I made a claim today that I should not have done without having specific examples in mind (and if this has been discussed before, please let me know).
My claim is that god is bipolar. Of course, there are other mental disorders we could label him with, but this is the one I want to explore.
It is evidenced initially by creation of the world.... he worked for 6 days with no sleep, and thought everything was good. (manic stage) and then he destroyed the world in a flood (depressed stage). But what else is there?
I found this article later, and while it was amusing, its not quite the concrete, biblical evidence I want, though it does make reference to a few books.

Why? Because I think this whole discussion is pointless, it gives theists and their made-up god too much attention, or because I don't agree with you? I can find so many flaws in this discussion... that's why I did post here.
First of all, who is god? Does he/she/it exist? Can you prove it? If yes, fine; if no, what's the reason of this discussion?
If you have proven that god exists, is he/she human or at least is it an animal? If yes, fine; if no, how can you determine whether it is sick or not? After all, if you talk about the god we all know that does not exist but we've heard so many times about, he is supposed to be all powerful, all knowing, ..., so I guess he can't get sick. So, what's the point of this discussion?
If the answers to my main two questions are no, how can nothing be bipolar? So, you're claim is incorrect. In the end, I did participate, and I hope it helped you. It's nothing personal, but I find discussions about something that doesn't exist useless, except when you're trying to help someone understand if and why that something does not exist.
I guess hope you're just bored.
You say "my bad" when you actually make a mistake...
Just so you won't say "Yeah, and you made a mistake" I'll just say it from now: I haven't made any mistake regarding this topic. The original post should have been enough for you to understand that, but you had to keep coming back for more. I am not apologizing for saying what I actually think.
JESUS H. CHRIST!
You have made such a big deal over nothing. Seriously. There are lots of gods and mythological characters that have human traits. That's because, as the exceedingly high majority of people on this site realize, they were made by humans as were the saviors they created. Zeus, Apollo, Thor, Gaia, Enkidu, Gilgamesh, Heracles, all human traits, all literary characters. To analyze God, as in the monotheistic character of Yahweh is just as valid.
You overreacted. Just let it go. If you don't want to participate, there's a little link that says "stop following."
