The chance of a specific person being born is around 1 out of 200000000 with all the right factors in place. A slight change of factor and someone else is born, you could look at yourself and say all the factors were meant for you to be born or it doesn't matter because someone would be born anyway and that person would still have the same questions. Now compare a single person to the universe, I don't understand why some say the cosmological constant had to be fine tuned because the probability is so low. The universe is vast, comparing the probability that a specific person is born to the probability to the birth of the universe I personally do not think there is the need for any fine tuning unless I believe that the factors around each person's birth is fine tuned as well.

I must've been 14 when I decided not to believe in the Christian god, and it was really quite simple. I read the story of Abraham and was puzzled as to why my Pastor always praised Abraham of being a good man. So I went and asked him why Abraham did not try convince god not to kill his son or simply refuse and he said we have to have faith in god because his wisdom surpasses ours and give him our unwavering devotion. As his son was a friend of mine I asked a very simple question..... "would you kill your son if god asked you to? "...a question to which he maneuvered his way out of but I knew his answer was no.

Let's face facts you are a psycho if you will kill your kid for your faith and I doubt many parents would, funny enough when this story is told by a Christian they have this sense of pride by how faithful Abraham is to god and god is so proud of Abraham he blesses him abundantly and it was at that point I consciously decided I couldn't be one of his followers because I could never that level of faith. I still did admire Jesus character and still do, so for a while it was, I like you but not your dad kinda relationship till I thought it was a bit silly.

I became an active atheist because at some point I felt I was under demonic possession as I just could not get my head around the god concept and I am sure many kids in Christian home go through the same feeling.

So my question to believers....."if you were Abraham would you do the same? "

It's not "Adeism" but Atheism. Theists quickly switch to deists whenever they want to make a point. Christians believe Jesus is the son of their God and he came and died on the cross, you don't believe this you ain't a Christian, very specific, if you ask a Hindu they have a total different opinions about God and their own ideas, ask a Muslim they have their own thing going on. Each theist has specific doctrines they follow that they believe their God has set out for them to follow. Atheists are not partial to gods and don't have a problem with some invisible being we may never get to know, the atheist problem is those making the claim to know this being. You will never see a atheist argue with a deist because it is pointless. The deist says I am certain there is a god but we don't know it yet, the theist says I am certain there is a god and it is my god, the atheist totally ignores the deist and gives the theist a funny look so before trying to make a point..... Are you a theist or an atheist because if you are a theist asking atheists deistic questions you will more than likely be ignored and you won't understand why.

+Vini a.k.a SThrill Please stop insisting nonsense about me and the tradition I try to follow. That's a fast way to get blocked. Srila Prabhupada taught we are not Hindu, and I understand it exactly as he says. You can read this for a fair assessment:

Your generalizing me with Abrahamic theists is stupid. I won't tolerate that either. Your whole comment is wrong. WTF.

In a generation where people were more likely to believe anything they asked for evidence and the prophets performed signs and wonders, 2000+ years later a skeptical generation more likely not to believe anything without evidence is demanded to simple believe.

Leaving the gods behind is part of our evolution, it's nothing to be afraid of but to embrace. No the world is not going to go in a frenzy and end up in a state of lawlessness, it is a transitional stage where we break down the walls and join hands and be united. Changes are never easy and it's a huge challenge for the human race as the fear of god will no longer be applicable but the love of life. Morality doesn't come from a book written 2000+ years ago, a lone wolf is vicious and will attack everything that seems like a threat but once part of a pack it will work for the betterment of that pack. It is rational to give create gods in time where knowledge is limited, where schools did not exist, where the most learned had to write their thoughts on stone, where it was constant conflict for land, resources and manpower. Gods did not solve these problems, we went through them as humans and reached where we are as humans, striving, pushing, developing, evolving. No we are not perfect and perfection should not be what we aim for but improvement because as history has showed us aiming for perfection always leads to vast number of bloodshed..... RANT OUT!!!

Many theists claim they talk to God on daily basis, is this true? If it's is then we can very well prove God's existence.
So do theists really talk to God?

+Vini a.k.a SThrill Vini, when I was a theist I talked with God, and God talked back to me, and he guided my actions and arranged the world so it flowed better.

The experience is called "Flow" and the voice of God in my head is simply intrapersonal communication.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_%28psychology%29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intrapersonal_communication

At no stage was the voice actually God, despite my belief for decades that it was. It's when I later questioned "God" that it told me that it was me. LOL

So if a theist has God talking to them, either they're schizophrenic or it's the theist themselves talking to themself.

You can see this in action too. Get a theist who does have God in their heads, insult their god (and remember not the person), and then their voice/god takes over and the theist behaves as the OT God.

+Vini a.k.a SThrill As I said, so many don't even know their 'god' has a name, the name of the god of the jews, christians and muslims is the same, Yahweh or Jehovah ( same name, different language ), once people realize their god is named Yahweh and he's jewish, it sometimes raises other questions in their mind, such as, "How come no one ever told me that before?", "What else have I been misled about?".
            My goal is to make a crack, that's where the light get's in, one crack is usually all it takes.
