However, that notion of justice you describe is entirely human. An omnipotent being that rules over the universe should be beyond such petty things: "You do right by me and you will fruitful, do otherwise and you will suffer." Might I point out that rotten fruit of america, hasn't fallen far from it's tree. It was founded on Christianity and colonialism based on "the white man's burden". These early pioneers viewed natives as primatives and exploited them. This argument is surely nothing against whether or not a deity actually exists, but why would [the christian] God reward such inequity the way Don explains? Don's opinions fail to recognized both sides of the situation. He sees the traditionnal Christain viewpoint very clearly, but misses everyone elses. It seems to me that Christianity has been the cause of much atrocity, as many others on this forum have previously described.
