    Why do some people consider the possibility of obtaining and being all that God is so ridiculous?

    Good question, but as no one really knows what god is for sure, no one can know if it's possible or not.

    I would say that ANYTHING is possible, but not achievable. To know the answers to some questions we must change the way we are, and the way we observe things. I do not think that kind of change is easy to make.

    In the Christian tradition Satan desired to be all that God is and was consequently thrown out of heaven.

    Christians by and large view the idea of obtaining and being all that God is Satanic in origin and essence.

    Not ridiculous so much as sacreligious.

    "In the Christian tradition Satan desired to be all that God is and was consequently thrown out of heaven."

    Rev. 3:21
    "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."

    As a benevolent ruler, God wants us to gain everything that He has. As a father, God wants to become everything that He is. Being the children of God, we are naturally capable of both. Those who suggest otherwise do so because they believe that God is a tyrant whose power relies upon oppression.

    Satan's sin was not what he wanted but the manner in which he sought to attain it. That is how sin works: It is always the result of a desire for something that is good on some level combined with an unwillingness to follow the necessary steps of attaining that good end. Satan wanted to attain God's glory without subjecting himself to God's prescribed method of doing so - passing through this life of trial that we currently know.
