Ridiculous Questions

I think people should always ask questions, because even stupid questions have answers. When you’ve been blogging about atheism as long as I have, you get a lot of the same questions. Since I know some Christians read SE, I figured I’d ask these questions, only turned around. So, I present to you, questions for Christians based on stupid questions Christians ask about atheism:

1. If God made man from dirt, why is there still dirt?
[From, “If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?”]

2. What caused God?
[From, “What caused the big bang/universe/singularity/etc.?]

3. Since the Bible contains conflicting concepts of morality, how do you know right from wrong?
[From, “How do you tell right from wrong without the Bible?”]

4. Can you prove there is a God?
[From, “Can you prove there is not a god?”]

5. What makes you think you’re right?
[From, “What if you’re wrong?”]

6. Why do Christians divorce?
[From, “Why would atheists get married?”]

7. What’s keeping you from eating babies, since you can just ask for forgiveness?
[From, “What’s keeping you from eating babies, since you don’t believe in morality?”]

  1. Number 3 is interesting. I've never understood the idea that morality comes from God. Even if true, it doesn't help you determine right from wrong, for unless God speaks to you directly, how do you know his will? Not to mention the whole Euthyphro dilemma.

    Besides, the Bible has no real concept of morality to begin with, and Christians (and those of other faiths) are actually more subjective in their moral judgments than an atheist who uses reason and the facts of reality to determine values and right from wrong.
