" We all just give our opinions from our own experiences or borrowing other people's experiences and the interpretations thereof... "
Tee Hee indeed.
Anyways ... about the gods, incl. the biblical one, we've attached to them god knows what but forgot to make sure those characteristics and feats would not conflict, or worse; directly contradict each other. Darn! And thus ... ad hoc reasoning has to come in.
Gods, incl. the biblical one, are particulary interesting in reference to human projection, which, of course, is what the gods consist of: human projection, usually wishful thinking - no matter how twisted.
I mean, really, when the god of choice happens to like and dislike the same things you do .... what's the mystery here?
So, it's no coincidence the gods possess human traits, perhaps even all human traits imaginable; and then some more: magic, which, of course, poses no problem because the gods aren't likely to materialize and flaunt their puff the magic dragon powers around are they now?
People can be incredibly smart and wiggle their way out of seemingly impossible situations through reasoning, be it fallacious, abductive, inductive; especially believers-in whatever ... but ... there is one thing these smart humans always forget to think of, or so it seems; it's not what you do say, it's what you do not say.
The same goes for the gods; it's not what "the gods say/said", it's what the gods do not/did not say - more appropriately: what the gods fail(ed) to mention: the blatant omissions.
All through the ages in which the gods were credited with all these human traits, magic and what not, these smart humans forgot, to this very day, to attach one particular to any of the gods, without exception. None of the gods mentioned it; ever. Yet, it exists - and its intrinsic nature renders it self-evident the gods are human projections; concoctions, and only that.
Can you guess what it is?
-it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does after all, truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true - everything else ... mere conjecture-
