Yesterday I told my son he couldn't have a snack because it was almost dinner time, he screamed "you never want me to be happy!" and ran out of the room.  His point was just as valid as this one.

This is basically saying "If there's a god, why doesn't he give me everything I want?" wrapped in the old manipulating appeal "think of the children!"

I'm not especially religious (and I'm not Christian in any case), but comments like this are a pet peeve of mine.  I respect atheism, but I expect atheism to be based on rationality and logic, and this is neither of those things.

Let's compare stories.

You and your son:

Yesterday i told my son he couldn't have a snack because it was almost dinner time.

God and his kids

Yesterday i told my child i wasn't goin to help him when he was screaming being abused, beaten to submission and then raped.
Because it was dinner time.

You and your son:

He screamed "you never give me what i want" and ran out of this room.

God and his kids

He screamed "why didn't you help me when i needed you the most"
And went to the hospital where actually got help.

But yea...!

His point was as valid as this one.

+Joe Naylor​ if your son was being raped last nigth and asked you to help him. You wouldn't have hasitated to help him..
Do you see the difference now?
Do i have to quote the post again?

A person asking god for a new car, and not getting it, yeaaa.! That would be equivalent to your kid asking for a snack and not getting it.

The whole argument is basically:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

I found this an interesting read. Judgement Porn.. .perfect new term.

The social media mobs fight against the Confederate flag show us we are slowly forgetting how to oppose something without seeking its utter destruction.

Dave Grohl breaks leg and comes back to finish the concert

I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream
Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the Foo Fighters, has apparently broken his leg during a concert in Sweden - before carrying on his performance. Eyewitnesses said Grohl, 46, fell off the stage during his second song at a concert in Gothenburg on Friday. In a video uploaded to YouTube, Grohl tells fans: "I think I just broke my leg...so you have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters we gotta come back and finish the show but right now...I'm ...

Reality doesn’t exist until it’s measured, at least for very small things, new research has found.

We're all just making up philosophical fantasies unless you make a testable repeatable experiment. It's still fun :-)

I also never put my degree to work - I went straight into writing software.

I don't mean to diminish her accomplishment, but in this photo she looks white enough to be an official with the NAACP.

It's about time we had another Rainbow Six game!  Loved Rainbow Six, I hope this lives up to it.

Full disclosure: This is a referral link that gives me a bonus in their contest or something.

So...  How is this different than Caitlin Jenner?  If you can decide you don't like your biological sex and change it, can't you change your race too?  I don't get the difference.

I'm not asking out of spite or belittling anyone's personal trials, I just don't understand.
There is another controversy over the veracity of representations of minority status in Washington. We previously discussed the controversy raised by the allegedly false claims of Senator Elizabeth...

I don't know anything at all about this woman, this article is all I read about it.

What I find most fascinating about it is how our various beliefs get complicated when they hit real life.  We believe certain groups should be respected which are defined only by their biology, but now we also believe individuals should be respected and not limited by their biology.  When someone born male decides to be a woman I'm see a bunch of comments with hashtags like #courage and #hero, but when a person born white decides to be black the comments are quite different.

Heh. Clever design on this piece at +NPR . It shows you a typical page from a fake new! breakthrough! diet! book--but with blue boxed links to illustrate how you've been had.
From Paleo to vegan to raw, nutrition gurus package their advice as sound science. But peel the studies away and you'll find timeless myths and superstitions of religion.
