First, the Jewish people, who are the original writers of the Old Testament, did not believe in the divinity of Father, Son, and Holy spirit. Jesus
Christ is not the messiah of the Jewish people, which is why Christianity and Judaism are separate religions, with a common founding ancestor. So, the
plurality of Elohim cannot refer to the Christian trinity. Nice try though. I would have believed that the Kabbalah, through its use of divine names
might have accounted for the plurality thing. However, you did not address this, so, I am inclined to believe you don't know about that aspect.
Second. Correct, God does not create any of that... except, God is the Creator
, of all, and everything. So, whether made by man, or not, all
creation is an aspect of God. Unless God is not the Creator, but just another god among a plethora of already-existent gods. God has idols, and
idolatry, which He sees fit to not punish. Either an absence of God, or the idolatry is permissible of God, are the only explanations.
Fourth. The health benefits aside, all manner of Christian and Jewish work places are open on Friday (Islamic holy day), Saturday (Jewish holy day),
and Sunday (Christian holy day). So, whatever facet of Yahweh worship you partake of, their are Jews, or Christians, or Muslims working on the Sabbath
and not being put to death for doing so.
Five. Jesus' coming causes a void to form between family members based on belief in Christ. Since Christ is both the son of, and God incarnate, then
God is coming to cause dishonor among families. Whatever way you want to twist the words: Christ's appearance causes children to be dishonorable to
their parents, and Christ is God, so God causes it. Breaking His own commandment.
Six. To murder someone, and to kill someone are the same thing, when the intent is for the victim to die. God commands a flood of the entire Earth,
with the intent of killing, removing, and cleansing the world of it's inhabitants, which He deems sinful. Likewise, the destruction of Sodom and
Gomorrah is a killing of two villages because God deems them sinful. God's intention is to kill, and whether carried out by angels, or His own hand,
people are killed. It does not matter what you say, because God willed the deaths of billions, and to will a death which then occurs, is to commit
Seven. Impregnation requires a sexual liaison. Since the birth occurred as per normal, human births, then a normal, human copulation was required. You
can speak of "miracles," and the "immaculate conception" all you like. But it does not remove the fact that God had sex with an individual He was
not married to. That is adultery. Additionally, the Gospel of Mark, and of Paul, do not adhere to the virgin birth story. So, if God did not commit
adultery, it is wholly possible He did not even have a son at all.
Eight. In Sumer, Egypt, and Babylon human beings are created out of clay and breath/semen/blood. Just as in Genesis the Lord makes man out of clay and
the breath of life.
Utnapishtam, sometimes called Ziusudra, was a Sumerian and then Babylonian peasant who lived during a time when Ellil, called El, was upset with
humans vile nature, and determined to flood the world to kill them all. A single family, Utnapishtam's, was forewarned and instructed to build a
boat, where-in pairs of all living species would be saved from Ellil's flood. Sounds a whole lot like Noah and the ark.
In Mesopotamian mythology we have the story of Enmerkar and Enshukeshdanna, where the former claims rights to his people from the latter. Both then
engage in a faith-based magical duel, where-in their staffs are both turned to animals and the animals engage in a quarrel to prove who is the deities
true chosen people. Much akin to Moses and Pharaoh.
The reality is there, Yahweh, Judaism, and Christianity are plagiarized. For much more information on this topic, check out
Nine and Ten. Yahweh's position as covetous and a liar are supported by His stealing of middle-eastern pagan mythologies. As for "nothing" creating
something... your lack of scientific understanding is apparent. A singularity existed, from which the "Big Bang" erupted. It was not "nothing," as
Christians ignorantly love to claim. The real "nothing to something" creation myth comes from Christians who state that there was "nothing" and
God came and made everything.
