Hello. I love God, and so are the other Aspies. God is great. He is watching over us and doesn't like sins and negativity. Anyone who doesn't believe in God does not get it.

Any comments?

And then of course there is this excellent rebuttal to all the various iterations similar to the post by the OP

RichardDawkins wrote:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”


It is clear to me that it is the the OP and all their fellow believers who are the ones "who don't get it"

I agree. C.S. Lewis was an atheist who didn't "get it" until he rejoined the Church of England (with some prodding by his friend, J.R.R. Tolkien). At that point, he really got it. I believe that his The Screwtape Letters was very good, and funny.

Nice chip. Does your shoulder hurt?

Considering that many Atheists have studied the Bible more deeply than as many Christians, it is safe to say that both groups "get it", just in different ways.

For the record, I am a Theist - I just hate religion, that's all.

Yair. I'll comment.

This place is crawling with fanatical egomaniacs who flatly refuse to consider any kind of Supreme Being Who will not do as they demand.

They cannot (will not) comprehend that there might be a plan that is beyond their tiny minds.
