BETTER AND BETTER
(quoting in red)
In The God Delusion, author Richard Dawkins asks: “If God wanted to forgive our sins, why not just forgive them, without having himself tortured and executed in payment … ?”
Yeah, right — as if even before The Creation the omniscient didn’t know how his infallible Creation (Mankind) would turn out (to be such a damned sinner*)? So in His Almighty omniscience God went ahead anyway … can His Godliness be compared to a boy breeding flies so that he can get his kicks pulling their wings off?
“When God created Adam and Eve, He made human beings who were not only dependent on Him for existence and life, but who He intended to enjoy a relationship with Him of sharing in His life and love.”
I’m afraid he has me there, there’s no way short of many thousands of words that I can address this point — other than by saying that I’m not s sure that I’d like to share the life and love of an omnipotent omniscient who (knowingly, note) goes right ahead and creates
(a) us, and
(or is it the other way ’round?).
Again the rational answer is:
- Great God Almighty
- is one almighty
- bloody sadist.
This God guy (no, not the writer of that blog I’m quoting—I mean the actual Spook in the sky) comes across as more a petulant damned mentally incompetent morally challenged inferiority-complexed idiot than anything else.
But still, we love Him, no?
* Infallible. Has to be … otherwise the Perfect Artificer created an imperfect product in full omniscient knowledge … again: we have a sadist.
