Are those the only two options? Either "perfectly righteous" or depravity?You think you are perfectly righteous?
Is this normal for atheists to believe themselves to be righteous?
Which are you? How about your wife? Your kids? Are they "perfectly righteous" or depraved?
To answer your question, I do not consider myself to be either depraved nor perfectly righteous. Further, I am pretty sure you and your family are the same. It is normal for atheists to think the vast majority of people are not depraved and also are not perfectly righteous.
And there you go with the insult, making out that I am stupid. At least this time you have the decency to stop pretending you are not doing it.ugh, ugh, god sulks 6000 years, ugh ugh
You could try addressing the point. Fundamental Christianity claims all the suffering in the world is due to the fall, which in turn is due to God choosing to punish Adam for a single act of disobedience. You do not like me characterising it as "sulking"? How about throwing a temper tantrum?
I cannot see how you can look at it any other way. If kids die of cancer today because God got angry at Adam 6000 years ago, that is a very petty - and frankly nasty - God.
And the point here is not that God should do as I say, but that a petty, nasty God is the exact opposite of what Christians, including you a few posts back, say when they claim "God is Love".
Of course not!I didn't even bother to read the rest
Christianity has no answer, so Christians do the only thing they can. Ignore it, and hope it will go away.
If that works for you, then great. But for every non-Christian everywhere we can see the huge contradiction inherent in your religion, and to us it just looks like incoherent nonsense.
