      About the same thing I think of all the other thousands of gods invented by man over the millenia, whether it be Shiva, Thor, Huitzilopochtli or Naiyenesgani.  An interesting look at our ancestors as they struggled to understand, calm their fears of the unknown and, always, support the priesthood.

      It's rather sad that modern man continues to make up belief structures instead of actively searching for knowledge of our world, but it is what it is.  It's a lot of work to actually learn and understand (and we've progressed so far that no one person can know it all) - lots easier, and far more comforting, to make up our own stories that also serve to calm our irrational fears.

        The problem is not actually "God". The problem is actually inside all of us. Hint: Why human beings believe 'anything' at all?

          There is a strong evolutionary imperative to believe things with no evidence. It is a survival mechanism. Eventually it will wither as it becomes more and more a hindrance to human reproduction. This is why atheism is on the rise in most developed countries. "God" does not exist so "God" has never been the problem. People so out of tune with themselves is the problem.

            It becomes (extremely) difficult to differentiate between what is 'belief' and what is reality.


            It's quite like the scenario of convicting a president for a crime: Who has the power to legally punish the President of a nation? You may answer: "the Supreme court judge, by the power of constitution".

            But what if a 'constitution' itself is corrupt at its foundational level?

              Perhaps - some times - so what?



              It is nothing like this at all.

                  Not really looking for a conversation are you? You completely ignored what I said. Why do so many religionists do this? You ask a question and ignore any answers to tell us what is what.

                    I'm not calling you a 'religionist'.
