Wouldn't that make a god, bipolar?
The god that's talked about in the bible certainly is manic, and prone to severe mood swings.
He comes off as a petulant tyrannical infantile.
What's with all his out of control rage issues?
He'd get arrested in this world.
And he would be a piss poor designer of anything practical.
Is that why he's supposedly jealous of other gods?
Because he just couldn't measure up in comparison?
So he'd create a band of fanboys and groupies that elect him #1?
Ya, that's some champ.
If he wanted his creations to follow a pattern, why would he design in a mechanism that could arbitrarily override his original pattern?
Just so he could get pissy over something?
Ya, talk about working in 'mysterious' ways.
Is that an apologists euphemism for being drunk, or retarded?
What a drama queen.
Who would want to put up with that ch1t, let alone sign up for that?
And why is it that he wouldn't be able to control his emotions, and just 'get over it', when we do what we like?
What would have been his issue?
We didn't ask to be born, and we certainly didn't ask for free will. So why get pissy over something he would have been responsible for making us have?
As Hitchens says, "Of course I have free will. I had no choice!"
And if he gave us a gift (life), why would he want something in return?
Isn't "It's better to give than receive" supposed to be a virtue ?
Why justification for being petty, and wanting something in return, would he have?
That's not doing something out of the goodness of your heart.
It doesn't sound like he would actually have much heart at all.
The dude sounds like he'd have a lot of anger, some real dysfunction going on, and severe control issues.
And where would he get off on hurting people that aren't strong enough to put up a fight?
He'd be beating up on women and children?
Real tough guy.
Sound like he'd be a complete fcuking douchebag.
It sounds like this dude would be completely out of control, of his emotions, and actions.
Things that we humans are supposed to learn to control.
Sound like he would have been able to learn to be more 'human', and that he should take guidance from us.
And apologize to all of us for being so despicable, and all the insane ch1t he'd have done to us.
I don't think he'd be man enough.
He really would need to piss off, and leave the minions alone, if he were real. And I'm glad he's not, and just a fairy tale.
They could use some better role models.
Why aren't those minions looking at how we (humans) are infinitely better 'beings' than a freak like that would be?
Glad he's not real.
That would be a nightmare...
I keep asking myself " Are they just playin' stupid, or are they just plain stupid?..."
