God = Kim Jong-il
Come on you bible-totin' Christians out there, if you truly read the Bible with any kind of a critical discernment, you can't honestly believe that this God you worship is really worth all the praise you heap on him. After all, the OT is a blood bath of humanity that God perpetrates on his people solely because of his insecurities. In the NT he "loves you" so much that he sends Jesus to "save your" (from himself) -- then threatens you with an ever-lasting torment of fire if you can't wrap your head around such a ludicrous story, and choose not to believe.

No, the truth is, you're scared shitless of this monster -- that he will either cause you pain and agony in this life, or send you to eternal torment when you die -- or both.

God is to you what Kim Jong-Il is to the North Korean people. You know he doesn't give a rat's ass about you. He's letting millions of you needlessly suffer. But you need to bow down with praise and adulation, and PRETEND like you love him, to appease his insecurities -- simply to avoid his wrath. This is not sincere worship out of love and admiration, it's all based on gut-wrenching fear.

Put it this way, if there were absolutely no threat of retribution from God here on this earth, or a fiery hell in the after life, would you really be spending every waking hour glorifying him? Probably not. But with the intensely scary threats you have held above your head, you have no other choice.

And, if your retort is, "No, God is abounding in love! He loves each and every one of us. He protects us from harm, he suffers when we suffer. He is right and just. He is slow to anger and quick to forgive. He deserves our love and praise. Yada, yada, yada" Well all I can say is -- stop with the all the platitudes, take off your God glasses, sit yourself down in a nice comfy chair and READ THE FUCKING BIBLE!!

Take your own advise.

By the way; regardless of the righteous direction under God that all things follow, man has not only the capacity, but the desire to contort the truth. This can be seen on some level in scriptures of religions. Some, more than others.

One final point; for an atheist to make any claim about the nature of God is either negation of their atheism, or complete nonsense. How can one not believe and know or assume at the same time? They can't. To know, or even assume something one must believe it exists in the first place. So in short; stop talking out of your ass, or claim agnosticism.

Don't be foolish. We are commenting on what theists believe is the nature of their god. It is not us making that shit up.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Nonsense. People argue the finer points of star wars and star trek and all sorts of fictional universes all the time. One way to show the faults of an argument is to assume it to be true for the sake of argument and show that it is inconsistent or leads to impossible or irrational conclusions.

Entertaining a thought includes unbiased contemplation, not assumption, willful ignorance, and insulting the intelligence or the individual asserting the idea.
