Yeah. The perfect and perfectly compassionate deity demands a perfectly perfect amount of blood, guts and pain to be in a perfectly forgiving mood of perfection.<quoted text> He like nails .
It is a perfect deity. It must be placated, and only by what satisfies its perfectly compassionate and perfect sensibilities. Torture, nails, blood, pain, suffering and death are its perfectly reasonable demand.
It' isn't human, after all, and can't forgive with no retribution or a "price" being paid. It decided it could only be satisfied with a sacrifice of itself to itself.
It missed a grand opportunity back during the Noachian deluge. It could have had all of the above, and then just drowned itself in a mini flood somewhere in a deep hole.
I guess that was too perfect.
