    So then, is it your contention that Dung Beetles are greater than Man?

    It's multi-generational and institutionalised child abuse. The Catholic Church has no right to exist.

    People choose famine? People choose earthquakes? I guess you’re saying god is powerless....or maybe sadistic?

    All men/women are born into sin. All men are both good and evil. To what extent that evil exists is the exercise of free will of which God gave to us. God created us and therefore is the master of all things.

    Who creates the sand castle? The grains of sand or the hands that shape it? Whom can destroy it? The grains of sand or the hands that shaped it? What are we but grains of sand when compared to the God whom created the grains of sand? What do we know of the castle's final design or why it came to be?
    You could have answered the question before preaching for your genocidal son murdering God.

    Only a fool of a God will created someone he knows he will condemned to hell, after he does all his pre-programmed evil of course.

    Note how your vile God allows Satan to go about doing her will with us.

    You might want to read up on Jung and Freud's Father Complex before you ignore your own inner ape and how you follow it's instructions for survival to you.

    So much for the so called sacrifice of Jesus.

    To your first, if you are talking of the supernatural fantasy God that men have created, I agree as those human writers no longer exist.

    If you are talking of men/Gods, then I cannot agree as to make that God more powerful and improve upon him, all we need do is recognize the other men/Gods and there you have it. A more powerful God.

    To think of God as anything but created by men is quite foolish.

    I have no respect for Christianity and Islam but I cannot deny the small amount of good they have done.
    That good is not much though when you look at the evils they have brought to mankind.
