Well if God isn't going to do anything about preventing all of these innocent children from starving, then why would he answer any given person's prayer on any given day?

It seems that when something goes right, it's "oh, God answered my prayers", but then when something goes wrong, it's "oh, that's not God's fault".

Force himself into little childrens heads through bedtime stories and make people base their entire lifestyle around him. Nor would he demand the constant attention.

Moshei, God doesn't demand sh--. That's why there is free will. If He demanded it, everyone in the world would believe.

As you've mentioned this a few times, I've noticed, I suppose I'll answer. I don't like big points that I make to go unnoticed either. ;) Not only is it a test of faith, it's NOTHING is God's fault. PEOPLE do it. Do you think God makes the choice to molest children? No. Sick bastards do it. Not God. Why doesn't he stop it? It's called FREE WILL. God made the choice in the beginning of time to never f--- around with it. And f--- around with it, he will not do. With as many shortcomings as that brings, God works miracles and works through peoples' lives everyday. Suffering is apart of life.

So your definition of "free will" means that your god doesn't answer prayers. And you previously stated that "God" answers "all" prayers. Which is it? Free will or God answering all prayers?
