My God vs. Your God – Atheist Challenges Believers to Put Up or Shut Up

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.

I agree … i think its time well really see religion work.. shit if some one can show me just a glimer of their belief to be real.. no “god is in your heart” Crap. Real a 100% act of god.. i will follow them.. but as this world has proven over and over From the time we thought the earth was round and the sun was magic and it revoled around us we have proven every religios belife to be wrong.. when will they realise that we as a race were put here to procreate and die… what we do inbetween is our own choice and to stop pushing their beliefs on me..

This is a great idea! I’m all for it. There’s no doubt in my mind that my god, Marduk, will win.

Yes, but their gods have a “plan” so no matter how much they pray, their gods have already decided what will happen.

Great idea I needed a laugh, though I feel it may turn out to be open day for all religious nutters to practice and plan their most nasty magic tricks, there may be carnage as the Hindus may join in and they have many gods thus further escalating the problem!

I’ll be praying to the Unicorn Master to give the holy land to we, the followers of the only true religion, Unicornologism!

I am so sick of them all demanding the right to kill each other in honour of their respective sky fairies, that I am quite numb from the insanity of it all.
