observable evidence of them, so that only naturalistic explanations can be drawn from the data available, leading modern scientists to explain the world and its origins in a way that takes into account only observable evidence, which as it turns out is wrong, and we're all going to suffer eternal damnation because we accept what the evidence tells us, and not what the unverifiable social codes and creation myths of a Bronze Age farming culture would have us believe.

Rape. Seriously, what the ****? What kind of sadistic cruel monster makes the human body so that it's possible to drive stuff up the anus or vagina against the recipient's will, and thus ruin their lives in five minutes, and then add insult to injury by giving certain people a drive towards doing this?

No, wait, let me guess. Free will.

Especially given IQ does (or used to) divide the raw score by your age. 0 divided by infinity is definitely damned tiny.
