A Quick and Easy Guide to God. Your thoughts?

Comment by Josh Leach on August 5, 2011 at 6:25pm

Haha this is so true. I really like this.

This makes perfect logical sense, but it might lose meaning if our concepts of 'good' and 'evil' are different than what a god might 'believe' or 'know.'

Either way, I wouldn't be too surprised if many believers hadn't thought too deeply about the question.

We need to revise the chart to use meatballs for the caption bubbles and spaghetti for the connection threads.

This is pretty good!

This is very good :-)

This chart is PERFECT! It illustrates the amazing incapacity of atheists to comprehend something greater than themselves!

Perhaps, then, Liam, you could explain where the chart goes wrong?

Comment by Liam P Burke on August 7, 2011 at 8:42pm

God created Satan, originally Lucifer the head of a third of gods archangels. Therefore God created evil, and therefore God is not all good.

 

Originally, God created the angels, all in heaven with him. One third of them decided they were as good as he was and deserved their own kingdom. so he gave it to them.

 

Then he created man, and said that these are the things you are not supposed to do... It is up to you whether you want to be in heaven with him.

 

If he is all knowing, there is no need to test us because he already knows what you will do. However... You don't, and if you make it to heaven, you truly want to be there.

The chart went wrong in the choice after "Does god want to prevent evil?"

Comment by Heather Spoonheim on August 7, 2011 at 8:50pm

Where do you get this bit about 1/3rd of the angels asking for a kingdom of their own and Yahweh giving it to them?  You say a god (I'm assuming Yahweh) gave us a list of things we aren't supposed to do?  How do you know this?  What is the list?

 

If a god created us, then he either created us well enough to pass his test or not.  If not then it would seem he failed.  If yes then what is the point?
