10 Reasons why the Christian God isn't worth Worshiping
10. Weak ego. He needs to be worshiped to the point of expecting people to behave themselves in order to do what? Spend eternity worshipping him in Heaven. What a loser.
9. He's perfect, and he created us in his own image... really? He has a tailbone and weak lower back? He is allergic to the plants and animals that he himself created? Does he forget where he put his car keys? Well, maybe he likes puppies. That would be a point in his favor. But seriously, how can a superior being create inferior beings and then say they're in "his image?"
8. Supposed to be unchangeable but keeps changing his mind. If you trace his approach to punishment from the "Fall" through the End-Times, you would never know what theory of justice he subscribes to. He has wiped out the whole "world," countries, cities, and punished the children of sinners to the seventh generation. Then he decides, nah, sacrifice an animal to the priests at the temple and I'll let you off. Then he decides to spare the animals and sacrifices Jesus. ... but then he threatens everyone with Hell. Which is it?
7. Stopped talking to us. He used to talk to prophets. Now he only talks to schizophrenics. What gives? Doesn't he love us anymore?
6. Can't get his people to agree on anything. There are three religions that supposedly believe in him. Each of them has numerous large and small branches. Is this the big ego at play again? Being so obtuse that billions of people argue about what he's like? Is that how he gets his attention? Why not spell it out? He's GOD for Pete's sake. He could engrave the whole *CORRECT* bible on the walls of the Grand Canyon! Why hasn't he?
5. Poor communicator. See #6 above. He could speak plainly if he wanted to. He supposedly made Ronald Reagan and Dubya Bush, who were plain-speaking idiots who knew how to reach "the folk." If he could make people who could communicate like that why can't he speak like that himself?
4. Bad parenting skills. Right from the get-go he's a jerk as a parent. "Don't touch that apple!!! Oh darn you touched the apple! Now I have to condemn you and all your children and their children for eternity. Bad kids, bad." WTF? He made the apple! Why put temptation within reach?
3. Poor designer. "Intelligent" design my arse, literally. When I fell on my arse I broke my tailbone. WTF? Why do I have a tailbone and why is it so easy to break it? And then after I broke it I was told that nothing could be done for it that wouldn't make it hurt worse. It hurt for TEN YEARS. What kind of "intelligent" designer would give us tails that you can't even see and then make them hurt like crap? Despite designing perfect people they sometimes come out with real tails. Sometimes their spines are outside their bodies. Sometimes they have no legs or hands or feet. WTF? That's pretty stupid design. Would you let him design your car? or your 747? I wouldn't let him design a dishcloth.
