The bible believers insist their god is good. And we accept it.

The challenge then is to list the good things this god has done. No, helping you find parking or find the keys you lost don’t count. The list has to be from the bible. We have a list of untold cruelty he did or was complacent in their commission.

This is the one time opportunity for goddites to impress me.

    I like the idea of a good god. The idea is good. He needs to be more like Santa. God has a long white beard (I see it in his pictures). He just needs a red suite. ๐Ÿ™‚ But then he would be the Devil. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Of course that might be an improvement.

    Er …. wait, I am still thinking , dammit!


  4. Well, God’s given us the Bible. That’s a good thing because it reveals his nature as a son of bitch in it. Without the Bible, we wouldn’t know what a prick he is. Ah, revelation! Where’d we be without it?

    Mak, I note with these sort of challenges that they don’t really get far because it always comes down to one real issue, does ‘God’ exist or not. I can understand why James (Isaiah 53:5) felt it was pointless to take up this challenge.

    I suppose what most of your respondents are really saying in a roundabout sort of way is that the evidence suggests that the God of the Bible does not exist.

    I like an argument that Bruce Gerencser put forward on his blog. He suggested that a powerful argument against the Christian God existing is the quality of lives lived by Christians. The fact that Christians share pretty much all the same faults as non Christians.

    I got it. I really do. God was the first troll. A good that God did was the creation of trolling. He spoke through sock puppets like Moses and Ezekiel. What a marvelous joy trolls are!

    It’s always seemed to me that the Christian God evolved out of the, or perhaps a, tribal god. That tribal god did good things to the specific tribe he protected, like enabling them to defeat other tribes. It’s not what people more generally would say is “good,” but if you belong to the right tribe you might see it that way.

    Now, why lots of other people wanted to start worshiping this tribal god who presumably doesn’t care about them has always puzzled me.

    What about the parting of the Red Sea thing? That apparently helped some non existent refugees escape a non fictional land.

    But if you are looking something that really happened, well, good luck. lol!
