Many Christians wonder how anyone could doubt the existence of God, but it turns out it's right in the bible.  If you read between the lines, it tells you there's no God…

1)  The bible claims that God sacrificed Jesus for our sins. (John 3:16, Romans 3:25, Ephesians 5:2, Hebrews 9:26)  (This is ignoring Deuteronomy 24:16 and Ezekiel 18:20, which state that everyone is to be responsible for their own transgressions without anyone else dying for their sins, thus undermining the primary basis of Christianity.)

2)  Since Jesus is God (2 Peter 1:1, John 10:30-33, and other verses), premise 1 means that God sacrificed himself.

3)  A sacrifice involves the destruction of the entire being, including the spirit.  This seems intuitively obvious especially for a self-sacrifice, since it's not much of a sacrifice if the martyr is guaranteed an eternity in heaven.  The bible never directly specifies what constitutes a "sacrifice," but it seems to support this intuition.

a)  In the entire bible, only humans are said to have been given immortal souls. (Ecclesiastes 3:11, 12:7, and other verses)

b)  The bible allows animal sacrifice (several passages in Leviticus 1), but it condemns human sacrifice in the same breath as witchcraft, sorcery, fortune telling, and other forms of magic.  (Deuteronomy 18:10-11)

c)  Of all the things the bible forbids, why lump human sacrifice together with magic?  It would require some type of occult power to sacrifice the additional element of the soul.

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
(Matthew 10:28)

Therefore, the bible implicitly defines sacrifice as the destruction of the whole being, including the spirit.

4)  From the above premises, God must have died with no afterlife.

Therefore, according to the bible, God doesn't exist.

When you think about it, this explains so much.  Within the scope of the bible, it tells us why Jesus 2.0 fell somewhat short of godlike omniscience, actually having to ask why anyone would doubt that he's the same person who was just brutally murdered.  (Luke 24:38)  It explains why, aside from the occasional disembodied voice that only believers could hear for some reason, God never appeared or acted after the sacrifice.  In Acts of the Apostles 1-14, angels always acted in God's place.  Is it really more plausible that God still existed, but he was always busy?  He had a little too much on his plate, so he had to delegate?

It also explains some current observations, like the fact that Jesus has never returned as predicted.  It tells why God is credited with all those spectacular, unmistakable miracles in biblical times but has no noticeable effect today.  It even gives us an explanation for ghost sightings: there's nobody to admit them into heaven.

I wish I could say I figured it all out first, but I think Nietzsche beat me to it.  Still, at least I can do my part by spreading the good word.  In fact, since the bible is already famous for being revised and edited throughout history, I'll go ahead and add a new chapter to the bible.  Don't worry, it's only three verses:

:bulletred: There's probably no God. (Dawkins 1:1)
:bulletred: But if there is a higher power worth worshiping, he/she/it/they wouldn't want you to squander your life on fairy tales that don't even have happy endings. (Dawkins 1:2)
:bulletred: So stop reading this and enjoy your life. (Dawkins 1:3)
If Christians can get away with their creative interpretations of the bible, I can do this. Donít worry if my claims donít make sense to you Ė in a religion whose deity sacrifices himself to himself to appease himself, making sense isnít a high priority anyway.

God is 3 spirits in one. One is Jesus, who came down in human form. The human body died but He did not.

Your premise is erroneous because you have added your own definition to the word 'sacrifice'.

You have placed it within the context of a cessation of existence.

One premise of the Bible is that once a being comes into existence, they continue.

Hell does not end conscious thought or state of awareness.  

Jesus said as much with the Lazarus and rich man narrative.

You can choose to trust Dawkins as your source authority for eternity, but I think he's a little light on the subject, not being God and all.

Knght-Zero Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2015
I thank you for your post, it made a short yet interesting Bible study for me.
1. In your Deuteronomy quote, these were the Laws God set before man. If you had read the verses around Deuteronomy 24:16 you would have seen that these were Laws God set before man designating that their sins shall be their own. As for Ezekiel 18:20, it makes claims contrary to what you had just said.
     Ezekiel 18:19-22 "The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will  the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.
21 "But if a wicked man turns away from all the sins he has committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, he will surely live; he will not die. 22 None of the offenses he has committed will be remembered against him. Because of the righteous things he has done, he will live."
     And just cause I spotted this while reading further, Ezekiel 18:32 "For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!"
2. Jesus was perfect and had not sinned. He was the final and true PERFECT sacrifice. Not any man would do, Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." In the old testement they were required to sacrifice the best of their animals or goods as an offering to God to atone for their sins. Another note is that God is a 3 in 1 being, there is God the father, God the son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. Many times in the old Testament he would refer to himself as 'We' as one note supporting this.
3. a.)
3. b.) The sacrifice was a blood offering to the Lord as atonement for their sins. In occult rituals and witchcraft these sacrifices are to the fallen angels who exalt themselves as 'gods' and would be done to attain worldly power or knowledge. There is life in the blood, I believe this life in the blood was what was used to atone for sins and is what the fallen angels long for (The physical/ spiritual ramifications of how this offering works, I believe we will never know on this Earth. All I know is we need not worry any longer about making blood sacrifices to the Lord because Jesus was the perfect sacrifice that defeated sin and death.)
3. c.) That verse, Matthew 10:28, talks of how we are not to be afraid to bring God's Word to others. So, no matter what men may do they cannot destroy your soul. And to be fearful of the one in Hell who can destroy both body and soul is to be fearful for others. Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior need not fear Death or the Devil, but those who have not shall fear what is in Hell. (As you said, interpretation, I believe this comment was to encourage us to bring God's word to others out of fear for them, rather than fear for ourselves.)
4. is a summary.
Note: Dawkins will have to face his own sins if he has not repented and turned away from his sin. While Dawkins may not have directly added to the Bible here is his warning.
    Revelation 22:18-21 "18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
     20He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon."
     Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
     21The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen."
I shall be praying for you and I am glad to see unlike many other posts I have seen of this nature and of Christian nature that most of these comments don't appear to be to violent or verbally abusive.
Knght-Zero Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2015
as for 3. a.) I did not see enough evidence for this to be key in the argument. Humans do have immortal souls, and I believe angels do as they already exist with God in Heaven or had lived in Heaven at one point with the tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge.
Notes of interest by Knght-Zero:
     I'd like to makes some personal options on my views of Ghosts and the less occurring supernatural. While these are interesting topics, this is another one I fear we will never know on this Earth.
I believe that ghosts are the works of demons, either as an attempt to manifest themselves into the real world or to distract men. Most ghost stories I have heard of often are attributed to a traumatic event that happened are extremely powerful emotional states. In a recent story I heard a psychic mentioned something about an imprint of the person there. Based on that comment I believe a part of the person was imprinted there and as such a demon or other spiritual being can use that energy to manifest or act in ways. (As they are demons I believe they will be trying to deceive man.)
     As for my view on the super natural in general, I believe that it would be like thinking about two objects orbiting like a solar system. That spiritual plane (or Heaven) could be viewed as getting farther from Earth and being less actively visible in the world today then. I do believe that if this hypothesis is true that we are seeing more super natural activity picking up again and that when the plane (Heaven) gets closer to Earth again there will be more supernatural events occurring, more deceptions by demons, and ultimately the return of the King, Jesus Christ.

Technically, yes. You can try to interpret it that way.  But like all interpretations, it must be able to withstand the scrutiny and criticism of wiser and better-informed minds.
Bendyi Featured By Owner Edited Jul 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
There is no direct or completely valid proof that God exists, nor that he does not. It's simply that, no proper proof. The bible does not prove the existance of God. It being a book means it was written by people. Only way you would get that proof is going to people that wrote it in the first place and ask them why and how and then investigate yourself.

As for the religion itself, it is just that. One's belief. Nothing more, nothing less.
If you wish to argue that you experienced God in some what or another, you have to understand that word 'experiencing' does not prove existance. A paranoia is an example of that claim. You feel as if being watched, but you're likely not.
'Millions of people believe in it, it was spread by those before them.' And so was folklore, but we don't believe it, do we?

As for other arguements I get from people that I (calmly) talk with about religion, I often get 'But something has to be reason for this' 'Someone must have done this' 'Something must be', and I mostly get it at the point where I THINK (important word) they ran out of arguements, and it really gives me the vibe that Catholic religion (saying Catholic because I didn't talk with other people from other religions so far) is rather based on possibilities than solidities.

I myself am an agnostic, and for now God and Jesus are simply idols that are characterised to define the moral code we people should follow.

If you do wish a discussion with me further (as long as you don't plan on being obnoxious or rude), I enjoy talks like these and I would be glad to have you.

In reading what you have said and the response by deadlynightshade97, I'd like to add a suggestion.  But before I propose a suggestion, I'd like you to know that I am a born-again believer in Christ for almost 40 years and know from experience the reality of God.  As for my suggestion on reading the Bible, I would recommend  reading just the Book of John for a start.  If you remain open, as you seem to be, and let go of any preconceived notions and bad experiences you may have had in the past with those who profess to be Christians, God Himself will show you Himself through Jesus Christ.  Christians are not to do the converting--that is God's job.  Christians are to introduce you to God like introduces one person to another.  Real Christianity is a working relationship with God--not a religion.  And if you have more questions, send notes to either of my sites:  Revival-Tom or reverand-tom.  I'll help as much as I can.  I'm here to help--not condemn or debate.:) (Smile)

You may have heard this before, (and I'm speaking calmly) how can you believe or not believe in something if it never existed in the first place? Yes, you can say that some nut job simply made up a higher being, but if you've read the Bible, there are things that prophets and the disciples of Jesus saw and experienced that not even they could understand or convey to the fullest. No one can simply make up a being like God out of thin air. We cannot even begin to grasp the amount of power or knowledge he holds; take the universe itself for instance. "God stretches out the Heavens like a curtain," and scientists say the universe is constantly expanding, moving and twisting in ways we cannot control, that no other religion (to my knowledge) has ever thought to include. There are parts in the Bible (and I'm speaking loosely, since I am not perfect, and I make mistakes) that say the very Presence of God cannot be seen by even the Angels in Heaven, that Heaven is a place of light that emanates from God himself. The smallest details in the Bible can lead to the greatest of discoveries and inspiration in man that, I believe wholeheartedly, no other religion can accomplish. If you are saying God does not exist, that the Bible is not true, then it's obvious you do not believe, therefore, neither of us can be sure that God exists, but there is a saying I live by. I would rather die believing there is a God, than live believing the opposite, then die and find that there is. I am not trying to sell you a gimmick or an advertisement to become a Christian, and it is said that in days such as these, it would be better to not identify with Christ (as prophesied in the Bible), but I am simply asking you to at least read the Bible. Don't just go online and search for popular Bible verses. Read it for yourself; I challenge you, and this is a reminder to do so more myself, but it won't hurt to read a book. I'm going to say right now, that if you do, you will not understand if fully or right away, as I believe God intended (wants us to think). Look up famous authors and speakers who go in depth on the Word of God (Rabbi Zacharias or Dr. David Jeremiah are two good places to start). I think you'll find a lot of it quite interesting, even if you are not a believer. Again, I challenge you, I urge you to at least try, and decide for yourself whether or not you want to become a Christian. What I've said is only a particle of icing on the cake of what the Bible holds within its pages as the Word of God. I don't know about you, but I find that to be an amazing thing. There my rant is done.
(JK) And another thing: Sometimes I find keeping the Word and God's commandments difficult (which is to be expected, as we are merely human while he is perfect in every respect), but that could be because I was born into a Christian family, while you live a life as a non-believer; most of the best miracles come to those farthest from God. Think about it and see what happens.
Bendyi Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Again, however aggresive or passive-aggresive anything I might say sounds, it is not meant to be.
And I also want to express how I do know what religion is, it's one's choice to believe in something, and I do not wish to take their freedom of doing so, it's all up to you.

How can you believe or not believe in something if it never existed in the first place?
I believe I will get an A tomorrow. I believe I will be the best writer in the world. In other words, I believe in something that didn't already happen, and might actually never happen. Children believe in Santa Claus and other stories, but we say they aren't real. The same children are also taught that religion is real, only thing their parents keep telling them it's real while other stories and fantasies aren't.

'No one can simply make up a being like God out of thin air.'
Honestly you do not know that. Sorry for the comparison as it isn't intended to offend anything, but both God and Jesus could be said to be characters alike Mary Sue, simply perfect. And again, you do not know what people in that age were capable of. Maybe they really just invent God out of thin air, maybe they did not. Both are possibilities, and it doesn't matter which one stands out to be more true, both are possible, both might be what happened, and until there is a proper proof, they will remain and nothing but two possibilities.

'We cannot even begin to grasp the amount of power or knowledge he holds:'
From my perspective, you are assigning something to doesn't have its existance proven. Again, you could be completely right, or you could be false, there has to be someone to prove me that god exists if I'm to believe that claim.

'There are parts in the Bible that say the very Presence of God cannot be seen by even the Angels in Heaven, that Heaven is a place of light that emanates from God himself.'
As I still believe, the Bible could be a real thing and what it contains inside could actually exist, but just as much as it could be work of imagination and art. As for the inspiration and discoveries in Bible, many other things can do that as well, not just books themselves. Every second in life might have the potential of both great inspiration or discovery.

 'If you are saying God does not exist, that the Bible is not true, then it's obvious you do not believe, therefore, neither of us can be sure that God exists, but there is a saying I live by. I would rather die believing there is a God, than live believing the opposite, then die and find that there is.'
True, I very much agree. And in the latter I do see your point. At this stage it is really a matter of personal preferance, do you want to gamble believing in something that may or may not exist? Or do you wish to gamble with it not existing? And as I said, I do not take anyone's freedom away with my claims, you can believe in whatever you want, it's your own decision.

As for the challange I really did think about reading it for myself but I never came to the point where I would actually do it. I will have to read it, sooner or later, but I guess there's no reason to wait.

Thank you for the talk and for being calm.

It may seem that Christians get away from false interpretations, but God has His way with them when they are in the wrong.  But God gets at those who are unbelievers and purposefully misuse the Bible to try and attempt to prove God, the author of the Bible, doesn't exist.  God is right beside you dealing with you.  He didn't sacrifice Himself to appease Himself.  God the Father sacrificed His only Son, Jesus Christ, to appease His Holy and absolute Righteousness so that you could be forgiven of your sins and have a relationship with God.

This man's study has proven the opposite of what he is trying to prove.  According to Romans 1:17-25, it is not so much that he believes that God does not exist, it is more of a matter that he has chosen to not believe that God exists, and therefore his willing rebellion against God has caused him to be callous against the reality of God.  Real Christianity is not a Religion in regards to how Religion is often defined.  Real Christianity is a genuine relationship with God through Jesus Christ; after having realized that one is a sinner before a Holy God, but loves the sinner so much that God sent His Son to die on the Cross for our sins that we might have fellowship with God.  Since God is absolute, it is dangerous to argue with what God says in the Bible about Himself.  Usually such a belief is a result of a bad experience that turns people from God to whatever they are believing in--which is usually themselves.

We can actually know more while we are alive than as dead ones.
Since "matter" does not exist, because it is nothing more than the little we can currently perceive, everything is made up of energy. Energy can be either projected, used and absorbed but is most commonly known for its ability to store information, so we can use/read it to learn about anything. History, crafts, art, events. No matter how much "terrorist" masked American (mostly, cuz they're much more easily brainwashed than most and so dedicated to dying fighuing) soldiers or CIA agents DESTROY history one artifact/statue/tablet at a time.
History is already imprinted in energy for ANYONE to reach it.
Governments have known this for a very long time, that is why "magic" is treated as a grave sin by the church (one of its mass manipulation tools) and Satan and his Demons (that proved to be the ones willing for humans to evolve spiritually) have met nothing but slander and their existance covered with ridicule and lies.

If life is not a divine creation, and unfathomable love truly does not exist, then why would you spend this brief time here on Earth attempting to diminish and unravel the beliefs and doctrines of others? If you are truly refuting a fantastic idea that holds no substance or impresses no altruistic result, then why are you ticking away each key press and breath writing about what you believe about what some other people believe and find significant and lasting spiritual fulfillment in?

What you have presented here appears to me as an elaborate expression of frustration and confusion. Your first statement "Many Christians wonder how anyone could doubt the existence of God" is unfounded. I am a Christian. It is completely fathomable to me that anyone could doubt the existence of God. I lived with a brash, selfish philosophy of atheism for many years of my life, but I have see God's glory now that I've actually looked for it. It is in our very (human) making that we should have the choice to doubt and/or reject all facets of reality, even the supernatural. Who are these Christians you've polled, read, or talked to? Is it Christianity that they profess as they present to you these musings?

It seems like quite a stretch to say that in a human sacrifice, the soul is killed along with the body. How can a human have the power to destroy another human's soul? Sacrifice seems to be more akin to murder, killing a person's body to please a false god. A murdered person is killed only in body, but that does not mean that a violent, sinful act was not committed against them. "Thou shalt not kill."

you really should read "miracles and idolatry" by Voltaire... also the greek metaphysic systems that upset sophist romans so much...

the next thing is... the bible is written by 2 types. There is the sophist type (revisionist, apologetics, forgiveness of others... interesting point, only st paul puts power into forgiveness of others) and those into the eulysian mysteries, which is the greek philosophy of: plotinus, ceres, horace, socrates (historical imperative, forgiveness of self as taught by mark and luke, and the beautiful rosy cross of those that would study teterrima bella causa, as johnathan swift so often says, which basically means christ was as gay as socrates and died for similar reasons)... actually there is a lot of stuff written from the recent past on this subject, but hella little online, so I would also suggest looking up Hobart Mowrer and then buy his books to read the case histories he talked about in the books he published from 1930-1960, and of course ernest jones, who talks clearly about how to make a nazi quizling using repressed sex drives... I do not agree with all the heads I mentioned, but they are all worth reading... `specially if you're tired of histories designed with mass appeal :(

And one last thing. I did a tone poem called "The Old Church." Its based on a john carpenter movie called in the mouth of madness. I hope you dont mind me leaving the link here? would love your comments after listening to the return of the old church :D…

Let me make a note as a non-Christian. 

1.) It is not ignoring, the Jewish law set by God was until his Jesus died. It was only an until.

2.) Jesus is the word in human FORM (this word being important). A sinless being in human form needed to be sacrificed. The body was sacrificed, not God. From here the other points need not be pointed out, nevertheless I shall keep going. 

3.) As you have so kindly stated, the bible (Take note, vaguely insinuated by humans inspired by God, not God himself. We have to remember that the 66 books were compiled as a political move) does not directly state or support it, but does not directly oppose the suggestion or definition. Nothing substantial can be drawn from point 3 in either direction.

4.) Needs no further explanation as it is a summary. 

Here lies no logic, but reasoning. Reasoning susceptible to flaws.  

Maybe I am wrong, maybe we all are. Maybe we should stop devoting our time to attempting to disprove a possible illusion and proceeding to feel good about it. As you have mentioned with the Dawkin quotes. Is this how we enjoy our life? Same can be said to myself.

1. probably (so statistically there is a chance that God does exist; you can't rule it out completely)
2. Nobody wants that, except possibly the devil (if he exists, right?)
3. Good advice. Can you enjoy it completely without feeling at the end of the day...there's still something missing etc.? In my opinion, Life as it is, is basically unsatisfactory. The big problem is: even if you manage to enjoy it 99% of the time, barring some serious scientific breakthroughs to prolong life indefinitely - and then to what purpose?) it ends in death - the cessation of life as we know it. So life is basically absurd. I think only children can enjoy life (provided someone's not harming them etc.)

John 3:16 says that God sacrificed his only begotten son -- not himself -- so that we might have a great afterlife when we die. So, technically, God still exists. And not just in the form of a deity, but in everything we drink, eat, touch, see, and hear as well. Well, people call him "God" to prove a point -- but I call him the Great Creator because, according to this Bible you read, he created humanity, the Earth, the Heavens, and everything else in the universe, hence the aforementioned nickname.

I do have one question, however: is there any other articles of proof (besides the Bible) that show that God doesn't exist? If so, then please enlighten me. And keep in mind that I'm not trying to be mean -- but curious, rather. It's just one of those topics that caught my eye.

Do you even know the context of the passages that you're pointing xD

Don't worry, you can say anything, but without actual study (which is clearly lacking in your case) ... all you are is flapping lips. Therefore you are not very high priority for me either.

So you don't believe energy exists?

For everyone who reads this and other articles like it:
You have a choice to make. You can be swayed by anything that is thrown your way, or you can go figure out both sides personally. I can't force anyone to believe that God does or doesn't exist, so the only thing I can do is show kindness to everyone I see and give them space to make their choice by themselves. Sitting here and arguing about it is pointless since you can't know for sure until your time is up.
I ask for all of you or at leat a few of you to show respect no matter who's side you're on. It would be most appreciated.

Yowzas, this looks like a hot topic.  Honestly, though, this post seems a bit sad. 
Sacrifices destroying immortal souls? 
Man’s soul is immortal, but God’s isn’t? 
Has the subject of the trinity stopped being a subject that causes people’s heads to light on fire? 
And, most importantly of all, it completely demeans what Christ has done for us!  Christ wasn’t some
willy-nilly sacrifice; if He was, He would have never come back as “Jesus 2.0.” Jesus is smart, He knew
that we are incompatible with God, thus God can never have us around Him.  So we need a way to
magically change to be compatible with God and that’s what Jesus does for us, He doesn’t magically
change us into some “super Christian person,”  He makes us acceptable before God.
