Honestly, believing in a god does NOT increase your chances of redemption, because your chance of redemption with believing a god gives 0/infinity chance of redemption, while believing gives you a 1/infinity chance, and anything over infinity is theoretically zero.
Let's say there is a god, and he, as you say, has the power to decide whether, after a person dies, they get to live happily in heaven or get banished to an eternity of excruciating suffering. If he would decide to send me to hell solely because I don't believe in him, even though I lived a life relatively free of sin filled with helping the less fortunate, then he's just a total dick and I rebuke him for it.
We aren't better. Our intelligence is our downfall. It's only allowed us to kill each other more effectively, fuck each other over in more ways, and wreck everything. We're smart, but obviously not smart enough. Our technology is at a God-like level, but we're still just animals at heart.
And if intelligence was really the deciding factor, then why isn't humanity split up? Why wouldn't it be acceptable for scientists to treat idiots like we treat animals? Hell, people generally think the more athletic people are better than the more intelligent people. We aren't nearly as great as we think we are.
He's not alone.
To end the gay marriage controversy we could give gay couples the same rights as straight couples when they get married except call it marriage because fuck the people who have a problem with that
Im a douchebag but I don't flip my collar up.
How the hell is being a virgin an accomplishment? Sex isn't a great feat of heroism, it's just a personal choice. I totally respect other people's choices and I think abstaining from sex is a very responsible thing to do for many people, especially young people. But most people have sex because they choose to have sex, not because they are to weak to refuse. Not having sex does not make you a better person and it's a really stupid thing to be proud of.
So are 85% of the people of amirite.

If a piece of broccoli was found on a distant planet, scientists would exclaim that we have found life elsewhere in the universe. So why is eating broccoli not murder?
You don't have to be a baker to know a cake tastes like shit.
Yes, let's take pity on the poor slaughterhouse owners that can't afford to keep their animals healthy and in a humane environment. That is a horrible argument. If you can't afford to run a humane slaughterhouse then you shouldn't run one at all.
not me. I only have different moods and different amounts of energy depending on my proximity to cats.
