If the old and new testament god are one and the same, then he must suffer from dissociative personality disorder.

The New Testament god isn't a lot nicer.... Jesus still endorses slavery....

@Lizard_of_Ahaz Definitely not the polar opposite, but still too different. Too much change for an omniscient god.

Dawkins is so right about this. It amazes me that everyone who reads the bible doesn't see it.

Their needs differ from yours, Dan. Why the amazement?
My needs also differ from yours; I read Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised. Be amazed.

@yvilletom I'm duly amazed, and I compliment you on your stamina. But unless the Roberts revisions are a lot more radical than I imagine, they don't propose worshiping a being that orders massacres of entire populations, including men, women, children and animals. Worshiping such a creature is symptomatic of something more, shall we say "complex," than different needs.

@dan325 I hope you don’t need reasons more complex than “different needs”.

I needed reasons more complex than alcoholism or mental illness to explain my parents’ violence. They, the reasons, are too long and complex to tell here; the short story is that my parents were “players” in a tragedy they had not made. They deserved better than they got.

Are you sure he wasn't describing trump?

Trump isn't a fictional character.

@Hages As a president he is... 😊
