    Is God Evil?
    There's an implicit "praise me or I'll send you to an eternity in Hell" rule that makes Hitler look like Mother Teresa in comparison.

    Can we overthrow him?
    Luckily, he merely exists within people's mind, so a massive brainwash should be enough.

    How dare you defy the almighty power of God! You will invoke his wrath so that he summons another great flood to wash all of your dirty wiskedness away. Heaven has no place for the unworthy.

    No and No.

    This is a little like saying is gravity evil and can be overthrow it.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    Gravity and God

    When we travel into Space, we float free from gravity; and as we learn about the world, we float free from God.

    When you travel into space you perceive that you are free of gravity, but the reality is that gravity is working on a much higher level than you perceive and you are really being pulled at many many miles per hour around the sun and the milky way. Likewise, a little learning about the world might make you feel that there is no God and anyway you have no need for him, but you have no idea how big God really is and how much he is doing in your life while you supposedly float free of him.

    Is this the same God who ordered Abraham to tie up his son Isaac and then slaughter him? Is this the same God who tortured his own son, Jesus, to death?

    C'mon, your God is a compulsive and repetitive child abuser.

    Your God is the nightmare of childhood.

    Good luck with that, the harm that's coming to is avoidable.

    A little learning inclinith a mind towards atheism, although a lot of learning disinclinith it, or something like that, Francis Bacon, before the athiests hijacked science

    I think that's your God is the nightmare of childhood Victor, no one believes the one dimensional horse shite the athiests peddle and you've taken in hook, line and sinker.

    What about man? God wasnt weilding any knife, it was Abraham, God didnt hammer any nails or weild any whips, in order for any of that too make sense there was always the sovereignty of the individual and all those perpetuating lies or evil can at any and all times choose not to.
