A) If my son chooses to get drunk and drives off a cliff, it isn't me who is killing him. It is his own free will despite all my efforts.
- You knew your son was prone to drunk driving.
- You knew he'd been drinking.
- And when he was drunk, heading out the door, you handed him the keys to the car instead of saying no.
God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent - it says so right there on the label! Don't you think he'd be able to politely inform your son that he's had enough and he's not going anywhere until he sleeps it off?
Honestly. Is your god so weak?
B) Pointless for God, not pointless for you.
In what way? The free will to choose between fawning worship and eternal death? "Love me or I will set you afire?" Honestly. What sort of entity offers only the dichotomy of 'cake or death'? My way or the highway! DIE INFIDEL!
No, thank you. Besides, your God doesn't give anyone free will - and if you assume he didn't create Adam, Eve, and the Serpent, no matter how metaphorical it all is, without knowing what would come of all of that, and without pointing out to people that had no conception of right and wrong (after all, wasn't the tree representative of that?) what 'wrong' is... well, y' know? You're something of a fool.
Your god MADE the very evil you claim is man's fault, in full foreknowledge of what would come of it, by your own mythology. Is he so powerless as to not have been able to make it another way?
C) Show me the scientific (fossil) connection between an ape and a bear.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_universal_ancestor
- look at the cladogram to the right.
Bluntly, your lack of knowledge of genetics, evolutionary theory, and current biological understanding does not combine with your incredulity to make anything remotely resembling a real point. If you'd like to know when apes separated from bears, I'd suggest reading up on it. You might just be astounded.
For instance, did you know that we can pinpoint the moment when 'humanity' became chromosomally distinct? True story! We know when your greatgreatgreat(adinfinitum)grandfather became a new sort of primate!
But. Until you understand that you don't even have the basis from which to understand the data, there's almost no point, wouldn't you say?
