Is God competent or incompetent?
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:17:15 PM »
Is God competent or incompetent?

We are told in scriptures that evil begets evil and good begets good. God, as our creator, according to scriptures, creates us all as sinners, which many see as evil.

God can thus be seen and judged as being the original sinner since the fruits of his labor (us) went bad or are born bad.  A tree is known by its fruits.  What else could come from a sinner tree but sin?

I give God a fail on competence for the following reasons.
God created heaven that produced Satan. Fail.
God created Eden which produced Original Sin. Fail.
God had to reboot creation with Noah’s flood. Fail.
God sent his son to forgive mankind instead of stepping up himself. Fail, for moral reasons.
God also had to create hell for his rejects which scriptures say will be the vast majority of us. Fail.

Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds and if we believe that, then the Christian God would obviously be rejected by Jesus and agree with my fail judgement.

Do you agree?

There is no god.

The question has no meaning.

There are only competent and incompetent humans, some of whom have a delusion about some sort of supernatural entity.

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

Why do you continue to ask stuff and when people answer, you give these answers?

I am not going to provide links to the reality of Gnostic Christianity for you to ignore.

Maybe the question isn't whether God is incompetent?  I don't know that these questions can be answered?

The god described in Christian mythology is much the same as gods in any other mythology--a crude caricature of a powerful human being. No human being is entirely good nor entirely evil, though almost all tend in one direction or another. The god of Christian mythology undoubtedly tends towards evil. However he suffers from dissociative identity disorder (formerly known as "multiple personality disorder") and one of his personalities is a narcissist who seems to mostly mean well.
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."

Is God competent or incompetent?
First one must prove the existence, before one tries to prove the competence.
