Yahweh obviously made some kind of big mistake, and wants some other people to come up with ideas on how to fix it. That's the only plausible reason that he would need our help.

The lunatic fringe of Christianity, claim that "God is outside time" - they have no idea what this means but it explains why "created in 6 days" really means "created in billions of years"

As a consequence, you would have to explain whether by "all day" you mean "God's day" or "our day".

A further difficulty arises when we consider heaven: are there days and nights in heaven? For there to be day and night, there would have to be a star around which the planet "Heaven" orbited (or as we say in Biblical terms, "The star, made of burning coal, which goes round Heaven.")

However, this, itself has difficulties: nowhere is it indicated that "Heaven" is on a planet, nor that God requires illumination -> after all, when he made the earth, etc, he must have started in the dark.

A lot of God's timeless time is taken up with answering, ignoring and postponing answers to prayers.  If each person on earth gives one prayer a day, God has 1/7 billionth of a day[1]  to grant, reject or postpone the prayer whilst all the time considering what the effect of any of these actions will be upon the future plan for Armageddon - one false move and He's screwed.

On the seventh day, he rests: I assume that this means that all prayers on Sundays are either backlogged or ignored - as an atheist, I like to think that, on Sundays, they are ignored however vital they may be.

Good point. The ancient people who created stories about him never thought that far into their fairy tales.
Enough with your bullshit.

If I'm made in his image, then He's going to be doing an awful lot of self pleasuring in his free time.
Matthew 10:22 "and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved." - An example of a clearly demonstrably false biblical 'prophesy'.

The biblical myth of a 6000 year old Earth is proven false by the Gaia satellite directly measuring star age.

It has done / is doing / will do whatever Its omniscience forces it to do.

The cool part is that it has no hand in determining what it does. It's supposed to be eternal, without beginning, which means there is no point were it didn't know everything it would do. So it never makes a decision, never makes a choice, and that means it is not the author of its actions.

I wonder what is?

In the Bible, YHWH mass-murders, well... everything for kicks, sniffs burning goat or whatever, asks a father to murder his son, makes bets with the Devil where the Devil is allowed to do pretty much everything, as long as it doesn't kill one guy, and impregnates virgins. YHWH knows what else it does in its spare time.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

This god is said to exist in eternity which I take to be somewhere where there is no time. So it follows that -

Before creation
Well the word 'before' means nothing unless there was time and we have seen that god doesn't experience time in eternity. Consequently the expression 'before creation' is meaningless.

During the Existence of our Universe Same answer as above. Although we experience time god doesn't so the question has no meaning. Prayers, by the way, are simply ignored in favour of letting what happens happen - Que Sera, Sera - neatly explaining why prayers provide the results we see.

After Revelation As above answers. Of course Revelation was written before 150CE so that, more or less, the last 2,000 years are in this period though, of course, god doesn't experience it.



Maybe what god does it to be Existence itself. He's sure not that active anyway.
No testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such that its falshood would be more miraculous than the facts it endeavours to establish. (David Hume)

Well shoot, no wonder he invented angels to praise him, the universe sex, war and human drama..... poor guy was bored and he doesn't have a body to experience existence so he made us so he could "feel" something .


the eternal question of existence right there... ...god was bored with himself.

Because those are not the questions that kept them up at night. It is always uncomfortable accepting one's own ignorance, but this discomfort is much stronger for certain "big" questions. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Is this all there is? What happens when I die? Those are the questions for which many would rather have false answers than no answers. It doesn't matter if those answers only move the question one step further away from them. Why is God here? What is his purpose? What does he do when he's not creating the universe, answering prayers, or smiting sinners? Those are questions for which ignorance is easier to accept, and maybe even desired because not asking any more questions makes it easier to maintain comforting belief in the answers that they've already invented.

This explains quite a bit.

In the distant past, god had a direct and undeniable presence in the world.  He took an active role in shaping the direction of the world.

Today, he does not do such a thing.  He is absent from the world.

His engagement in reality has been inversely proportional to the amount of available pornography in the world and the ease of access of that content.  Back in the 1800s, god still had some direct interaction and, presumably, still had a hand in the development of human society.  Today, not so much.  I contend that the reason is that he has already fulfilled his purpose for reality - internet pornography.

He doesn't need to use any of his free time interacting with humanity anymore - he's got the pr0n and is now...busy.
"When we landed on the moon, that was the point where god should have come up and said 'hello'. Because if you invent some creatures, put them on the blue one and they make it to the grey one, you f**king turn up and say 'well done'."

"God is outside time"

If God is outside time, then are we inside time? Suddenly I feel like I'm in a (zoo) cage.

Why would God trap humankind inside time?  Dose that destroy the free will theory?

According to my roommate, Yahweh is doing "my mom" all day. I don't know whether or not to be offended.

SkyDaddy spends his day making sure that some athletes win the big contest, assists certain musicians in writing and recording an award winning album, finds car keys, frequently lands your airplane safely after a turbulence filled flight, watches people masturbate, and turns a deaf ear to children who are praying to him to stop some guy from molesting them.

Busy guy, that Bibegod.
