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 making a stone that cannot be lifted by God
 
Religion agrees that nothing comes from nothing but argues that God is able to bring something without using anything to bring it from. That is a pile of contradictions.
 
What if you say God cannot make a stone that is too heavy for God to lift? If he can make the stone he can lift it. But what we say he cannot lift it? We have a stone that is lifted and not-lifted at the same time - an impossibility.

 

Would one say that this is a physical rule? No - a stone that is lifted though it can't be lifted is impossible. An existing thing cannot be a contradiction. A physical thing becoming nothing is a contradiction as well. If this is possible so is the other. If nothing can be turned into something is possible then the stone that is lifted though it is too heavy to lift can exist. The stone being lifted means the stone must exist. The stone not being able to be lifted means the stone is nothing. So we still have the something/nothing contradiction. To have something being nothing and something at the same time is just as contradictory as having nothing becoming something or something becoming nothing. Creation out of nothing implies that a stone can't be lifted because there is nothing to make the stone from and then it says there is a stone to lift so its all incoherence.
 
It is mathematics that dictate that a stone that cannot be lifted cannot be lifted. Maths tells us what is a contradiction. 0 does not make 1. One is totally different from the other. 0 becoming 1 even by the power of God is a contradiction.

 

Here is a good variant of the question, "Can God make a stone that is too heavy for him to lift?"  Here it is, "Is God able to make a good so great that he cannot do it?"  Good would be greater than God if he can.  Hypothetically, if God cannot do it then we should wish he could.  Thus we should NEED AND WANT good to be stronger than him.  Thus we prove that the argument that God and the reasons for being moral go together is false and by moral it means a fake morality.
