Truck Fump: The Lord appears to be a bit of a dick...


One of the things that causes me no end of humor is the idea that God must be a benevolent god.

Why *MUST* that be true?  I've read the Bible, several times in fact, and if you read the Old Testament, it's pretty clear God is a malevolent asshole.

It's also pretty clear, if you read the New Testament, that Jesus was an attempt at garnering some good PR for God.  And apparently it worked.

But everyone who is religious assumes that God or Yahweh or Allah is a benevolent God, with very little evidence.

A bit of an ironic headline, given that the lack of an explanation for the Cambrian "explosion" has been an argument against evolution used by creationists since its discovery. Instead, the inevitable happened, and older and smaller fossils of squishier ancestors were discovered.
