How Christians View the World vs How Atheists View the World

If I was handed a penny every time I hear ‘God is good all the time!’, I would probably have enough money to purchase one of those fancy WordPress themes.

The same goes for those that compare earth to a building with running water, elevators and automatic doors… Such a building cannot be made from let’s say, an explosion… So how can earth?

  
My featured image above (courtesy of Eutah Mizishima) paints a picture of serenity and beauty. Peace in a land where nature thrives. A beautiful photo.

This is how creationists see the world as a whole. And this couldn’t be more wrong.

Instead of finding images of past disasters, below shows the world as it currently is at the time I post this. 

Here is footage of a car escaping the wildfires in California. 

Hell on Earth, right?!

What do they all have in common? These are Christian countries affected, around the Christmas period. So at a time when God sees a peak in prayer and church attendance, it seems the right time to ruin lives. Where is the logic in this? And where is this perfect world in which we apparantly live in?

I’m not a pessimist at all, I just like clear thinking.

  1. I am near but not too close to the area of the tornadoes. Lots of nasty wind last night and rain too. Still not over. I don’t blame any god for it or give any god credit for the beautiful weather in your first picture. It is what it is and glad for the science that can predict the weather. 🙂

    • I understand that not all Christians are creationists, nor do all theists view the world as perfect. My post is aimed at the ones that do. ‘How could this Earth have been formed without a creator?!’ Well, I would be surprised if it was with all of its flaws.
      I also disagree with the idea that the world is imperfect due to our sins, which is for another post entirely 🙂
      Sorry for the misunderstanding!
