RE: So Why Not?
Hate? Isn't even in my vocabulary.

The christian god? The one in the old testament is an exeedingly cruel being. Genocide, infanticide, slavery, rape, abduction, he orders it done. Over and over again. Hitler was a sweetheart compared to him.

Anger and jealousy - he displays it constantly. Not very nice attributes, no?

He rules by fear - we even still have the term "god fearing". It's like people can't be decent of their own volition, they have to be shaking in their boots to have the motivation to do the right thing. And that seems to also be the attitude that christians have towards atheirst and believers in other religions - they have to be evil and live without morals, why - because they have nothing to fear? That's just sad!

He also rules by promising something that no one can ever come and collect - eternal life. But, not one of us will ever be able to say if it exists or not.

In real life, he doesn't reward his followers with anything at all. They live and suffer just like anyone else. Difference is that if I am in a car accident and lose a leg, I will say "shit, what am I supposed to do now - get a prosthesis guess". The believer will say "praise the Lord for not severing my head instead of my leg". How does this make any sense? Why would he mutilate his chosen people? He does it on a daily basis.

So, I don't hate the christian god because I don't believe he exists. He is just an old tale I think, a tale that was extremely useful back in those days because it assured people that their fellow believers would play by the rules and not steal their food and their wife and kill them. It was a measure of safety in a hostile world. It was law in a lawless chaotic environment. It made sense to have people scared of breaking this god's laws. There is nothing to hate there. These times were primitive.

So, no, I don't hate him, I just wouldn't like him if he were actually in existance. So if he were in existance, I would most certainly not worship him. He doesn't deserve it, he is a nasty being. If he is truly omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, he is responsible for everything. He is responsible for floods and hurricanes and nuclear spills and concentration camps and thousands of years of human suffering. Why would a god do such horrific things to his own creation? Why would he create people just to destroy them in agony? Why bothering to create all this when he already knows the outcome?

Science is the process we've designed to be responsible for generating our best guess as to what the fuck is going on. Girly Man
