Everybody seems to cite the bible as if it has some profound knowledge unobtainable by man, as if the stories are somehow real or good, but I just don't see it. All I see is god making a product with what he could only consider to be a design flaw, a mind and a will of its own, and then perpetually compounds his mistake by punishing them for being precisely the way he made them. Adam and Eve doesn't blindly obey his commands, better banish them and curse them with pain and death. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah aren't obeying his commands, better kill all of them but Lot's family, whoops better fuck up the wife because she disobeyed and looked back at the life she had. People stop listening again, we'll kill all of them, except Noah because he begs really good. Crap, now their building a tower, better scatter them and confuse their language so they don't build any tall buildings again. So on and so forth, over and over, it is a laundry list of inevitable failures, all because he built a product he didn't really want, if he wanted blind unthinking obedience he never should have bothered to give us a mind. I mean, what the hell, why the hell would it punish its supposed creation for being EXACTLY what he created it to be?
It's nonsense, it has to be, because no omniscient being could possibly be THAT ignorant or incompetent. In my WILDEST fever dream I couldn't have dreamt up a less consistent deity, it doesn't even try. Failure, after failure, after failure, after failure, and the best he can come up with is a human sacrifice, of himself to himself, to destroy a law he created in the first place. And the mother of a fuck of it is, if you don't blindly accept this sacrifice that was supposedly made on your behalf, you will be tortured forever. It simply has to be the most masochistic, servile, dogmatic belief systems in existence. If you had never heard it before, and someone attempted to explain it to you, you would most likely think them unbalanced or worse.
