Are you saying that it's contrary to creationism to have such a high all time population of people because God shouldn't be that lonely?

Thank you for the clarification request Smile I'm not sure I can help though.

To be honest, I don't think I really knew what I was asking in particular, I was just beginning to explore this concept myself, in a new way.

I have thought about this more since the original post and have learned some new things. I totally 'get' needing more than one person for a lonely feeling. I am married and I love my husband. He helps me to not feel lonely and every day I fall more in love with him. But he is not enough, not even close. I need my other family members- mother, father, sisters and brother, my children- who are all important but each differently important. My two sisters are differently important to me than the other. And all my many friends. My best friend died two months ago and no one, not one single friend, could come close to being who she was to me. Now that she is gone I feel lonely for her, and not one other person can satisfy that feeling, though I love my other friends just as much. So maybe I can understand the multi faceted relationships because I'm sure I'd feel that way about every person who I love and is important to me. But 56 billion of them?

And why couldn't ONE be created to satisfy all those loved ones (I mean, God can do anything right?)?

Because we have free will and so if 'one' screws up there are others? Sad I am sure we have all felt betrayal, but that betrayal I would have never created for myself in the first place to deal with later... I cannot accept this concept from a God who is supposed to be perfect. And then to give me a feeble mind to not comprehend the bigger picture of why murder, hate, rape, betrayal is okay? That in itself seems cruel.



I realize I am all over the place, and I do not have only one question... I think I am just exploring it and am welcoming input of any kind on anything to do with the creation of 56 billion people, especially how the population grows and we aren't all here at once but in one life after the other, generation after generation. So I never get to meet a Paul from 200AD and be his friend now, but later I will, and God is friends with all of us but we can't know all of each other? Why put me in a situation where I have science to tempt me to not believe... this would had been so much easier 2000 years ago when there were only 300, 000 people and only a few hundred in my local area to convince me the earth is flat and God is real. Just saying'.

Many tangents I know.... Oh well!

Two reasons I can think of:

God is a douche who is dependent upon the adoration of others. Which, BTW, makes him no longer omnipotent.

and

God's douchebaggery knows no bounds...he needs about 55 and a half of those 56 billion souls to roast in hell, hearing their shrieks of torment for an eternity, all the while basking in the adoration of the elect who keep telling him what a job well done...

Hm...Wonder how long it will take before God says, "Hm. Well, that went by pretty quickly. Now what do we do?"

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

Brilliant!

Just laughed aloud whilst drinking coffee when I read that. I now have coffee in my nostrils, a shirt that needs urgently replacing and an office full of baffled colleagues.

Worth it though.

wrong. God is not lonely. He has big eternal family in heaven. He is one of many Gods. He has wife or wives.

How many? We don't know exactly. He also has children on different planets.

Yes dear. Whatever you say dear. Weeping

I'm think the Pope's message on climate change is rather strange, and hypocritical, in light of the fact that his religion is so against birth control.

So what planet are you from? Necrotus?

The "unwritten rule" I follow for necroposting is that if it must be done, add something meaningful to the conversation. Which of course is beyond Alla's skill set. Tongue

Boot her butt or rebutt her bullshit?

She's doing a great job of highlighting that you don't need LSD to be LDS.

LDS loser or LSD user? You decide.

She could definitely be both. Thumbsup

Her posts actually demonstrate a stereotype that I generally try to resist in regards to theists- they're fucking insane! At the very least, Mormons are bat-shit crazy if they believe this stuff.

Maybe there's a sane humonculous somewhere in there trying to claw it's way out.

I think it's more of a 'why does God need' question. What is the point of heaven for God? You've explained why he had a son. Why does heaven exist when it doesn't really need to?

I can see a Christian response to this somewhere along the lines of this: god is love and because of such, created us to be recipients of his love. Since his love is infinite, his need for recipients is therefore also infinite . . .

At least that is the kind of bullshit I would most likely say if I were still a Christian
