Canaan Part 1
In the beginning the gods and I decided to create other beings. We debated on how they should act, how their mortality is handled, and in what conditions can they live. Each god was given an assignment on what to handle. Of course I gave everyone their duties and led the order of creation. The creation began with the formation of the Earth but was formless and empty.
El: Let there be light!!! It looks good. Now I will form darkness and it will be separate from the light. The light shall be called day and the Dark will be called night. We will create more as the days pass since it will set a precedent of time for our creation. Each day will repeat to create order.
Baal: Father, we must create land and water so there will be livable space for these beings. If you expect order then we must do this.
El: You are right my son. This will be done in the second day. Gather the other gods so we may create all of these living beings.
And so the first day passed. A very short day to be honest. Loo
Common abrahamic excuses that hold little waterCommon abrahamic excuses that hold little water2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
"God gaves us free will, ergo it's pur own fault": Except that the Bible nor the Qu'ran put emphasis on free will. Hell, this excuse is so very recent, that, until a few centuries ago, the idea that God had absolute control over our lives was very popular.
"Its our fault; Adam and Eve's sin created evil, not God!": If you have read Genesis, you'll know this is bullshit (Hell, even Yahweh admits he created evil!). Likewise, at no point is the first sin ever considered a "Pandora's Box" situation.
"God is goodness incarnate! Evil is against his nature!":...have you even read the Bible? Yahweh is also considered to not be goodness incarnate until the NT and Qu'ran; in the OT, he is treated as a Lawful Neutral agent.
"Your're putting everything out of context!": Considering I actually bother to read the Bible/Qu'ran, while you only cherry pick passages your pastor dictates...
"He died for your sins! You should be grateful!":
1- His sacrifice was pointless, He only rescued saints from Sheol

My name is El. I am the god of the Canaanites, or at least I was. Many of you have forgotten about me because my son betrayed me. Of course all of you know my son as he is worshiped my many. You may know him as I am, I am Who I am, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Lord, The God of Israel, or simply God. So how did I end up here. I had wife named Asherah who was the most beautiful being in existence and had a total of 70 children. We lived peacefully but I felt at the time that we should create other beings since we thought that since we had the power, why not use it to make something good. Of course you all know the story and how it went bad. I can't say that I'm completely blameless since I didn't stop these things from happening. Unlike my son, I don't claim to be all powerful or all knowing. Well this is my story...
Fuck this shit. I'm coming out of the closet.I'm coming out as a conservative. I realized that liberals and left wingers are nothing but lazy hippies who do not contribute shit. My favorite President is Ronald Reagan and this is in response to Jonathan Krohn coming out as liberal http://www.bing.com/search?q=Jonathan+Krohn+turned+Liberal&go=&qs=n&form=QBRE&pq=jonathan+krohn+turned+liberal&sc=3-16&sp=-1&sk=. Well I can change my mind too and I decided that you guys should get your own healthcare, companies should self regulate, and I support the war in Afghanistan. I am not voting for Mitt Romney but I will vote for Virgil Goode http://www.bing.com/search?q=Virgil+Goode&go=&qs=n&form=QBRE&pq=virgil+goode&sc=8-12&sp=-1&sk= of the Constitution party http://www.constitutionparty.com/ who is a true conservative who can return us to our biblical roots.
