JERUSALEM — A sign at the ice cream parlor may caution men and women not to lick cones in public, but the warning didn’t stop Jewish zealots vandalizing the shop in Jerusalem’s main ultra-Orthodox neighborhood.
Such a teacher would be a douchebag if the handing out of problems was not preceded by a discussion on how to solve them. Isn’t that obvious? Such an individual would be anything but a teacher, maybe a bad teacher at most.
In the same manner a god that is unable or unwilling, if such a thing existed, would be total douche him/her/itself. Such a being would be anything but a god, maybe an evil god at most.
At the end of the day how can a deity that does nothing be something? To think for oneself is to accept reality as is first. No whining like a bitch in defense of a deity that cannot defend itself, mainly due to a total lack of existence.
People tell me that I cannot even begin to attempt to understand God, for He is a concept too large for us to grasp.But from what I’ve heard, there are a few rules about Jehovah/Yahweh/God that most theists seem to agree on:
- God is the omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient creator of everything. He knows everything, has the power to do anything, and is the point of origin for everything that has ever happened in this universe.
- God is Perfect. He makes no mistakes, His creations are perfect, and everything that happens is part of His perfect plan.
- God loves everything He creates. He loves the planet Earth, he loves all its inhabitants, and He loves YOU. As a result of this love, He also gives his creations free will.
With these three rules in mind, it would be very assuring to believe in God (I mean, you have an all-powerful Father than loves you, has your back, and plans for every event in your life from birth til death).
Is anybody else beginning to see the contradictions here? If such a being is truly Perfect, why is his creation so imperfect? If God spawned everything that ever existed, and He exists, what spawned Him? How can God have emotions, such as jealousy and anger, when He is omniscient? How can we have free will if He already has the past, present, and future planned out? Why does He create atheists if He wants humans to believe in him? Why didn’t God preserve His Holy Word the Bible over the centuries? There are a thousand questions one could ask. All of them imply that God doesn’t exist, or that God doesn’t really hold the above properties.
Reblog this, and add something that doesn’t make sense to you. I kind of want to see what other issues people see with the existence of this all-loving all-powerful all-knowing Creator.
