Why the Christian god is manmade #1
I have good friends, ostensibly educated, who believe in the literal truth of the universal flood at the time of noah. Despite the fact that there are 35,000 known species of spiders alone, with likely at least that many out there still to be discovered. The old testament also conflicts with common sense, for those that posses it, even in such obvious observations that the highest intelligence in the universe probably would have come up with a better solution to young boys teasing a prophet regarding his hair-loss, than to bring bears out of the woods to maul them (yes, that's in the bible[2 Kings 2:23-25]). Surely the Christian conception of god as a being who would order moses to kill all of the canaanite children would not reasonably qualify as a proper conception of higher intelligence.
