Thanks to Martyn for these:

1. {Yahweh / God / Allah} knew about bacteria. Why didn't he ever tell us?
2. {Yahweh / God / Allah} made Earth for man, so why do asteroids fall fom the sky, and volcanos erupt?
3. {Yahweh / God / Allah} gave us a sense of justice, so why is it wrong to demand the same from Him?
4. {Yahweh / God / Allah} inspired the Bible. Why is there no protection for children in it?
5. {Yahweh / God / Allah} had a son. Why does no-one actually know when he was really born?
6. {Yahweh / God / Allah} demands we worship him. We all 'know' He's a God, so why the need?
7. {Yahweh / God / Allah} made us in His image. So, does he fart too?

And Stephen Yarde for:

If god made the earth and gave us the bible as our guide, why didn't he include a map in it? It would be much more convincing if it had an accurate global map with all the continents, and oceans depicted.

Useful to remind black Xtians how the god they now worship was forced on africans at the edge of a sword.

My contribution:

Q: If an all-powerful god exists, how come it needs people to kill in its name?

God created this universe? So you worship an extra-terrestrial alien creature - right?

God is all powerful? So how come He sends us ambiguous signs all the time - can't he just text?

God answers your prayers? Has He ever cracked a joke?

What is the safest means of communication - God's burning bush or an iPhone?

God inspired three Holy Books. How come you only believe in one of them?

God killed my baby in the 7/7 London bombings. Is that evidence of a just God? And if you think so I think you really need professional help.

So after millions of years of evolution, and tens of thousands of years of intelligent life, God only chose to reveal himself to us 2 thousand years ago?

Most religious people don't believe in any of the thousands of other Gods that people have, and still do, worship. Atheists just go one God further!

If God is all powerful and all knowing, why does he need our constant worship?

Hi Brent, a very warm welcome to the group, and glad to see you on the forum as well.

Good points - one has to wonder why/how religious people can ignore such obvious stuff every single day of their lives. I guess the human capacity to make like an ostrich is a force greater than reason sometimes!
