Seriously, he tortures people for all of eternity because they think differently than the way he wants them to think. I dislike people for insulting others. I could never praise him. If I believed in him, the best emotion I could summon would be extreme dislike.

Yes, it's a tired and old argument, but it's still true.

No no no. He doesn't torture people. He just allows them to be tortured. BIG difference, especially when you're an omnipotent, omniscience, omnibenevolent god.

But let's look at the whole story, shall we?

This god created people, then punished those people disobeying him when they didn't have any idea of the concept of right or wrong (since gaining said knowledge was what they were being disobedient about) then decided to punish all of their descendents for this transgression.

Then, like a three-year old that didn't take a nap (or a bored SimCity player) wiped the slate clean (almost), but that really didn't fix anything.

So, in the ultimate of all Hail Mary plays, he raped a virgin in order to give birth to himself and then deliberately induced his creation to kill himself so that he could create a loophole in his own rules to spare his creation from being tortured by some of his other creations.

You see, it all makes sense if you don't think about it.

Seriously. Don't think about it, your nose'll start bleeding.

It's all because they can't view it objectively. They're biased because so many other people believe in God's goodness, so how could they all be ignorant, right? The simple fact that most Christians were brought up that way and that most people they know believe in Christianity is enough to blind them from the true nature of their God.

But yeah, he is pretty much a total jerk. As Richard Dawkins said:
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

PC. It's a old school RTS game.

Ah, I see. The only RTS games I've played on the PC are Command and Conquer and Starcraft 1 + 2. I've never been a big PC gamer.
