HAHA! Loved it. But you forgot about the part 1/3 of his subjects rebel against his loving nature, and he sends them right where he put Adam and
But that's not all! These rebellious ones are able to rape and get earth girls pregnant with evil giants!
HAHA! Talk about a loving "father" type god? Uh, no.

That's a very imaginative, apologetic too, but totally a non-Biblical explanation!
There just wasn't room in the garden for any more "knows right from wrong" folks.
And what if it was Adam, man, who rebelled in that garden? What if it was Adam who had been created perfect and it was iniquity that was found in him
- not some silly man made doctrine of fallen angels?. What if it was Adam's brightness and pride? Look around you - this world is heading for a
showdown between it's rejection and rebellion to its Creator and that Creator Himself. Why? The mystery of iniquity.
Scripture states what you see in reality today - it is man who rejects His Creator. It is man, like the OP, that prefers to slander His Creator's
character instead of his own fallen state. It is man that prefers the good tiding messages of peace and love that do not tell him that the problem IS
MAN. It is man's pride and arrogance before a Holy God that causes him to assign horrendous and beast-like qualities to His Creator instead of
looking in the mirror and understanding that it is he making God in his own image and likeness.
Man was "kicked out" of the Garden of Eden to prevent him from taking from the Tree of Life .
"He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” Genesis 3:22
In the OP's human pride and arrogance, he rejects His Creator's gift to man - taking from that Tree of Life and eating, and living forever. Jesus
Christ is that Way, but prophetically, the world rejected him for the old son, fallen man. How utterly tragic is it that man cannot see that he is the
beast? Pilate told the crowds "Behold the man", and having been swayed, the crowds just shouted "Crucify Him". Jesus Christ restored everything
that Adam lost, and died to save His brothers whilst they were still sinners. He was his brother's keeper. Unlike Cain, of that wicked one, who
killed his brother because his works were righteous.
Our Creator created Adam who fell due to his own iniquity. There is an upcoming end to Adamic man because the new creation, those in Jesus Christ,
have been gathered.. For 2,000 years the wicked ones have been held at bay - the penis worshippers, the child sacrificers, the pyramid builders, the
barbarians and the hedonistic heathens who can think no higher than worshipping man and created things as "god" - in order to bring salvation to His
nations through the allowed preaching of His good news. We can therefore see today their return which signals our imminent judgement and the close of
this age of humanity. Next time you see that pyramid, look at media exalting beauty and wealth, or notice the hundreds here on ATS alone claiming that
they are actually "immortal and divine", please try to understand that that is what Our Creator held back through the presence of His Spirit here on
Earth. But as man rejects it, darkness comes flooding right back in because the Light is being rejected for that very darkness. That darkness is not
their brother's keeper. Like Cain they target the righteous, the innocent and the helpless. Murder of the unborn, euthanasia for the elderly, hatred
of the poor, disdain for the ugly, disdain for the "less intellectual"....so whilst you may clap and cheer this OP, I experience sadness that very
few can actually see what they are rejecting and consequently, what they are accepting as their future. Just as in the days of Noah. I know why the
flood came, and I wish that man could as well.
The OP is allowed to view His Creator any which way he pleases. But what he doesn't understand is that he is merely transferring his own qualities,
his own image and likeness, to a Creator God who is none of those things. This is how scripture is written - you are allowed to see what you want to
see. The OP finds it easier to assign beast qualities to His Creator rather than humble his arrogant pride and realise that it he that is beast-like.
Old creation v. New Creation. Scripture is clear that the old creation has an end. It serves itself and it's own will which are polar opposites to
the purpose and will of it's Creator.
