God--an all powerful being--could still allow us to have free will and protect His creations as a "loving" father, especially when an innocent baby is being victimized and has no way to protect themselves.

Not only that, but babies are not yet at the developmental stage where "free will" would be a consideration in their lives. To swipe a line from Paul the Antichrist, a god that would allow those infants to be harmed is without excuse.

The irony of this statement is that it still makes us robots, according to their story. Only the creator of robots has the right to destroy them at whim, because they are not people but simply "things" that he created.

Their version of God the Creator, who kills when angry or displeased, is the same as the psychopathic "mad scientist" in nearly every robot-related sci-fi book/show.

(Edit to Add: Another related theme is that the creator loses the right to destroy his creations, the robots, when they become sentient/self-aware, and often they must fight him in order to show that they have the right to be more than "things" owned by their creator.)

I remember the loathsome Q stating that humans were just like clay jars that the creator made and could smash at his discretion. It's absolutely appalling just how dehumanizing their religious beliefs are, and they will not even acknowledge it, this is Cold Christian Compassion at it's worst, devoid of humanity and totally subjugated to this monster of their imagination.

I'll be your friend borg. Can I call you just borg now that we're friends?

And since now we're friends, I need to 'borrow' $20.
You know me borgy, I'm good for it.
Hey, I'll be a better friend than earmuffs, loan me $200! I'll payback one day, honest! Or you can make it a birthday present if you are feeling that generous.

Monsters from the Id.





Sci-fi covered that, too. Smile

Edit to Add: Thankfully, the Christian God has no actual powers, only the physical actions of those who share the delusion that it does (but of course must act through them, or through natural disasters that have a pattern of "attack" only they can see). If their God, their "monster from the Id", had the power of the Krell reactor, we'd be truly hosed!
