RE: God hates figs
Ok so he curses a tree that wasn't bearing any fruit to never bear any fruit.

This seems like an infertility issue to me.
Or
If I can't have any fruit from this tree right now, then no one will.

Damn seasonal fruit

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

He's the son of the Christian god. Of course his solution to everything's going to be deadly temper tantrums. What else is he going to learn from his dad?

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

It was to set the stage for events to come. Jesus isn't in the business of making people better. He's in the business of telling people to be better and then consigning them to eternal torture if they don't listen. But don't worry: there's good news! He came and unnecessarily died for your sins so that he could forgive them and not judge you harshly as describe above...

...unless you don't repent of your sins, which is pretty much the same as the whole "not listening to him" thing I just described before hand. It's all very confusing, and seemingly pointless. Dying for your sins or not, it seems he's still going to totally judge the shit out of you.

If he had the power to do that, why not have him make it bear fruit instantaneously? That would be a much more positive story and just as nicely unverifiable.

Was the idea to make him out to be tantrum prone?

Why didn't he know it wasn't fig season?

Most theists seem pretty ignorant of science. Drinking Beverage

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

RE: God hates figs
Glad he isn't planning to visit me - I love the fig tree in my garden. If anyone came here and threw a tantrum and withered my fig, I'd have to sick my dogs on him.

I really gotta look into getting a fig tree... But idk if it would survive. I just.. Love figs too much. Weeping

A couple months ago I was sitting in a bath with various oils and milk, eating figs, and playing with a fleet of toy boats... And I had a moment of clarity. I'm either living like a king, or a madman.

Maybe if they had Fig Newtons he wouldn't have had such a hissy fit. Drooling
