God is Good?

I have had a rough week emotionally and trying to write in my blog is a bit draining for me, so this week I am going to share some of my favorite atheist videos from YouTube and make some comments on each one. I hope to be back to my normal self next week! Each of these videos shows that if you read the bible, and really look into what it says, I hope you come to the conclusion that god is not good or merciful.

This first one is by my favorite YouTube Athiest, The NonStampCollector. This video demonstrates the silliness of Christians telling us that Jesus died for our sins. Is god really merciful?

Here is another of my favorites from the NonStampCollector: This one shows some things that god could have done to help humanity, but didn't. An all knowing, all powerful god really should have thought of these things. :) Very funny! (If you like that kind of humor. I do!)

Another of my favorite Atheist Youtubers is Darkmatter2525. This video gives us an excellent example of how silly it is for christians to believe that all you have to do is say a prayer, believe in god, and you will go to heaven. That kind of thinking offends me. If I belived in heaven, I would rather go somewhere else than share a place with the kinds of intolerant, hypocritical, judgemental chrisitans I live around.

DarkMatter2525 made an excellent point with this video by demonstrating how odd it is that we are expected to accept the "gift" of god killing his son in order to go to heaven.

Finally, TheThinkingAtheist gives us some things to think about with this video about an invisible god.

Update 4/7/2010 After watching more videos on YouTube and hearing from some of you about some YouTube Atheists I missed, I would like to add a video here from an awesome fellow atheist and Floridian (who wishes to leave Florida as much as I do). Angie the anti-theist has a BUNCH of really good videos, but this one goes along with my theme of "God is good?" If you get a chance, you should watch all of her videos! She says it so much better than I can! Plus, how awesome to include a woman YouTube Atheist? Woo hoo!!

Take some time to view all the videos these great YouTube atheists make!
God is not good, not merciful and certainly not here for us when we need him. He does not deserve for you to spend your days praying, worshipping, singing and praising him. Really! What has he done for you lately? Think about it! I think it is time that people are honest with themselves! Stop living with delusions and free yourself from christianity! You will be so glad you did!

  1. I really enjoyed the first video! I will have to watch the rest later. That one, though, really highlighted (for me) some of the flaws I see in Christianity.

  2. Don't forget to check out Philip Huang the Lunar Homosexual Agenda. It is the funniest thing in the world...except religion of course.

  5. I like the one about the red shoes. I could never figure out how someone else dying (ie, Jesus could absolve us from the responsibility of doing something wrong.

    But without faith it is impossible to please him, for anyone who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11: 6)

    Ephesians 5:3-5) 3 But sexual immorality, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be mentioned among you, as becomes saints;
    4 nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not appropriate; but rather giving of thanks.

    5 Know this for sure, that no sexually immoral person, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and God.

    Your Personal Opinion May Have No Bearing
    Whatsoever On Doctrinal Truth...


    Jesus did not accept the opinions of men, as shown in Matthew 16:13-17:
    When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples,
    "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"

    They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

    He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
    Simon Peter said in reply, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God."

    Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father."

    See? His disciples mostly expressed personal opinions, which meant little to Jesus.
    The one exception was Simon Peter, the only one who answered with authorative doctrinal truth.

  12. Micheal,

    Your "personal opinion" and belief in a fictional book mean little to me. Stay off my blog.

  13. Don't let this delusional nut job who can't think for himself upset you.

    L. Ron Hubbard and Douglas Adams have presented just as valid ( and just as crazy)explanations for our existence... so I am proud to say "I DON'T KNOW" and anybody who does say they know... can't think for themselves

  14. "God is not good, not merciful and certainly not here for us when we need him. He does not deserve for you to spend your days praying, worshipping, singing and praising him. Really! What has he done for you lately?"

    Please forgive me for asking this as I hope you do not find it offensive. Are you an atheist (meaning you do not believe in God) or are you just very angry with Him because of your upbringing? Its just seems like you talk about God alot for someone who does not believe.

  15. The fundamentalist Christian God, who is brimming with wrath and demands absolute obedience, is certainly NOT merciful. It's so liberating to be free from such a god and the fear he instills.

  16. • God is good. But by which standard of goodness is He good? From where has that standard originated? If God is the alpha and omega of existence, then that standard can originate from God only. Therefore if God is good, then He is good by His own standard of goodness. But a person, or a being, cannot, and should not, be judged good by his own standard of goodness. This standard must have to be independent of him. Otherwise Hitler will also claim that his action be judged by his own standard. And he will claim that he has done nothing wrong by killing 6 million jews, because he thought it absolutely necessary. So, if God is the alpha and omega of existence, then God cannot be good.
