Your god is a master abortionist

I have found out over the last year or so that at least 3 of my friends have had miscarriages.  Why did your god give my friends abortions against their will?  Why is your god the world's busiest abortion doctor?  Is that morally correct?  Should you blow up his clinic?

An answer containing the phrase, "mysterious ways", will not be acceptable.

All i know is, every time a guy masturbates, he is technically aborting millions of kids.

According to the more fundamental religions.

Jim, the title was "master abortionist", not "masturbationist".

Jim, wankers are pathetic but also... homicidal? how dare you... I mean... how horrible!

So, technically menstruation amounts to a monthly abortion.

I figure in order not to sin, all sperm should fertilize every available egg. But that doesn't add up. Why did a perfect god create us to have the same reproductive systems as other mammals if he wanted us to procreate without wasting "seed" or having miscarriages?

Why?

Sorry Admin, but this is truly "mysterious" hehehe

Just to supplement your point, speaking as a medical student, miscarriages are maybe as common as successful pregnancies. Most women probably aren't even aware they are pregnant before miscarriage occurs. And nevermind the number of stillborn births, serious and fatal complications, and what not else that goes wrong. I've definitely seen freaky stuff.

Funny...I tried this tack with a group protesting a local abortion clinic. I made a sign with statistics comparing spontanaeous abortions to abortions performed in a clinic. I was promptly told that it wasn't the same thing and that I was just be a jerk...it was fun for a couple of hours until I got bored.

They aren't spontaneous, they're caused by their god. It's killing those babies!

I would actually open this up and make it bigger than the abortion issue. What we're really asking here is "How can God allow there to be death?" The answer to that will at least include what your trying to find out here.

Originally, death was not in God's plan for the world. After The Fall, with Adam and Eve, death was introduced. This included war, disease, famine, and miscarriages.

Sometimes, these tragic events can be used to fulfill a greater purpose, as you alluded to with your proscription on "mysterious ways." However, most deaths probably do not fulfill a greater purpose here on Earth. Death is an unfortunate fact, and that's why we should look to Christ for a security that cannot be taken away by a whim of fate.

No, that's not at all what I'm looking for. I want to know why it's OK for your god to abort fetuses from people who want them, but not for us to abort them from people who don't.

"Originally, death was not in God's plan for the world. After The Fall, with Adam and Eve, death was introduced."

Fundy alert! You're a fucking idiot if you believe that. Evidence disproves those stories. Sorry. You therefore cannot use it in debate.

"...and that's why we should look to Christ for a security that cannot be taken away by a whim of fate."

Translation: "I'm too weak to face reality, and I need to believe in magic to get me through my life."

So, let me get this straight. Before the "Fall", none of the food Adam and Eve ate was dead? The fruits they plucked from the trees would have never spoiled and gone rotten? If they ate meat, the animal was still alive even after they cooked it, carved it, and chewed and swallowed it? That food was still alive after they digested it?

There was no death at all? Or just for humans? Is it because we are so superior to everything else?

So there was no entropy? Adam and Eve would have lived forever? No matter what? Then why create food? Why would they need to eat? Or drink? Or sleep? Or do anything at all? They could have literally crawled into a cave, sealed it shut, and been fine for all eternity.

It's amazing that your god is all powerful, all knowing and infallible, and yet he didn't know that a snake was getting one over on Eve.

A woman, who, by the way, had no reason to ever eat anything ever.

Or maybe it's all just a bunch of bullshit made up by some guys trying to swindle a large group of people out of money.
