As whatever "gods" you're talking about—in some sort of pseudo-intellectual fashion—are simply mythical figures created in a period of scientific ignorance, any debate about them is ultimately futile. We may as well be discussing whether unicorns are pink or mauve. And with, or without, sparkly bits.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Nah. God would have to exist for that to be the case.

RE: Sorry for the last post wrong word but to ask is God actually a bad guy.
There were actually a ton of gods in the Canaanite pantheon.

Two specific ones are referred to in the Bible.

El is the 'most high' god of the original Canaanite pantheon. His name is all over Genesis.

Yahweh, was the Canaanite god of war. His name appears almost exclusively as the name referring to the Israelite God from Exodus onward.

Dubious origins for this monotheistic sect but let's continue.

It can almost be guaranteed that human sacrifices were originally offered to Yahweh, who actually also was a consort to Asherah before being promoted by the Jews to 'El's' spot. And yes, Yahweh is an awful, lowly, gross, unworshipable, despicable being, by even the most basic humanistic moral standard.

Taken directly from the first Paragraph of the wikipedia article on 'Yahweh,' which no religious people ever seem to read:


"Yahweh (/ˈjɑːhweɪ/, or often /ˈjɑːweɪ/ in English; Hebrew: יהוה‎‎) was the national god of the Iron Age kingdoms of Israel (Samaria) and Judah.[3] His exact origins are disputed, although they reach back to the early Iron Age and even the Late Bronze:[4] his name may have begun as an epithet of El, head of the Bronze Age Canaanite pantheon,[5] but the earliest plausible mentions are in Egyptian texts that place him among the nomads of the southern Transjordan.[6] In the oldest biblical literature he is a typical ancient Near Eastern "divine warrior" who leads the heavenly army against Israel's enemies;[7] he later became the main god of the Kingdom of Israel (Samaria) and of Judah,[8] and over time the royal court and temple promoted Yahweh as the god of the entire cosmos, possessing all the positive qualities previously attributed to the other gods and goddesses.[9][10] By the end of the Babylonian exile (6th century BCE), the very existence of foreign gods was denied, and Yahweh was proclaimed as the creator of the cosmos and the true god of all the world.[10]"

Your biblical god makes Stalin and Hitler look like sweet little girls at a tea party , so yeah, your deity is a big fucked up dick.

Don't forget he killed 40 children because they made a joke about a guy being bald.
Well, being bald is nothing to joke about.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Being bald, I joke about it all the time. Thumbsup
