| If you can't get an answer to such basic questions about his priorities and motivations, how could you possibly conclude he was a thing worthy of worship?|
Phil, God does have a goal, direction, time frame, purpose:
Clearly it's to kill us all. I mean lets face it, any being who absolutely loves us unconditionally (forget the saving thing, I mean just the love god is supposed to have for us all) and who could do something about the problems we face would. Even if he only helped those who believed in every instance then those people should be totally immune to all the crap the universe throws at us.
I simply cannot believe that god is omnibenevolent if he exists at all. Assuming that the great dictator exists, then everything in the world, including the fall of man is HIS fault, the rest of this post will assume god is real. He created us knowing we would screw up like we did. I fail to understand how a being that loves us would knowingly condemn us to eternal punnishment.
For god to be all powerful and all knowing, he would know that man would be a colossal failure before he even made us as a species. This also provides a problem for free will, as if such a being as god existed, his prior knowledge of all events would mean that all of history and the future were forgone conclusions, meaning that no choices we make are real in any sense, as the outcome has already been written.
Yeah. I have long thought that God should be bitched-slapped up one side and down the other. Face it - god is a Big Dick.
The people that worship "Him" for the most part have NOT read their Holy BooK - if they did, and understood what the hell the goat-herders wrote about him, they'd be pissed too.
