RE: What's wrong with the 10 commandments?
Well, they start off lame for one thing. God begins by saying that humans shall have none of the other Gods before him.

Rather bold, don't you think? Why should humans accept that?

After hundreds of thousands of years, and thousands of perfectly good and evil gods, this one claims all for itself. This one is both good and evil, so maybe it will save time, I guess.

The first ones are all about God and humans' relationship to God and the rules that they must follow to make God feel loved.

Then God just adds common sense rules that everybody already knows, and this is supposed to be such a great thing?

And...then some get added in about how to make or cook things so that God won't get pissed off. Weird.

I think it had to do with Jesus being hungry one day, and got angry when a fig tree refused to make some fruit for him so he cursed it. Figs are assholes that way.

With loaves & fishes however Jesus can magic up some grub no problem.
The fig tree was not even in season, so his shit fit is even more petulant than it otherwise would be. Maybe his mojo failed him that day.

God openly admits that there are other gods around that you can choose from.

And you can worship them as long as he gets first place.

Yeah...but none of this says not to eat figs.

Yep... that's when God invented superglue. Except it was made basically from reprocessed asses milk, and never had any chance of working.

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

But he already did come down...sorta... Yahweh "created" this Jesus guy as a type of god/man and this Jesus guy actually broke that rule himself? Cause he's not really Yahweh is he, but he acts like a god and says crap like "...you can only get through to my father...which is me... through me, which is also him. So Jesus puts himself ahead of god! Hobo

Maybe there was an 11th commandment on the first set of tablets that were broken that read "Do as I say, not as I do" Shy

And now you made him sound like a bouncer Gasp

You're for it, my friend, I'm afraid - now you've really pissed him off but good.

Though it would def. explain this:
