why did god need intermediaries to write the bible/ koran?

I was reading if god can write on a wall why can’t he write his own bible and it occurred to me that there are, at least, two occasions in the bible when god actually wrote some thing and so we must ask why not just write the damn thing once? Why have so many people telling odd stories then getting it all cobbled up together like A coat of many colours.

I hope the religious can help with this and we could then rest the matter.

  1. the usual apologia that I’ve seen for this is the free will argument. aka “if we knew that god really exists, then we wouldn’t have a choice”

      And we will point them to Adam and Eve, the first cretins. or to Jacob who wrestled with god, or to Abe who without consulting Sara wanted to kill their son or to the many instances god talks to Moses. That line will not hold, we have our bases covered 😛

  2. Sure you would have a choice, like, which god? there’s dozens of them out there, take your pick!


  3. That may be an excellent argument for the lack of gods anywhere. Or, maybe She was busy working on that avocado pit problem, you know, it’s too big. I wonder if She’ll take on loquats when She’s done with the avocado?


  4. Because otherwise humans would have nothing to argue about and fight over? Thereby giving a god more publicity than it really merited?,

    I don’t know. Search me.

    A story always gets better in the retelling.
    When we go out somewhere…like to a dinner at a new friend’s home, my husband tells the same darn jokes. 😦 But he always adds a little something or other and makes a whole new joke. 🙂 It keeps me from getting bored with his yak.


  7. Because he lost his hands in a car accident. Can’t expect the ole bloke to write without hands, now could you? He hired a temp service made up of Larry, Moe, and Curly, and then he dictated the Babble to them after consuming massive amounts of vodka.


    • makagutu says:

      be that as it may, he should have done proof checking. You don’t need hands for that, just a little sobriety and a knowledge of syntax which shouldn’t be a problem to omniscience

    Doesn’t ‘God’ deserve a secretary?
    I mean, he’s a busy bloke, what with that smiting and stuff.

    I think this ‘god’ of them will have lots of excuses for not doing that Mak, just like they always do. Guess he/she was too busy ‘punishing’ all the evil people. Yeah right! 😆

    God was actually illiterate for a long time; indeed theologians speculate he may have created humans to teach him how to read and write. Moses had to do quite a bit of copy editing on the Ten Commandments, for instance: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” originally read “Tou sbalbs havent no nothin kinder goo bafl mi,” which is utterly incomprehensible, Recent efforts to discover the algorithms of this sentence by running it through a computer spell-checker, have revealed that it isn’t a commandment at all but an admission: “that baseballs haven’t any sperm in them baffles me.” One cannot but be touched by the innocence expressed.


  11. Direct contact with God is suppposed to be very rare, according to Judaism. It’s about as rare as a shiny Pokemon (Red Garydos excluded). That’s why that big party in Mt. Sinai is such a big deal. A book written by God would be an example of direct contact. This refers to the Old Testament only. I don’t know anything about the Collected Stories of Jesus Christ

    As for the Quran, it is considered the word of God. That’s a major difference between it and the Old Testament that people often overlook when afraid to admit some Muslims kill a little too much.
