Good for you for proudly standing up for Israel, Sarah. I think many Jews feel like it’s a bit too selfish to defend Israel and they feel guilty about it. Doubly because Israel is so much stronger than the Palestinians. I’d shy away from ‘democracy’ and emphasize the freedom vs tyranny in the argument. After all wasn’t Hamas elected?

And I think you are right to emphasize the freedom/civilization of Israel vs. the Palestinians. Making this religious – Jews vs. Muslims – would be fatal. It would turn it into two equally irrational religions slaughtering each other, neither able to prove the other wrong.

Dear Dan,
Yeah, I think you’re right, since so many Jews tend to root for the underdog in general…on the other hand, isn’t Judaism, in sheer numbers, the underdog to Islam? Yep. Will we ever catch up? Nope.
Some very tasteful person on that Amazon discussion said that Jews were cheering on Sept. 11th, an accusation I heard since that day. Even worse, I hear people accuse Jews of being in on the conspiracy. I reminded him that the US has no greater ally than Israel.
I’m not certain, once you scratch this enough, to what degree religion is a factor. Clearly, I’m not an expert, but I bet the experts disagree on this all the time, anyway. I talked to my Mom about this. “What do the Palestinians *really* want?”

Yeah Sarah I have not heard anything about Jews cheering on 9/11, until I hear otherwise that’s just an arbitrary assertion to be dismissed. We DO have video of Palestinians cheering, there’s no question about that.

A couple of the historians I follow point to 1968 and Israel’s victory as the key time when Israel went from being the supported underdog in the Middle East to being the regionally dominant power. And with this ‘root for the underdog’ ideology – i.e. sacrifice for the needy – first the intellectuals and then later more of the public began to turn against Israel and support the Palestinians.

Hey have you seen this channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Anochi ? Lot of moral defense of Israel stuff. I assume his website is good too but it’s ALL Hebrew, I can’t read a word of it! 🙂

hi,

I watched your video wondering how you and your actors came to the conclusions that there is no GOD. What scientific proof do you have that there is no GOD as their is no scientific proof that there is a GOD?

Is it silly for me to believe there is an Author/Creator of life? Or is it even sillier for me to believe that a Big Bang is responsible for producing what we know as life today?

Now let’s put this into perspective. If I died, believing in GOD all my life according to a Godly standard, to find out that there is no GOD, what do I lose? What would you lose if there is a God?

Because there is no proof either way, it is very foolish for Atheist to make such bold statements about the existence of GOD.

Dan,

The youtube content you present is very bias. Those people are making statements and not debating the issue. Oh I forgot it’s a no no to question the Morality of an Aparthied Government.

If you want to know the root of Israel, read some unbais facts: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2006/feb/07/southafrica.israel

Dear BFBF,
This is a free-speech zone. I chose to approve your comments; I didn’t have to. I thank you for checking out my site.
I made the video just for fun. I can’t prove, nor can anyone, that there is no God, just as no one can say with certainty that there is no Zeus, Ra, Amaterasu, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Quetzelcotl (I’m sure I misspelled that), Horus, Thor, and, well, you get the idea. How are you so sure there is a god, and if so, which one(s)?
Also, you’re using Pascal’s wager, which is just childish. Do you think you are tricking your God into thinking you are believing in him/her/it just because you’re afraid not to?
BFBF, think of what it’s like to be Israel. While you’re at it, think of what it’s like to be Jewish anywhere. Unless you are Jewish. I’m guessing you’re not.

Sarah, I choose to believe in Jesus Christ based on my studies and Research because it works for me. I’m not one of those Christians that go around condeming people to hell because they dont’ believe. I will contest for my faith, but anyone can believe what they want. I follow what paul has said about those that don’t believe… God will judge them, not us…. but those that call themselves Christian and “do” contrary to the doctrine, them we judge.

Now concerning Israel. I’m a BLACK MAN, and I do not have to think about Jewish People more than any other group of people. Jewish people have not suffered more than any other group of people on the planet, and there is nothing that makes you special, nothing! Did you know that it was Zionist Rabbis that promted the Hammitic myth about Black people. I know what it’s like in Palestine, the same as it was in South Africa!

Thanks for letting me post!

Sarah,

I want to make you aware of a book being translated in english, that was written by a Jewish History Professor & Scholar Shlomo Zand of Tel Aviv University in Israel entitled “When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?”

After 19 weeks on the Israeli best-seller list, the book is being translated into a dozen languages and will be published in the United States this year by Verso. I contacted this publisher last year and he is very excited by the response in Israel and France. There has been no debate about the facts of the book, which tells (along with it selling in Israel) that it’s undisputable. From what I read the scholarship is flawless. For example he proves that there was no Dispora in 70 A.D., because history proves that Romans never expelled a people from the lands it conquered. Furthermore, there is no documentation to prove this dispora. As a Christian I never beleived in it because the bible was very clear. The return to Israel was fulfilled during Ezra. He also points out that this Dispora “was a relatively recent invention, hatched in the 19th century by Zionist scholars and advanced by the Israeli academic establishment”. Wow!

The truth can only be hidden for a short time.

Dear BFBF,
This is veering too far away from the purpose of the site, the personal stories of atheists. There are plenty of blogs/websites that deal with these issues and I want to maintain the integrity of this one, lest it lose its uniqueness.
Since you mentioned Israel, I recommend a book I just read. The Case for Israel, by Alan Dershowitz.
Happy Darwin Day!

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
