The very moment any believer starts to defend god, using any number of (horrible) apologetics, or the moment they start describing any attribute, characteristic, or desire of god, they are using logic.

Yes.

If the ultimate endpoint is "God is unknowable" then it is the height of incoherence to get there by knowing things about God along the way.

But then, most of the time all that apologetics nonsense is only to reassure believers (who believe for subjective personal reasons if not cultural inertia!) with a veneer of reason. Certainly it doesn't stand up on its own!

So his god is incomprehensible and, by most measures, insane. Why is he trying to have a rational discussion about a deity(?) that he can't comprehend?

If his god is incomprehensible, by what measure does he determine that his god is good? Consider

Why is this God just given a pass on this. He's not accountable for the logic in his messages, his actions, his tyranny?

The big stand point I had to make was this: If anything your God should be more accountable for the logic in his actions and words than anyone because of course he is all knowing and all powerful. He should be able to make it clear what he wants and be able to convey it to even the lowest common denominator.

I dunno I just don't see how anyone can accept this so blindly anymore its really disheartening especially when it's someone like this friend that I've known since pre k.

The thing is they don't accept it blindly.... When they resort to that tactic, you've touched a nerve and brought them face to face with real logic and shown his illogical their beliefs are.

I would respond by pointing out that they (the theists) are being hypocritical by on one hand claiming to know what God wants of humans, and on the other hand saying he is unfathomable...

Really, just the fact there are so many conflicting ideas all over the world, about who this God fella is, and what he wants shows that its got no basis in fact.

If there were any factual basis for any of it, the religious disagreements around the world could be settled through a scientific process. But since there is nothing but conjecture, religions inevitably end up fighting like children.

How many millennia have humans been knocking the shit out of each other over religion? Surely by now, some of these religious leaders would have realized that the argument is never, ever going to be settled?

What was the definition of insanity again?

Funny. If God's logic is "not understandable," then why are so many people absolutely sure on what this God wants and what I'm supposed to do about it?

There is no "I" in "team" but there is a broken and mixed up "me."
