They're not evil people, they honestly thought they were doing the best for their son. They are retarded as all ****, but they don't need to be sent to prison.

It was the smart decision, really. If they put them in jail, every other christian that believes in this kind of thing would riot.

Because it's horribly immoral. It'd be letting two willing murderers go because you don't have the balls to deal with the backlash.

Again. Let them riot. It's better for them to be shot or sent to jail than it is to give them the opportunity to pass their stupidity onto another generation, thus endangering other people's lives in doing so.

That's just justice. They did the crime, they should of paid the time.

All I did was ask if he actually feels that when a doctor saves a life, the life saved should be credited to God.

It's not some far fetched misinterpretation, it's a completely logical question to ask in relation to what he said.

We believe that

>God Created the world (including Humans and chemicals)
>God Gave humans brains, and humans used their brains
>Humans create Medicine
>Humans make hospitals

So yes, God should be thanked, im not saying the doctors shouldn't be thanked.
In my country, sometimes the doctor would refuse to be thanked, before the patient thanks God first, that happened to me personally.

I don't want to get to "Why God creates bad things?" 'cause it's too complicated, and because you probably wont be convinced by my opinion, and I probably wont be convinced by yours, it doesn't mean that you're stupid, or I am stupid.
it just means that we disagree, that's all, (I'm also too lazy to have a debate)

I'm not sure what to say... It's... Just so ridiculous... Sorry, but you're like... borderline insane.

I saved a guy from having his brains smeared on the sidewalk once because I caught him after remembering how extremely slippery the ice was... So what you're saying is... That was really just God who should be thanked and I'm just a douche for not sharing the credit? I mean I completely deny his existence, and even if his existence was revealed I would still deny his authority. Whatever I do, I'm forced to have this leach on my back that wants worship and gratitude for doing nothing even I wish nothing to do with him.

All you said still leads to another problem... Is God a racist?

If he saves people through hospitals and medicine...
And Zimbabwe and Ethiopia aren't really known for their advancement in healthcare... despite the fact like more than 95% are deeply religious.

Whilst Scandinavia, the most atheistic countries in the world.. are also those with the best healthcare. So... God likes atheist and hates black people... sounds like he's the internet.

Its like you are completely ignoring everything he says in return for blantant hatred. I'm completely athiest and people like you make me wish the world was lit on fire. I know I'm feeding the troll but seriously listen the **** up son.

He is saying God should be thanked for giving us the tools and the doctors to help the people.

Doctors should be thanked as well for actualy using the tools given to them, like the mind and medicines, to heal the people.

As for your second question... god works in mysterious ways, etc etc..

For you'r second question, A man once said "God loves a Scientist (The Arabic Word for scientist is Aalim, A man of ilm, and ilm means Knowledge not just science, Complicated I know but basicly Scientist in arabic can also mean doctors, engineers etc,) more than a worshiper, And God would reward a Scientist more than he would a worshipper"
And thats because a worshipper only helps himself while a scientist helps thousands of people, So these countries in Scandanavia (Even in europe, america, japan etc,)
Have better lifes, because they are smarter, or, they use the tools God gave them in better ways.

Religious people believe that since people were created by god, anything these people build or do is an indirect act of god. It's ******* stupid.

I cannot wait until all this **** dies out and people start thinking clearly for once. Imagine the feats we can accomplish and the medical/technological milestones we can achieve if we had less dumbasses and more intelligent people.

Much indeed, I think religious people are under the delusion that the ''atheist community'' will be happy when we destroy the reputation of Jesus...

This is ridiculous, there's a whole different agenda here... I don't know about you, but I'm fighting for world where intelligence and science is a bit more valued, I wish for technological, philosophical and scientific advancement and a global civilization of prosperity.

I really wanna see a mammoth before I die, and I have this gut feeling that praying won't make my wish come true... Science made a 15 year out in the future promise after exactly explaining how they'd do it... To me this seem much more promising.

Parents; "God, why did you not save our son??"

God; "Are you ******* kidding me, I put a hospital 5 minutes away from your home... With great doctors and nurses... what more do you need?!"

Just saying, what if there is a god. And his intention is to cure us and look after us with modern medicine... Why does everyone assume he would want things to stay the same as they were 2000 years ago??

Agnostic here as well and I have read enough of the bible to understands that some lessons are to have faith in your fellow man. If nobody else can help you then its time to pray to whoever and ignoring others and their offers of help is not gonna get us anywhere in the world.
