Quote# 76212

“Why did God make some people ugly and others good looking? It’s not fair. I find myself looking in the mirror and wondering why I have to be so ugly and have such an ugly body when all my friends are pretty and have nice bodies. Why was God unfair to me like this?

—Erin”


Thank you for your honesty, Erin. I know a lot of teenagers feel the same way you do. You are obviously angry at God because you believe that He has cheated you by not giving you a better face and body.

And because you’ve been honest and direct with me, let me be honest with you—God doesn’t deal with us unfairly. He deals with us only in love. If He dealt with fairness we would never be born. Instead, He would judge us for all the sins He know we will commit. The fact you are alive and healthy means God has been gracious with you.

What a non-answer.

Why didn't you just tell her that God hates her because her parents conceived her in the back seat of a car doing it doggy style? God only loves those people who were conceived missionary style in bed.

A sad line of thinking. This guy is saying God picks and chooses who is born with mental retardation, skin disease, etc.

God has an "Ugly stick"

Get to back of the queue Dawson - you are it!

What an awful thing to tell a teenager. You are socially awkward and 'ugly' because God punished you for things you haven't done and you have no recourse to look at this list or appeal the punishment.

YEah that's what teens want to be told. Thisisi why I am an atheist and an anti-theist. Religion is evil. Period.

Name of the site should be "bullshitanswersthatarecompletelyuseless.net". Yes, she did ask why god was being unfair, but that wasn't her entire question nor was it even the most relevant part. She wants to know why she's ugly. And you telling her all of that useless information about god judging sins isn't helping. Personally, I'd tell her that more than likely she's overreacting and even if she's not there are cheap, safe, effective methods of making oneself look better and increasing confidence. Finally, I'd point out that confidence itself is sexy and that working on her self-image may be a better attractant than all the cosmetics in the world. If you have to include god in there somewhere, well, I don't know, just say he invented all of those things for her to use or something.

You're fuckin' ugly 'cos God is actually being nice to you, you ungrateful bitch. You should be wordshipping Him for even deigning to give you a face.

Which begs the question, why is he more gracious with some than with others? And we're back to square 1.

Next time, Dawson, just admit you don't f***ing know!

"And because you’ve been honest and direct with me, let me be honest with you—God doesn’t deal with us unfairly. He deals with us only in love."

I believe Erin would disagree with you on this point, hence the question.

"If He dealt with fairness we would never be born. Instead, He would judge us for all the sins He know we will commit."

Instead he makes us jump through hoops and play out what amounts to a rather pointless experience so that he can, instead, judge us for all of the things we actually did do and all of the things we didn't do but wanted to and all of the things we were tempted into doing/saying/thinking because of Satan. At least according to people like you.

Care to explain why your deity would do this?

"The fact you are alive and healthy means God has been gracious with you."

That was a fine non-answer you gave there. How about answering the question you were actually asked?

The old "Hey, you're alive, aren't you - stop whining!" argument.

Erin: "So why did God let my house burn down?"

"Thank you for your honesty, Erin. I know a lot of people whose houses have burned down feel the same way you do. You are obviously angry at God because you believe that He has cheated you by not keeping your house safe from fire.

And because you’ve been honest and direct with me, let me be honest with you — God doesn’t deal with us unfairly. He deals with us only in love. If He dealt with fairness we would never be born. Instead, He would judge us for all the sins He knows we will commit. The fact that your garage was left standing and only your mother died in the fire and not you or your sisters means God has been gracious with you."

BTW, how the heck can someone with a brain say "God doesn’t deal with us unfairly" then turn around and say "If He dealt with fairness we would never be born." That's like the kid who says "I didn't hit him; and besides, he hit me first."

—Erin”

Never mind Dawson's bullshit, here's the real answer to your question. Especially keeping in mind Angelina Jolie:



(check one):

[ ] The reason why your God only aesthetically blessed her and not you, is because he's pissed off with you & your fundie ilk, Erin, and now only favours Atheists, Agnostics, Wiccans, Liberals, non-fundie Christians, Muslims etc. PROTIP: Angelina Jolie is an Atheist.

[ ] God doesn't exist. Shit happens anyway. Ergo you - a fundie - are ugly. And Angelina - an Atheist - isn't. QED. Them's the breaks, I'm afraid.

Choose wisely.

Fundy avoids the answer part 3,102,784.

Well there's your problem. God doen't exist therefore he did not make anything, including you.

That is a really worthless god you worship, Mr. McAllister.

The fact you are alive and healthy means God has been gracious with you.

So let me get this straight...

Anyone who is sick or dead it shitouttaluck?

..I just wanna hug that poor girl. Clearly she has self-esteem issues.

Dawson, don't go into counselling, 'kay?

Yeah, look on the bright side Erin. With your looks you won't be tempted by the evils of sexsin. Well, maybe you will, but no guy's going to fuck your ugly ass.
So it's kind of like Gawd is helping you by making you a fat, disgusting cow. In his unending love, of course.
P.S. Erin, you will be tempted to start wearing plaid shirts and getting a short haircut and licking vagina. You must resist this temptation.

Sinning before you are born? That's a neat trick!

... and the fact that you are alive and healthy while being butt-ugly means God needed someone to laugh at, and it's you, honey.

The problem with "ugly" and "beautiful" is that both are relative to the viewer. What one person thinks is ugly, another person might really dig.

Thank you for your honesty, Dawson. I know a lot of teenagers feel the same way you do. You are obviously angry at God because you believe that He has cheated you by not giving you a functioning brain.

Fixed.

Nice avoidance there. If he dealt with fairness, none of us would be punished for things we did not commit. You fail.

I wouldn't put it quite like the fundie does, with all the tripe about original sin and how we don't deserve to be born. But I'd echo at least one of the sentiments - be thankful for what you do have, Erin. You may not be a stunning beauty, but at least you're alive, presumably healthy, well fed and live in relative comfort, with access to education, proper medical treatment and all the rest of it. You've been a hell of a lot luckier than a lot of people in this world, so stop whining about how unfair it all is that your skydaddy didn't give you supermodel looks. Looks are pretty trivial compared to the things that really matter in life.

Here's a piece of advice: Stop giving horrible advice to insecure teens.

This doesn't strike me as particularly fundie-like.

What's so fundie about this? The poster seems to be trying to cheer Erin up...
