I said...
"two different manifestations of god"
not "two gods"...the problem seems to be that you can't read properly.lol
So you get to choose which type of your god you want? really?

i love how you cult members twist your religion into whatever you want it to be for you...how convenient...

Well, think about it dude. That Hebrew culture was following the same supposed God that you worship today. After reading the Old Testament at a fairly early age I said no way I'm going to follow such an evil God.

And at 9 or 10 years old I was thinking all those stories from the OT were lies. The Bible is a truly BAAAD book

So you are a godbot and not aware of the roman propaganda.
But apart from that: chapter and verse.

Let's go literal too.
We are talking here about a chap that did not even wash his hands before eating from the shared dish.
Talk about cholera etc.

IS THE OLD TESTAMENT INSPIRED?

If it is, it should be a book that no man — no number of men — could produce.

It should contain the perfection of philosophy.

It should perfectly accord with every fact in nature.

There should be no mistakes in astronomy, geology, or as to any subject or science.

Its morality should be the highest, the purest.
Its laws and regulations for the control of conduct should be just, wise, perfect, and perfectly adapted to the accomplishment of the ends desired.

It should contain nothing calculated to make man cruel, revengeful, vindictive or infamous.

It should be filled with intelligence, justice, purity, honesty, mercy and the spirit of liberty.

It should be opposed to strife and war, to slavery and lust, to ignorance, credulity and superstition.

It should develop the brain and civilize the heart.

It should satisfy the heart and brain of the best and wisest.

It should be true.

Does the Old Testament satisfy this standard?

Reading the christian version i totally agree.

I recall reading the quraan for the first time.
I do not throw books away nor burn them, but i gave it to a charity after writing on the side !EVIL

Later i discussed every verse, even up to the grammar used.

So i've been over it 3 times in total.
But only with actual knowledge of the hebrew bible i could point out gross errors.(thus not just that the story digresses)Because it does contain a lot of christian ideas.

that's not an answer. You have to describe what constitute God first and foremost.
I don't know what would constitute god. Are we talking a creator god, "spinoza's god," alien life that is sufficiently advanced so as to be indistinguishable from a god, etc?

Anyways, since you are the one who appears to be in possession of evidence, it's up to you to define god as you see fit and then support this god.

So it's not, because it is a tribal book with a god that lives through waht the tribe lives through. Which is entirely unprecedented. Therefore it never claims absolute truth.

That truth and monotheism is all part of christianity as empire. Ditto for islam that was also invented for empire building. As was PAX for the Roman empire.

Energy is necessary for life, I think it would be inaccurate, or at least misleading, to say that it "creates" it.

But I did mention that it depends on how you define "life"
a battery has life, a car engine has life, an equipment has life, etc.
Everything in the universe has life. A star dies and a star is born. But we don't define this life in biological terms.
That word... I don't think it means what you think it means.

I guarantee to you, sir, that any adults who do reproduce have, in fact, a sex.
I dunno. That's a pretty controversial opinion.
