Quote from: Baruch on October 28, 2020, 04:45:11 PMG-d creates all things, all life. And destroys all things, all life. You don't like it? Then storm heaven with Robespierre. G-d is not a republican nor a democrat nor is limited to such human-like tendencies. Think Cthulhu. Real monotheism means there is no Satan, unless G-d is Satan (aka The Adversary). Jews and Muslims are more clear on this point than Christians.

Quote from: Cassia on October 29, 2020, 12:02:58 PMIt is all part of having the most 'kick-ass' god. If you want new converts and believers your god can't be a wimp..no.. it has to be more powerful than the previous ones. That's explains the migration to monotheism. A big bad ass mofucker. Still scares the shit out of so many sheeple to this day. However people were accustomed to an entertaining cast of deity characters so monotheist religion had to come up with a cast of angels, demons, prophets, saints, spirits and family members, victims, and villainized fools to keep the bullshit stories compelling.
Quote from: Simon Moon on October 28, 2020, 04:17:00 PMThe 'holocaust of the children', as Greg Paul puts it, dwarfs any human caused holocaust by a wide margin. All of the mass slaughters of the 20th century combined pale by comparison. Here are the numbers:Up to this point, there have been over 100 billion people ever born.At least half of them have died, and continue to die, before they make it out of childhood. Most estimates say the figure might have been as high as 75% dead children before the advent of agriculture. That is 50 billion dead children. Over half of that number have died of natural disease.So, this god created a universe with at least 100 billion galaxies, each with at least 100 billion stars, with an untold number of planets orbiting these stars (4000 extrasolar planets found thus far in our galactic neighborhood alone) only to create one that is a literally a child killer, and put children on it. "But, but... The Fall of man!" I hear you exclaim. Sorry, but that does not let god off the hook. Being omniscient, he would have known the Earth was going to be a child killer, yet he let it happen anyway, "But, but... free will!" I hear you exclaim. Really? What age do children understand the concept of free will? What free will did the 20 billion children have that have died of malaria?This doesn't even take into consideration, those who do not survive the reproductive system. Over 50% of all fertilized eggs never make it. They don't implant into the uterus, or they are naturally aborted after implant. In the US alone, there are 4 million births a year out of about 8 million conceptions. There are about 1.3 million induced abortions a year, that leaves 2.7 million 'god' induced abortions a year. Figuring that prenatal care is pretty good and infant mortality is fairly low in the US, who knows how many 'god' induced abortions are occurring in the rest of the world, where this isn't the case.So, a god put us on a world that seems designed to slaughter children by the billions, and this same god created the human reproduction system designed to abort at least half of all conceptions.Please explain again how this god is moral?
