Let's Settle this once and for all

Now that Israel and Lebanon are in yet another religious war it makes me wonder how we can resolve the "my God is stronger than your God" wars. All I see is Jews, Muslims, and Christians all fighting over who God gave property to. Maybe it's time to put it to the test. Let us have a contest to resolve the issue once and for all as to what God's will is.

We will pick a specific day and on that day every religious person in the world will pray at the same time for a miracle that will happen in a specific place at a specific time to get God to reveal who owns the holy lands. God will then create a miracle to indicate the winner who would then get the holy land for all time.

If God doesn't show up, then the holy land would go to the Atheists. That would give God some incentive to show up, unless God wants the Atheists to win.

As an Atheist I'd be willing to accept the challenge because I have "faith" that we would win. So I say to believers, do you have enough faith to accept this challenge? If not - why not? Let's put the decision in God's hands and put an end to religious wars in the Middle East.

PS. If we Realists win then we'll rename Israel to Is-real.

Didn't the Jews already play the "my god has a bigger miracle dick than your god" game against the priests of Baal?

Why don't the Jews, Christians, Muslims and Athiests stand in a circle around God and then see who he comes to when we shout his name.

I'd have to blame war on the base desires of human beings.
It's ironic that most wars evoke a higher power, but would a higher power, a higher energy, cause so much friction and pain? Even thoughts of love and peace calm blood pressure. Anger and vengeance are lower energies. I just don't think war is God's territory. We act like cocks and then blame God? We refer to man-written, man-sanctioned books, point to this scripture and that, to justify our base human desires. What the fuck kind of rat's nest of fucked up ideology is that?
Man's biggest excuse for killing is "in the name of God." Why? Because that is their best defense. "God told me to do it."

Well then, pal, your god sucks ass. Hate to break it to you.

I push all responsibility on how to get along with one another ON one another.

Atheists understand this with greater clarity.

Let's see.... Supposedly, a given Deity created us in His/Her image.
Therefore following said logic, said Deity is a vicious life sucking bitch from which there is no escape as said Deity constantly and consistently pushes us to destroy each other in a selfish need to prove that it's all about...said Deity!

Yep. Working out so far.
Or... humanity has created a Deity that is based off of humanity and still keeps said Deity around to prove to it's collective consciousness that it needs a big brother to whine to when no one else will listen.

Therefore, either way. It sounds more like it's about out of control ego rather than any real faith. (Time to replace egotistical leaders!)
