The God of the Bible Can be Disproved: The God of the Bible (and the Koran, and the Book of Mormon, etc.) already has enough going against him…If he were really the author of the Bible, it would probably be much less full of atrocities, contradictions, plagiarisms and absurdities.

Then, I came to the realization that if I prayed to God for a given number of things, and I prayed to a rock for that same number of things, the chances are very good that the rock and God would answer roughly the same number of times. and after all is said and done, every God seems to answer in roughly the same proportion . ” That’s true, but it’s true for one very important reason: you can’t disprove something you don’t have proof of.

Muslims pray to their God, Hindus to theirs, Catholics and Protestants to theirs, Wiccans to theirs . I can’t disprove leprechauns, or Bloody Mary, or ghosts, or Smurfs, or anything that I don’t first have proof of.

Anyone else who claimed to know their religion was true deep in their heart was clearly suffering a Satanic delusion.

At the exact same time, I believed a clearly mythological story with blind faith and nothing more to back it up than the fact that I knew deep in my heart that it was true.

I studied apologetics so I could prove this to anyone I met.

Sometimes he would answer positively, other times negatively, and other times by seeming to tell me to wait.

We shouldn’t worship a monster because he offers us salvation from a pit of fire he himself is threatening us with.
