I have no time for the notion of God giving man free will.

God supposedly makes all the souls in his soul factory, before they get stuck onto humans, at whatever stage of maturity, the religious think is correct. The maker of the soul is responsible for the ultimate result.

Otherwise, nobody can slap anybody for their faith:

Your post does nothing to counter the fact that it's okay to kill someone because they might cause someone to disbelieve. Not will, did, or had, but might.

I'm not going to go to all the sites that you post. I went to one and that's more than enough.

You have no time for the notion of a god at all (other than to conclude that there is no such thing).

The idea that a fictional god can not create people with free will is just silly. Like I say, who makes up these rules?
