As an agnostic, I have come to the point where I have contemplated the fact that if there was a god entity capable of creating the universe as well as you and I, and that that entity is self aware, and not some inert phenomena, then what if it isn't perfect? I believe that it is a prevalent notion amongst human beings, for reasons I don't fully understand that God must be perfect. Once you start to consider that all of this could possibly have been made by an imperfect entity, some things can make sense. your thoughts?
Which religion's god?
And what do you mean by perfect?
And why consider that there was an entity required to make the universe?
Why does an imperfect entity make more sense than a perfect one - and how do you know the difference?
A universe creating pixie makes sense if you endow it with the qualities needed to answer unanswered questions.
It's obvious to me the there is no logic in creator beings. Once you start asking questions, that becomes more and more obvious. I feel like people only cling to the idea out of fear or for comfort. Some people are completely perturbed with the idea that life is temporary and they'll never have all the answers. Once you get passed that or become excited by question and change rather than frightened, you're really just left with no good reason to hang onto those ideas. Personally, I don't understand agnosticism. Thinking there's not enough evidence to prove there isn't a god doesn't mean there may be one. It's just a human-contrived probability. It's easy to find the question when you know what your answer is. I'm not trying to be mean I'm just sharing my opinion. Any tone that may come across is just due to my sleepiness.
Once you understand that gods are human created then you understand there's no point in inventing a god who is a klutz. The gods are always everything we wish we could be: dependent on no one, never wrong, never lacking for knowledge and power and understanding, totally virtuous. If such a god has us in its back pocket and is there to benefit us, then it has utility, at least in concept. A god that's less than perfect is not perfectly helpful and not worth emulating. Also, it makes it harder to claim that your god is better than my god, or is a maximal threat to other tribes that might make war on you.
The inconvenient problem is that the universe and our experienced reality don't look at all like they are under any sort of control, much less benevolent and prescient control.
Well that rules out the God of Abraham. Omnipotent and perfect. (Somehow can't find this omnipotence or this perfect). I don't assume things without evidence. If there is, then it certainly does not appear to be one that humans have contrived.
