Except that's a different argument. I'm having difficulty getting you to stay with one thing, and you instead seem to prefer taking potshots at whatever I posted last. Your latest post just gave the blatant assertion that there was no God, when previously we'd been discussing that given the assumption there was a God then you felt that the Bible resulted in a self-contradiction with the concept of "the elect" and Calvin's views on predestination (which it should be noted that the Catholic and Orthodox Churches explicitly rejects, as do a small number of Protestant denominations).The argument is easy to understand. We have free will naturally. Not because a non existent God grants it. Being granted free will by another being is, necessarily, a contradiction in logic.
On the existence of God, I feel it's a workable hypothesis that has yet to be disproven and I'm more than happy to consider arguments against it that are more than "you can't prove it, therefore it's false".
Oddly, on Calvinism, my parents (Dad is a Presbyterian minister) told me two nights ago that they'd "discovered" that the Bible said they were pre-chosen by God and how wonderful it was not to be responsible for stuff. That shit scares the crap out of me, and frankly makes me very sad for them. The ultimate logical conclusion of that sort of argument is life is pointless and we're all just awesome marionettes so hedonism is really the best option given nothing you do changes whether you're one of "the elect". I can't buy into any religion like that, ever.
