I know, I know, not the theist reply you were hoping for.
[Side note: First post here. Hoping i'm going to do well, my Dad showed my the forum and I'm excited.]
I personally believe that if God existed, then he would have created humans as a sort of experiment. Giving each little test tube of humankind a different personality and belief and whatnot, and then leaning back and watching. Raising little miniature Dahmers in a laboratory up in his Sky Palace, if you know what i'm saying?
I apologize if it makes no sense. I have strange thought processes at times. This thought came to me during a debate that a Mormon friend of mine started in Seminar [kind of like home room] today. The idea of a creepy old man in the sky watching as I type this scares me, though...
