Christians win the baby lottery

Share |
Here is a case of an American baby who was kidnapped from Harlem Hospital 19 days after birth. The child was raised by a drug addict, and eventually was reunited with her real parents. In the video you will see her aunt praising Jesus for reuniting them with their family member after '23 years'. That is right...after being kidnapped for 23 years they appreciate the lords work. Go figure.
This supreme God who has the ultimate responsibility in terms of moral agency, turns a blind eye to an innocent child just 19 days old. Yep, oh lordie, he really does work in mysterious ways.
Why 23 years? Why not her 21st birthday. We will never know because there is no logic to it. No intelligibility. We have to repudiate all our logical knowledge...put that aside, and just blindly accept.
But we learn something more about Christians here because how can you be thankful for the return of a child, and 'blank out' the 23 years the child was missing, not to mention the actual abduction, which god must also accept responsibility for. He is even more responsible than the hospital because they just have lax security. God has perfect knowledge, and yet he did nothing. Shame! Shame! Shame! How does a Christian explain that.. Blank out. That is why religion leads to psychological repression. You know this by talking to them. I debate them often when they come to my door. Blank out to any philosophical arguments. "I don't know" they say..."Its a good point" they say....but contradictions are just discarded like confetti.

Attention all atheists!!
In fact anyone who has had an interesting encounter with a Christian which involved manipulation, deception or blatant rationalisation. This is research or material for a forthcoming book. I am not suggesting that all Christians are criminals, dangerous or threats to society, but I am suggesting that Christianity is a basis for moral inefficacy. There is a reason why Christian nations are always at war. There is a reason why former Christians (or children of Christians) have a tendency to drift into cults and extreme religious groups. Thank you for any life experiences you can recall. ----------------------------------------------- Andrew Sheldon
