So, you can think of no way in which an all powerful God could deliver to all of mankind this important message. According to you and other Gods powers are endless. You have NO problem claiming this being created the entire cosmos. Universes and galaxies uncountable, distances unmeasurable, a cosmos who's scope we cannot begin to contemplate, yet he has trouble delivering an important message to all of mankind?...really?<quoted text>
In what way should God have delivered His message? Should He have waited for radio and satellite television to be invented? Should He just appear suddenly and without warning with a cosmic megaphone?
Should He use subliminal messages, dreams, visions?
What language should it be in? Every language or just the ones important to modern Western civilization?
In what time period should He appear? Should He appear just in our own time because we're the only people that matter? Are all those ancient bronze age goat herders unworthy of such an important message? Why should He just appear in China? Are only the Chinese people worthy?
Should He appear in human form or as a lion or as a penguin?
Should God forcefully (like a tyrant) compel men to write or subtly and peacefully? Should He tamper with their personalities or allow them to write in accordance with their capabilities and personalities?
Should He just stand up and make an announcement every 10 minutes and strike something with lightning? Should He ring a bell like a town crier from the 17th and 18th centuries?
Should He interrupt our favorite TV shows with live updates and assume that we'll all come flocking to His call?
How would you do it?
You don't understand how foolish this is. Are you telling me this all powerful being can come up with no better way to deliver this message than ancient texts? Ancient texts who by your own admission are veiled in Metaphor, and hidden meanings, who's true meaning must be deciphered from hyperbole?
I can imagine a God delivering this message to the Thriving enlighten culture like China, were his words would NOT be hidden in metaphoric bullshit. I'm not sure why it's not obvious to you that the bible was written by homophobic old men, given the childlike view of the universe and unceasing tyranny of a vengeful deity. Not being able to see the bible as being promoted by a self-serving male dominated bureaucracy deriving its authority from anonymously authored ancient tales and antiquated edits.
