You have that backwards woody, it's why WE have jealousy and pettiness. We were made in God's likeness. We came after Him. Does your kid possess your traits, or do you possess his. LOL!

I hold 4 Us patents on an engineered product using metallurgy and machine dynamics. To say that science isn't in my background is foolish. To say that evolution and God can't co-exist is also very foolish.
And I have never claimed that. But to insist that the myths of Genesis are true is far more foolish.

As I said, believing the myths of Genesis does not necessarily mean that you are an idiot. You simply cannot use science to defend them since they are demonstrably false.

Great, blaming God for the disobedience of His children. Well, we should bring back punishment for the parents of these horrendous children these days, since we can't hold them responsible for their own actions. Get ready to serve time and pay your kids' debts. LOL!
If you are going to claim your God exists then yes. He is at fault if he is both omnipotent and omniscient. It is only logical. Parents are responsible for their children until they are grown. You do have to pay your kids debts up until that point and parents are neither omniscient nor omnipotent. With more power comes more responsibility. So yes, your god is responsible for the sins of HIS creation.

That is of course if he exists at all. If he punishes his own creation for faults that he allowed them to acquire then he is immoral. If he punishes them forever for these minor flaws he is infinitely immoral.

A lot of atheists are atheists because they do not believe in an immoral god and all of the man made gods are immoral.

Yes, I was once as immature as you and bought into "herbalism" and "new age healing," I just grew out of my childish things, thus it never became delusion. You have not, thus your imaginary friend you call god is a delusion.

Hogwash!
I have been asking this question, how did the universe came into form, since we all know that, it was never a man made or mortal thing?
Ruling out the possibility of immortals or immortality is totally wrong or un-called for.
