Now that Israel and Lebanon are in yet another religious war it makes me wonder how do we resolve the “my God is stronger than your God” wars. All I see is Jews, Muslims, and Christians all fighting over who God gave property to. Maybe it’s time to put it to the test. Let us have a contest to resolve the issue once and for all as to what God’s will is.
We will pick a specific day and on that day every religious person in the world will pray at the same time for a miracle that will happen in a specific place at a specific time to get God to reveal who owns the holy lands. God will then create a miracle to indicate the winner who would then get the holy land for all time. If God doesn’t show up however then the holy land would go to the Atheists. So that would give God some incentive to show up, unless God wants the Atheists to win.
As an Atheist I’d be willing to accept the challenge because I have “faith” that we would win. So I say to believers, do you have enough faith to accept this challenge? If not – why not? Let’s put the decision in God’s hands and put an end to religious wars in the Middle East.
PS. If we Realists win then we’ll rename Israel to Is-real.
