Kizito Mudambo oh dear, I’m not in the In a world full of grandmas be a grammingo shirt. Let’s have some rationality, shall we? The offensive part is when you think that god picks anyone saved this child. But allowed others to die in similar circumstances, why did he/she/it choose one over the others. Many more die by falling from balconies than are saved. Religious people count the hits and ignore the misses. Pointing that simple fact out is simply a conversation starter that will hopefully make some people start to think for themselves, question what they believe, form new opinions, seek truth and evidence. Maybe their faith will be strengthened by the evidence they find and maybe they will find that none of it makes sense anymore. It’s just a conversation everyone should have. Be rational. What evidence do you have? Can you believe what you were taught as a child?

Martin Woods, you can’t start a conversation on an In a world full of grandmas be a grammingo shirt. You’ve already assumed that those who believe in God haven’t already had these conversations and explored evidenced-based beliefs vs belief in God. You said “maybe their faith will be strengthened”, who’s to say that that’s not the case when people choose to thank God? You also mentioned in one of your earlier statements something about having a different point of view and people respecting that. What then gives you the authority to negate other’s points of view? Your statements are a bit contradictory. It seems you’ve assumed that religious people haven’t done the work to get to where they are, just as you’ve done to get to your beliefs. You’re assuming that they only go off of what they’ve been taught. Again, how do you know people haven’t had these conversations and done their own searching and landed on the faith route and have had their faith strengthened just as you have landed on the evidenced-based route?
