1. Christians believe in an interventionalist god

But when you ask why he doesn't intervene when he's really needed, the predictable answer is he works in mysterious ways we can't hope to understand.

That's why it's OK to pray to Jesus for more money.

4. Yes, they do...but that's not what the Prodigal Son depicts and that's Jesus's thumbnail

Sketch of the God System.

5. A starving child will be no less starving if they beg favor from an imaginary entity

The conveniently unverifiable promise of reconciliation in the alleged afterlife is really nothing more than a cheap shell game designed to get people to accept their lot in life rather than rebel against it. The sketch of what Marx describes as "opium of the people" better describes it.

6. So if I turn up and kill your child to teach you a lesson, what will you do?

Build me a church, call the police?

No one deserves to suffer in order to instruct someone else... it is unjust.
