Chad? France? Your inability to even spot some literature explains your close-mindedness. Nigeria is also ashamd of you anyway.

Pathetic Beninoise.

When I say that there is no go, I am talking about the gods of man made religions. . . .Could there be something that created the universe which could be called a god? I believe that is very possible. . . .Could that thing be Allah, Yahweh, Jesus, Vishnu, Sango and all the other gods of man made religions? The answer is NO. . .Because all the gods that men worship were created by men and there is evidence for that every where. . .Non of such gods can be shown to exists on its own independent of the stories men wrote or are still writing about them, man's cultural and societal influence and acceptance and man's endless special pleadings on behalf of the various gods they worship. . . .No of the gods of man made religions is self evident at all and non of them ever does any thing on its own. . . . .No body has the answers to everything, people just love pretending that they do. . . .Even the gods of man made religions do not have answers to anything reason is because they were created by men they all carry along the ignorance of the men that created them there is evidence for that in the various religious books that men claim to be the words or revelations of their various gods. . . .

Whats ur proof that they never met jesus and wrote about Him?

kindly prove to me that what they wrote was wrong

No one has seen God but many parts of the scriptures some which i quoted shows what god looks like.Jesus came from God and told us what god looks like. That hes a man, thats y jesus refers to him as Father not mother or woman

Yes they really look nice. Who made them? the same sperm ?

Accepted. Who inserted the sperm into mens scortum? Science, nature or God?

If you read the gospels you will see for yourself that non of the writers ever wrote that they ever meet Jesus and that they were his desciples. . . .You just have UNKNOWN writers writing about some alleged events they believed happend long ago. . . .NON of them even writes that he knows Jesus or has ever meet him in any of the gospels. . . . 

What do you mean by what they wrote was wrong?. . . .Your evidence to show that god wrote the bible is what?. . . .You have no evidence for that do you? All you have are the writings of men who said that god tolf them to write. . . . Some of them did not even say that god told them to write any thing they just wrote down stuffs that were later claimed by others who lived long after them to be inspired by a god. . . .

Again you are quoting from the bible as if the writings of the bible are facts, the writings of the bible are not facts but are based on beliefs. . . .Your evidence that Jesus looks like god is what?. . . .Have you ever seen any man called Jesus? Have you ever seen any god deity? Are all your beliefs not based on the traditions and stories told by other men? Men whom you have never seen or known?. . . . .

I don't know. . . .Its better to say you don't know than pretend you do when in reality you DON"T. . . . . .

Science does not put things any where, Saying that nature did it is no different from saying that god did it cos it explains nothing. . . .No god has been shown to put any spermatozoa in any part of the human body. . . .I don't know is my personal answer and I am very OK with it. . . . .

No, People who never meet Jesus wrote very long after he died that he said those things. . . .The gospel of John was written very long about 70 years after Jesus died not by John the alleged desciple of Jesus but by a person whose Identity remains UNKNOWN till this day. . . . .It was much later that the document was tittled the gospel of John. The title, the gospel "According to John," was later attached when the four Gospels were gathered together and began to circulate as one collection.

NO. . . .no god said let us make man in our own image. . . .Men wrote that about their god. . . . .You don't have any god saying or writing anything all you have are men writing down things about their various gods. . . .

You don't know if any god looks like Humans, you only believe what other men have written about a particular god and they juust happen to say that their god looks like humans. . . .Have you ever seen such a god?. . . . . .

All animals look normal and nice to me. . . . .NO I do not look like any god because there are so many gods that humans have invented and humans have been worshiping. . . . .No body looks like any god because no god has been ever shown to exists on its own. . .maybe when you point to the existence of any god that is independent of human stories, mytholgies, cultural influence and acceptance then we might really consider your proposal. . . .

Ohh really? So asteriods, comets etc that strike against the planets and cause havoc are part of your gods desires eh?. . .Interesting. . . .

My parent had sex and I was born. . . . .That was how I was made. . . .That was how you were made too. . . . .sperm fertilized and ovum and I was formed out of that unicelullar fusion. . . . .

No. I don't know of any. . . . .

Jesus was Gods incarnate and jesus said in John14 HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER(GOD). Also in Gen 1:26 God said let us make man in our own image. So with these, i know God looks like us Human being since were formed in his own image. If God wanted he would have made us look like animals but he didnt. He made us normal and we look nice. Im sure u look nice as well. So u look like God. This ans ur question on what god looks like.

God is perfect thats y he made moon sun stars diff from man and the work according to gods desire

2 questions for u

Who made u? Do u think u came into being by ur powers or knowledge?

Do u know that theres a supreme being that controls what happens in the world?

WRONG. . . no god has spoken to you, all you have is what other people wrote about the various gods they imagined and nothing more. . . .so you believe in god not because god is self evident but because you don't know how natural phenomena like sun, moon, snow, rain etc came about? I thought you said that you know who your god is?. . . . .You know for sure how the sun, moon, rain, and snow looks like. . .Can you tell us how your god looks like?

How do you know this god? Have you ever seen, touched, heard from or had a conversation with it? What does it look like? Did it personally tell you that it created the earth and the universe?

All believers say that you do not have to understand. The way of the gods is beyond human understanding, they say.

All you have to do is obey the leaders. There is a church in London which says that individualism is not encouraged. They want complete obedience to the elders.

I guess that individuals ask awkward questions and may want to understand. This cannot be allowed, surely.

As if you and your fellow islamic brothers have any idea of the imaginary arabic idol you worship and kill people in its name. . . .

I guess that is what worshiping is all about.Just adulate, idolise, praise and shut up.Don't be curious, don't question,  don't even try to understand, just worship the hell out of whatever god you are unfortunate enough to be tied up with and your life , including your afterlife , will be as sweet as honey.

That works for a lot of people.
