Ok, this post is about exactly what I was thinking about earlier tonight when I was reading Faceless' posting. He posted some awesome info.
I had to send him a U2U on it, and while I was writing it I started thinking about the possibility that we may be getting too smart. First, read what
Faceless has posted (remember, it's not the catholic propoganda, it's direct hebrew translations).
Ok, so here we go. Faceless pointed out that apparently God just wanted a gardener, so he grabbed a homonid (fairly evolved and useful) to reside in
his garden, etc. It appears that God was trying to keep the homonid ignorant (sounds like the USGov is playing God!) so that he could keep it working
for him. Same thing ast the slave traders did. Once the slaves started realizing that stuff wasn't right they revolted, etc. Ok, so that was a quick
jist of it...
So, I was thinking: IF god made man in his own likeness, maybe he screwed up and made man a bit TOO MUCH like him. He figured he could just keep man
stupid and man would never realize that he is 'godlike'. How would he keep man stupid? Threats.
IF you sin, you will go to hell. This is hell (blah blah blah). Be scared! IF you do as I command, I will let you into my realm (heaven).
How do you get a kid to behave? 'IF you don't behave, you are grounded to your room. IF you are good, you get treats'.
So, that would make God an opressor, and Satan a truthbringer! 'god' has always told us that Satan lies! Don't believe him! He is the ultimate
deciever! Such accusations... sounds to me like god is playing 'Not it!' and acting like a brat. "He broke that! He did it! It wasn't me!" Has
Satan ever been known to do that? Has Satan ever REALLY been known to deceive, other than what God said?
WHY WOULD YOU ONLY TAKE ONE PERSON'S STORY?!? Why do you only take God's story then? This site is all about being open-minded, right? Yet I see
people who still yell "because God said so!"...
Here's one philosophers should be familiar with:"Why do you believe in God? Because the bible tells you to. Why do you believe in the bible? Because
it is god's word."
Starting to look to me like God isn't anything but a big talker. We are on the verge of being gods ourselves, and why is it such a bad thing to
'play god'? because it's god's command that we don't? Oh yeah... the christian nation thinks it's a bad idea to become 'like god'. Why would
God make so many rediculous rules?
I think he's getting scared we'll get all 'X-Files' on him and find out the truth. Think Satan answers to an 'X' taped in a window? I really
want to know the other side of the story.
