Once upon a time there was a perfect god. This god was the first anything in existence. This god was also the only thing in existence. This god, being perfect, needed nothing else and wanted nothing else because needs and wants come from imperfections. So this god created nothing else - nothing at all - and merely existed content for eternity.

The end.

Any questions?

So, wait, the dude just sits around on his lazy bum all day and does nothing, and that's perfection?
No, that's unemployment.

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.

.... so God's employed?

If he sits on his ass all day then I doubt it.

RE: The story of the perfect, creator god
LOL! I could see that as a movie storyline- Someone goes searching for god and they discover he's on the welfare rolls in the US. They track him down and discover that Jesus did come back and he quickly realized that it was easier to just live off welfare, play video games and be generally unproductive instead of establishing his kingdom or "fixing" the world's problems.

Then the person that went on this quest to find god realizes that it's up to us, and only us to fix the world's problems.

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition

Bonus points for him being in the middle of playing Katamari Damacy and trying to construct a coherent parable based on it while stoned on pot.

Existence was before this so-called god. Existence didn't need any god in the first place.
