God Didn’t Like His First Creation
The Bible says that God created all things and saw that they were good. It seems to me that God should have known, in advance, that they would have been good (or not) and he wouldn’t have had to wait to “see” the result of his creation. To me, this implies that God could not anticipate the results and thus the Creation was an experiment!
A prime example of this in the Bible is the Flood Story. According to the Bible, God saw that his Creation was no longer good and so decided to destroy what he had created and start over (with Noah). It was, in effect, a complete reversal of his original Creation. Again, why hadn’t God known that his creation was going to turn out this way and if he did why did he create it in the first place….unless it was an experiment.
The same thing is true with respect to Satan. Why would God knowingly create an evil being…unless Satan was the result of an experiment that God couldn’t anticipate the outcome of. Therefore, one could easily come to the conclusion that the creation of life was a process of trial and error. As a general rule, God could not intervene without invalidating the experiment.
How else could one explain the complete lack of logic in God’s actions, at least the God as defined by theology. Unless of course, God, as we have come to believe in Him, is not really God, the Prime Creator. That alone might explain a God who created evil, a God who was not omniscient and a God who would willingly destroy his own Creation. Please explain to me again why we pray to such a god?
