secondly please dont waste your time with bible quotes. not only do they mean nothing but gibberish designed to confuse and obfuscate the point they have no relevance to the points i have raised. just stop and think about it for a second. if i believe the bible and the stories in there are not factual accounts and are metaphors and paraphrased stories with no historic backup how can you use the very text to prove the validity of the text?????? that makes no sense at all.
again my point is if god is all how can humans worship other gods???there cant be other gods. unless god is schizophrenic??

The first thing that gets me about the biblical god is the fact that for one god seems so HUMAN??? Why would god be jealous?? thats such a primitive emotion. why would a supreme being have its creation jumping through hoops like a bunch of circus clowns????and why is more than half the world NOT ASKING THESE QUESTIONS??? are they that satisfied with the answers they get? or are they too proud to admit they got sucked in and scammed? why would god who is supposed to be all knowing put adam and eve to a test and be surprised with the outcome?? how in the hell can anything surprise god??? doesnt that defeat the purpose of being all knowing?? oh and please dont copy and paste bible verses to me.
It boils down to this. When Jesus forgives us (and of course the Bible says God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all one in the same, don't ask, I think our fleshy brains can only comprehend so much) when he forgives us he will wipe the sin from his memory, effectively forgetting the sin.....not JUST forgiving. God also said that when everyone dies and families are ostensibly separated ....some going to Heaven....some to hell that there will be no tears in heaven ...only happiness. This again suggests that the memory of horrible things will be wiped from existance. That said, let's just suppose that God "wanted" to be surprised sometimes, yet still be in control. He could "forget" and then run his examinations. As for Jealousy. If God is all and knows all, that would suggest that he also encompasses all emotions (maybe more) as emotions are a part of the ALL. As someone stated before..... we are made in HIS image......not he in ours. Who says emotions, then, are a human trait?

im sure a supreme being with the capacity to manifest reality has the capabilities to keep its attention on every aspect of the creation. or it wouldnt exist. so im pretty sure the creator knows you and is watching you. or you wouldt exist to post this reply
Why would a creator need to pay attention to every aspect of creation? If creation was akin to a masterful work of art it simply needs to exist in itself. Picasso didn't feel the need to analyze his work...
Yo uguys will be surprised though,since when you die in this life,you will discover that there is no ONE SUPREME God,who decides your fate.
