Atheists: When you see a kid dying of leukemia, don't you *know* there is an intelligent designer behind it?

    I always wondered: if disease is a result of sin, what sin did that kid with leukemia commit that warranted that sort of suffering?

    It's hard to accept the validity or appeal of a religion that maintains that people are born with an eternal debt that only the creditor can pay off.

    If you want real answers read the scriptures. If you can't rely on the bible then you can't believe history/ because it is just information passed down from people long ago. Of course if you just don't want some one telling you what to do then it is your choice to act on your own and take the consequences.

    Read the first book of bible and see what started all this sickness, and diseases. GOD didn't want robots loving HIM, HE wanted people to choose HIM, so HE gave us a choice.

    If you want satan as your guide, then you have that right. Follow him and see where it takes you.

    Has anyone read the scriptures for themselves, or are you relying on others for you information about GOD? Read what GOD has done and HIS plan, then things may clear up. Find out about what HE says, then make up your mind. Yes, you have to put forth an effort to find out the truth, but it is worth it. Get facts not heresay.

    lol ... no ... I know there's a bunch of braindead cult zombies who think there's a devine sky fairy creator behind it. If they would stop trying to keep humanities minds in the stone ages of their retarded caveman cult and ever had the strength of character or brains to see what their religious nonsense has done/is. Then humanity may have already cured leukemia by now.

    Xianity has stunted humanities scientific/mental and spiritual growth for 1,000's of years now.

    No no no ... kids, evolution is something the devil came up with to test your faith. God created us all out of dirt. Don't listen to those nasty facts and scientists ... They all work for the devil. In the year 2011 ... there's billions of irrational/deluded zombies. Who still think/believe some undead son of god named jesus, tap danced on water and died for their sins 2,000 yrs ago. .. SAD.

    If there was an intelligent design behind a child dying from leukemia, it's a very sick distorted design.

    Fireball is correct. You really need to educate yourself. The entire theme of the Bible is Satan causing sickness and death to enter the world through the sin of Adam and Eve, and the ransom sacrifice of Jesus that will save us from it.

    The Genesis account teaches that mankind is in a gradual state of degeneration as we get further away from our original perfection. According to the evolution theory, we should be evolving into a better, stronger specie. Of the two, which do we actually see happening?..........Exactly.

    Romans 5:12 "That is why, just as through one man sin entered the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned."

    Anyone who would not help someone in suffering, someone who especially is not very sinful or wicked, is a piece of garbage IMHO.

    And God looks down on those people just as he does on the murderer, adulterer, or most terrible sinner. Because we are all sinners and come short of the Glory of God.

    How he views us, though, is different. There is a N.T. passage that states he is indifferent to us as people. I am most likely taking that out of context, but it is a bit close to what is written.

    What is intelligent in the death of a child. It is sad for the child, and unfortunately the child's gene's meant that she was prone to this illness. It has nothing to do with god or mysterious ways

    It is sad but it is nature, and death is very much a part of life

    I'm not an atheist, but I'll watch all the misconceptions and lies from here.

    Creationists and evolutionists scientific ideas about this do not differ. Mutations and adaptations are testable and replicable. We Creationists reject the origin of the species. Stop misleading people about what we believe.

    Serves him right. It's retroactive punishment for whining so much about having Leukemia.

    the intelligent designer will reconcile you back to himself by laying waste to everything you think anchors you to this world. and anything that you can build as a foundation to make yourself comfortable and secure here.
