Why do black people believe in god and try and make white people believe hes black. When god did not make one single black person he made adam and eve white. why cant they go believe in Ala or somthing like ever other person and stay off the white mans religion.

We don't have a description of Adam and Eve, so we don't know what they looked like. They could have had pink skin and green hair for all we know. God made all mankind in His image, so it stands to reason that God isn't black or white or brown or red or anything else. God is multifaceted and embraces aspects of all the peoples on Earth. His chosen people were Middle Eastern, after all. Not white. It was the white people who tried to destroy the rise of Christianity.

everyone has a choice as to what religion they wish to follow - if any. how can you be so racist and say that black people shouldnt believe in God? were you brought up around racists?? we werent really there...how can you honestly say with 100% certainty that adam and eve were infact white.... besides that...doesnt God preach to love your fellow man? He didnt say love your fellow white man....

Everyone knows the Tooth Fairy, Father Christmas and the Easter Bunny aren’t real… or do they? You ask just about any western child if the believe in any of these and chances are the answer will be yes. Why do children believe in these fanciful creations of humans… its pretty obvious when you think about it… it’s because it’s what their parents and the masses of adults out there tell their children. The reason children believe their parents and other adults is because they don’t know any better and a child sees their adults as authority figures. As we get older, generally, we come to learn to accept that Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy are not real and in fact were lies spread my a majority adults. They don’t exist because they exist; they exist because the majority of adults tell their children they exist, completely made up. The same is true about God, any God. It’s fair to say a majority of the adult population believes in a higher power of some form. I have no doubt a higher being exists, but not because they exist, but because its what we’ve been told for generation after generation, God is great, God did this, God did that. God created this Earth for benefit of man etc; this is completely untrue… God is a creation of man, just like Father Christmas and the Easter Bunny. In much the same way a child sees their parents as authority figures, for centuries people have seen religion as a form of authority figure and as such people have blindly believed what ever the religion of the day has said to be infallible and follow what religion says to do. Surely now you can see the link between Father Christmas and God (any god)… its crystal clear… if you cant see the connection then you have been blinded by faith. As a final point I would like to say if the Earth was created for the benefit of man… why do fish have bones?
