: :One would guess that the traditional view of God would be that of a supreme being. Nearly all modern religions hold that God is a being that's all-knowing, all-loving, as well as all-powerful. However, you pose an interesting point. It seems very evident to atheist such as myself that the concept of God is merely that of a magnified man. For instance, many theists see life as a test, with the ultimate goal being that of entering heaven. But, why would an all-knowing being need to devise any type of test if he already knows how you're going to turn out? He's all-knowing. Such testing seems inconsistent for an omnipotent deity. However, humans run tests and experiment all the time.

***Yes, and once you put these generalities over to the side, what is left of each and every reigions god is a human being, "gods" anger, love, hate, change of heart, mistakes, pity, sorrow, playfulness, creativity, even lust. It is all there. So by definition it is one of perfection, but in (supposed) actions it is one of al to human imperfection. This is a natural outcome of gods creators bias, it could be no other way.
