What are the contradictions of Christ?
The most illogical part of Christian belief is the idea that Christ dying on the cross allows for God to forgive individual sin. This is troubling on many levels. One must first believe that there is a personage who created us and everything we know. Out of all the other species roaming the planet this exalted being has decided to judge us. This sounds strange to me and causes me to wonder why an all knowing, all loving, eternal being would create spirit children who upon their bodily death he could then judge based on their actions during the short blip of time which they lived. Furthermore, what would this God be teaching his children through his actions? Children are taught that when they do something bad there will be a consequence they must face. Christianity teaches that if you do something wrong there will be no eternal consequence so long as you repent, then Christ takes the consequence for you... How is that justice?? Why would the father of all of our spirits lay out a lesson of irresponsibility such as this?

Richard Dawkins: Why the universe seems so strange
Peter, in the name of philosophical discussion let us assume that your beliefs are correct. Assumption (1) The creator of the universe judges his creations actions during the blip of time in which they are allowed to live. This trial determines if an individual will live in eternal agony or joy, pending judgement. (2) Jesus, the son of the creator of the universe came to earth and lived a perfect life and preached of his fathers plan only to be murdered by some of God's other children. I have a very difficult time understanding how the death of Christ can possibly nullify anyone's sin. I do not believe that the creator of the universe would set this forth as his plan. There is no justice to be found if that were the case. Why would this be the plan of the all knowing, all loving, creator of the universe?

Ursus Wehrli: Tidying up art
Nothing is "out of order". Chaos is the brains inability to perceive the full interconnection of a system. Margaret, I'm having trouble deciphering your comment. Please explain? I'm quite boggled.
