Third Time Lucky

It always struck me as peculiar that Yahweh would build a world, then smash it in a giant flood, like some petulant child tearing up a drawing he was unhappy with. If he were perfect, omniscient and omnipotent as advertised, surely he could get his universe the way he wanted it the first time.

However, he is not the only god with this failing. The gods of the Aztecs created the universe five times before they got one they were satisfied with.

Source of Belief

Where does a belief in god come from? It comes from somebody else, usually older, selling the idea. Where do they get the idea? From somebody else. If you keep following this chain you will eventually get to someone who just made it up. Where else could it have come from?

Where do scriptures come from? They are written by people who either claim to speak for a god or who are so deluded that they believe are taking dictation from a god. In either case, these are not the sort of people you would trust to babysit your kids or construct the rules of your society.
