I'm lucky too.  :shifty:
A few years ago I read, The Book of Revelation, for the first time in my life, and I was like... :twitch:    :wtf:    :worried:

It made me angry to see how much God hates our guts. That's when I developed an attitude:

Weirdly, very weirdly, it never occurred to me that God as portrayed in the bible was just wrong. It was always me who didn't measure up. It's all so sad, especially as Recusant says, for those still labouring under the burden.  But hey, I'm with HAF now, and happy.

Ok gather round children.

There was a guy who made some people out of sand then told him not to touch his stash but they did anyway, then he scared the hell out of them and kicked them out. Then he made them have kids, and those kids have kids with each other. Then the guy who made the first two sand people demand that all sand people give him tribute or be sent to hell. In these tributes, you have to give up all your secrets and privacy, but you don't have that with him anyway because he is spying on everyone already and knows you so well, he knows what you're going to do before you do it. And if you don't measure up to his confusing standards, he will send you to burn forever, in a crowded, underground lake of fire.

What if this time, god makes a woman first and she convinces (Adam) that only she can eat from the tree of knowledge and that god is a woman...and he believes her.  :lol:
Magdalena wonders...:???:

God hasn't tried that yet, he should. I'm sure we wouldn't abuse our power.  :devil2:

Hmm, somehow I don't think Uncle Bert (Bertrand Russell) would approve.  ;) He might still be your friend, though, even then.

Ah well, I'm probably too old for a couple of fit blokes anyway. They can have their freedom.😔
