      A doctrine that tells us that even infants are wicked and filled with sin... Now THAT's evil. It's a horrible little doctrine written by horrible little iron age men.

It would depend on the kind of god we're talking about. A god who just started the universe then just sat back and let it unfold, well, no evidence either way.

But Christians believe in an intercessionary god. One who affects things. So even if we can't analyse him directly, then we should be able to measure the effects he's having. But when we do that...nada. Nothing.

Prayer doesn't work (and may even be marginally detrimental), faith healing doesn't work, and miracles don't happen.

So yes, science can actually say A LOT about the Christian god.

    Ehhh...Agree men have surely messed with it. Not sure just because whats in the books means the writers were homophobes...there is a lot more to whoever they were than just that. That's too easy a label. Those using anything in it to hurt gay people...those are the homophobes.


Leviticus 20:13 "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."

A horrible text designed specifically to have gay people not only hurt, but murdered. I don't think it's a stretch to call whoever wrote those words homophobic.
