    God works in mysterious ways is the just a huge cop out, a cheap way of attempting to create an excuse of why things are the way they are.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Re: Did God Create Perfection?

    Perfection is subjective; so what is the method of measure for perfection?

    What if there is no 'god' - then who or what is responsible for the perceived measure of perfection?

    Its up to either up to the individual or the general consensus of society I would imagine. But it seems we are to busy killing each other based on who and how we worship as opposed to what is perfect.

    You should read the first few chapter of the old testament (the book of genesis). Its not that long. I am not saying it will change your mind, but I think you fundamentally misunderstand how christianity approaches this topic.

    I'm still curious as to why he needs us to believe in him, isn't living a life in which you treat others well with respect good enough to go to Heaven? I picture the whole God situation being like Monsters Inc.

    He needs belief to fuel the massive consumption of electricity in Heaven!!

    If you are really curious you should read the bible. It tells you these things, as far as te why you have to believe in him and not just be a good person. It is another important part of understanding christianity.

    Sorry, I was responding to the bold. I don't think you'll find much about monsters inc and electricity in heaven in the bible.
