First topic message reminder :

QUESTION FOR CREATIONISTS

For the sake of this argument we must assume God was responsible for the creation of all life on Earth.    To put the question in the right perspective, a brief quote from Genesis:

Genesis 24: ‘And God went on to say “Let the earth put forth living souls according to their kinds, domestic animal and moving animal and wild beast of the earth according to their kind.” And it came to be.’

Now the scene is set for this serious question to our Creationist members:
If God was/is so powerful, able to create suns and planets, and all the life on Earth, why create dinosaurs then allow them to be exterminated from the planet about 65 million years ago? This event was believed to have been caused by a meteor 6 miles wide, (and a couple of others) slamming into Earth. Coupled with huge volcanic eruptions such events caused a change in the atmosphere, consequently responsible for a climate change making food resources in short supply and the ultimate death of the dinosaurs, coupled with poisonous gasses from the volcanic eruptions. This was exacerbated  due to thick dust  darkening the skies for a year or more causing the death and destruction of a lot of plant life as well as the dinosaurs.

As asked above, why did God allow this to happen and have to start all over again with different, new species of life? Surely with his power he could have stopped the meteors, or was it beyond his abilities, thereby making him not so powerful as portrayed and believed?

Over to you folks.

We said they are a problem where the Abrahamic god is concerned, because an emotional god is going to make mistakes and is prone to development and change- such a god then must have a starting point and cannot be eternal- and therefore not a god as the Abrahamic tradition would have us understand it.

For humans emotions are natural and as you say even helpful. But from a theological standpoint an emotional god raises issues.

If we are referring to God's impassibility then both of you are plain wrong about the Abrahamic faiths being the same.

Judaism: God is more political than emotional
Christianity: God (esp. In the form of Jesus) is emotional
Islam: God is not emotional


He (Allah) is pleased (98:-Cool. He (Allah) abhors those who reject Islam (40:10). Allah does not love those who reject Islam (30:45).


Those are human emotions.

Indeed Eilzel, in all 3 Abrahamic faiths the deities are very emotional to the point they are also insecure for the need of love from humans. I mean we create children out of the soul reason of love and would think any parent who killed any child because they failed to show love back to them would be barbaric. Yet when it comes to religion, you find religious people excuse this barbarity when a God does this.
