Why does God only choose a few of us to save?

I am repeating my answer here from one I gave on Quora To answer the question posed by the title: You haven’t stated your religion, so I’m going to assume that you believe in the type of god from the Abrahamic Tradition, the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God.

Atheist Ethics and Abortion

Heaven – a fatally flawed place

Ignoring the pre-pagan roots of the whole idea of a ‘Heaven’, there are some things in common with most believers’ concepts of what it is, and what’s going to happen there. Invariably: Heaven is a place where the faithful go after they die. It always considered a good place to go. You only go there … Continue reading »

Each religion thinks it owns the truth…

In this era of instant communication, and widespread literacy, each religion still holds that it is the true religion, and that all others have to a greater or lesser extent got it wrong…
The great historian Stephen Henry Roberts (1901-71) put it well when he said, “I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” Continue reading »

Why Doesn’t God fix Bad Teeth?

The question has to be asked – what do the gods-people-worship have against people with bad teeth? Is it a personal vendetta? Do they use bad teeth to punish people? Surely not everyone with bad teeth deserves to be punished? Surely there are some really deserving cases? We can easily think of people we ourselves would help, given the chance. Could a god do less?
