And yet you believe and can tell us all with certainty that he would create different sets of laws for different sets of people, and that it might
just have something to do with DNA. From this I can only infer that you're correct in your assumption that God has a sense of humor, and that
you got a healthy piece of it.
You're saying that our thinking and behavior having no bearing on God, just after stating that he draws up different laws for people, just
illustrates the kind of contradiction that is the folly of religion.
Why is it then, that we must constantly check our behavior, and the behavior of others against our own renditions of God's law? I think it serves no
other purpose than to claim superiority over others. I DO believe that if there were a God that he would be affected or changed in no way by our
thinking and behavior. This is only logical.
But when Moses and others proclaimed that God had "chosen" the Jews over other people, and that laws must be adhered to in order for their
"enemies" to be driven from their lands, this suggests that our thinking and our behavior does indeed effect God's.
When the Pope calls for one and two and three Crusades against the infidels, and says it's OK for the infidels living at home to be burned to death,
and that it is the will is God's will, and the grace is God's grace, and refuses to apologize later for such stupidity, well, then I say they have
no God. Oh, but they did just apologize to the Knights Templar for labeling them so that they could steal all the money in their banks. Hmmm... Yeah,
no God that I see.
And this is the part that is crap. This is the human rendition of God, and is the reason why I cannot believe any of it. If you believe in the
doctrine, if you believe in the dogma, then you believe in the history, and accept in it's wrongness; your ears and deeds are hanging on the words
and works of men. And if so, I hope for the sake of those who do, that there is no God, because you should be unpleasantly suprised at the time of
death to find the consequense of being lied to for so long, and blindly accepting.
