Default Inane questions for Yahweh.

Why are you male?

If there are no other gods but you, why would you need a penis?

Any further insane questions?

If you are a good god, why does the devil seem gooder than you?

Why do men have nipples, and why do we have toenails? What are they for, scratching our calves?

If women are inferior, why don't we accept our lot? (Don't give me any 'Satan's influence' crap. You created him.)

Now ask me why you can't keep all of your penis.... for that, I have no good answers.

Could it be, could it be...Elyon?
Quote:
The name ʿElyōn 'Most High' standing alone is found in many poetic passages, especially in the Psalms.

It appears in Balaam's verse oracle in Numbers 24.16 as a separate name parallel to Ēl.

It appears in Moses' final song in Deuteronomy 32.8 (a much discussed verse). A translation of the Masoretic text:

When the Most High (ʿElyōn) divided nations,

he separated the sons of man (Ādām);
he set the bounds of the masses

according to the number of the sons of Israel
Many Septuagint manuscripts have in place of "sons of Israel", angelōn theou 'angels of God' and a few have huiōn theou 'sons of God'. The Dead Sea Scrolls fragment 4QDeutj reads bny ’lwhm 'sons of God'('sons of 'Elohim'). The NRSV translates this as "he fixed the boundaries according to the number of the gods". This passage appears to identify ʿElyōn with Elohim, but not necessarily with Yahweh. It can be read to mean that ʿElyōn separated mankind into 70 nations according to his 70 sons (the 70 sons of Ēl being mentioned in the Ugaritic texts), each of these sons to be the tutelary god over one of the 70 nations, one of them being the god of Israel, Yahweh.

Especially as the devil only killed ten people, seven sons and three daughters of Job. Compared to the vicious god of the Bible who killed millions. Here's another inane question; Is Satan a god? He seems to have all the qualities.

Why do you make some souls totally insane psychopaths like Charles Manson who have to be locked up all their lives? And then they go to hell.

Did Hitler get to forever be with you in heaven?

Are you bored?

Why don't you tell us how you create a soul? Are you jealous of our technical prowess?

Why can't we run around in the nude? It's a free country for chrissakes.
