"If you read the following Bible verses you will see that living things and plants are placed into two totally separate categories: living things,
and food. Before the flood, everything, man and animal, lived on a totally vegan diet:
19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and
female. " etc.
What do bible verses have to do with any universal idea 'God'?
Presumably when YOU speak of 'god' you refer to YHWH the post Exilic clan-god of Yisro'el.
You know...a CLAN god of an origiinally illiterate tribe of semi-nomads lost in the desert (with their portable tent-dwelling deity) who had to steal
(or more politely, 'borrow') an aleph-bet from the Canaanite Phoenecians since they had no written language of their own...
And the reasons you're citing words pertaining to that vicious clan god (whose obscene hobbies seem to include genociding Amalekites) are ___________
(fill in the blank)
What about all those other 500 million gods & goddesses like Vishnu?
Or the god Dagon? or the goddess Astarte?
or the god Ba'al? or the god Brahma?
or the god Enlil? or the goddess Aset?
or the god Zeus? or the god Wodin?
or the goddess Hecate? or the god Nebo?
or the god Allah? or the goddess Nephthys?
or the god Wusir (Osiris)? or the god Bast?
or the goddess Diana? or the god Pan?
or the god Cronus? or the goddess Hathor?
or the god Cerrunos (Kherunah)? or the god Apollo?
or the god Aten? or the god Ganesha?
or the god Loki? or the god Rama?
or the god Krsna? or the god Shamash?
or the god Yam? or the god Lotan (=post exilic Heb. 'Leviatan')\
or the goddess Asherah? or the god Attanuzzi (=Attamuz or Attanuz/Adonis) ?
or the goddess Venus (Aphrodite)? or the god Ares-Mars?
or the god Poseidon? or the goddess Kore?
or the god Attis? or the goddess Kubaba?
Why do you ALWAYS defer back to YHWH the clan god of the Jews when talking about the idea of 'god'? Is there a reason you can give me that makes any
sense at all?
Don't any of these far less Nature loving, and far less-vicious and hateful, sexist and xenophobic deities count for anythnig?
