    God did no such thing, there is no God!!!!!!! God is a stupid idea created by idiotic humans thousands of years ago who needed an excuse to why that rock fell off of the ledge. There answer the Wind God, and later it evolved into a less primative belif that there is one god who controls all, which is still false!!!!! God did not create ME!!!!!!

    For the benefit of free will. If he made everyone believers, then we would be simplified angels (I think).

    I have trouble believing that God would sacrifice the well-being of his creation for the sake of "free will."

    Exactly. Except free will isn't compatible with omniscience, but try convincing a devout believer that God cannot be omniscient while giving humans free will.

    the real answer is he didn't, but since that's not funny

    it's because sometimes clingy people annoy him. and since he got himself crucified it's easy to see he's also masochistic :lol:

    The old "blame it on the devil" routine. That doesn't wash either, as it was God who created the devil.

    You are thinking 4-dimensionally there. God has at least 2, and perhaps an infinite number of dimensions of time, in which to operate. God already exists in the year 3005, 6005, 9005, etc. This is why He knows the choices of our free will; He is already far beyond the time the choice was made. Knowing said choice, and fixing said choice, are 2 different things. But try convincing a devout disbeliever in the supernatural of this... :rolleyes:

    That assumption is one that demands a certain belief. Not even all christians could agree that god is already knows our choices. :rolleyes:

    take it the next step man. he created the devil to express his self-repressed evil desires. goes to say that since he created man in his image, some part of him hates himself - as people often do. so he created atheists to add that balancing factor to his creation.

    hehe, yeah i know mate, some people are just plain stupid :D
    come on people! think about it! :)

    Yeah, great. Explain away the problem of evil with a bit of the old "abracadabra." How very convenient.
