Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


God hides and then does miracles to show us his presence - how logical!

Science sees a universe that does not look like it needs a God to make and sustain it. If God hides, then miracles must be hoaxes or untrue. Why hide and then do miracles? Miracle claims are accusing God of being a ridiculous entity. Science certainly shows that God, if he exists, has no right to expect us to believe. It is unfair and manipulative and bigoted of religion to make it a requirement for us to believe miracles.

Christians say we damaged ourselves by cutting off from God and thus we have damaged cognitive powers and our reason is impaired.  If that is true then God has to work hard to be shown to be real.  We know by gut instinct that we do not see God and the problem is not our rational cognitive powers.
