Yes, you got it. There actually is no reason, only sadism.

Thats probably because dads been drinking again :(

My parents never punished me without first making damn sure I knew why they were doing it. Otherwise it's mere sadism.

You know, if I was a dictator, unworthyone would be my ideal citizen.

Or maybe your Dad was a moron.

To punish a child for something he doesn't understand is pure child abuse. If we don't understand why "God" is punishing people, then he should get his ass down here and tell us why, otherwise he's liable to get sued and have his children taken away.

There's a freakin' world of difference between a spanking and being *killed*.
11/19/2009 7:33:16 PM
god: 'Well....you just ain't ready to understand, son.'
unworthyone: 'Kill me so i can LOL'

Ah, so you acknowledge that your god imposes punishments on us for unfathomable reasons. Now please explain why you would put your trust in such an inscrutable deity. Since it clearly feels itself to be beyond human reasoning, how do you know that all the kissing up in the world will make any difference to it?
11/19/2009 8:49:22 PM
Well, my view of any father who does that is incredibly low. I'd find such actions by human beings despicable.
If I believed that this version of God existed . . . well, I don't know what I'd do . . . I'd probably start worshipping Satan or something.

GOD: "You've been bad!"
PEASANT: "No, God, please don't smite me!"
*god smites peasant*
GOD: "HAHAHAHAHA, have you learned your lesson yet peasant?... Peasant?... Hellooo? P-Peasant? Are... are you okay? Peasant... PEEEAAAASAAAANT!!!"
There's the flaw in your thinking

Worst Parent Ever?

Godbuster reminded me of Metal Gear Solid.
Oh, and the dad just has latent sadistic homosexual tendancies.

One of Richard Dawkins' fine arguments comes to my mind here.
In "The God Delusion", he argued that religion might be evolutionary only a by-product of something else. He was wondering: What could this "something else" be?
As a starting point, he proposed the hypothesis that evolutionary, children should unquestioningly accept everything as truth what their parents tell them. Evolutionary, this make sense: "Don't get near that water, no discussion!" (because there are crocodiles in it, but to explain this in detail would take too much time, in which the offspring could get eaten).
Unfortunately, this sub-program (accept without question everything what a figure of authority tells you) seems to be still wired in the adult brain, and obviously gets expoited by priests and other people who seek power over the people, by making them accept nonsense, and explaining this with "you just ain't ready to understand"
Religion seems to be nothing but a bug in the programming of the human brain.

So... God kills because he gets psychosexual gratification out of killing? Ew. As a non-Christian deist, that whole analogy makes me feel filthy, and question whether maybe I've been victimised by my spiritual experiences rather than their being the gifts they've always seemed.
...Nah. They may, as their username says, be an 'unworthyone', but I do my best to be a good human being. If there's a higher power (and going on my own personal experiences, which I know aren't worth a damn to anyone else, it's either that, organic brain malfunction or an undiagnosed mental disorder) then I'm not worried about being judged unworthy.

If spanking is meant as a punishment, then how is not explaining what the kid is being punished for going to achieve anything? The kid won’t know what he or she did wrong and is not any less likely to commit another offense. (Not that spanking is an appropriate method of discipline to begin with.)
If the spanking is meant as a display of love… Well, that’s usually associated with a form of love that is considered inappropriate between a father and offspring. And is downright sick, wrong, and illegal when the offspring is “just ain’t ready to understand.”

Example: Your dad spanks you. You ask why. He says because I love you. You say why.
'Well....you just ain't ready to understand, son.'
Lets continue this story:
The son becomes 18 years old, and flees home immediately. For the goodbye, he gives his father nothing but "The Finger".
His father is devastated, and asks why. His son simply replies:
'Well ... I could explain but you just don't understand anything. F*** you.'

'baitin for jesus
My dad told me it was to teach me that my decisions had consequences.
Your dad is an asshole.

The goal of punishment is to correct a problem behavior. Period.
You only punish when the child can make the mental connection between his or her behavior and the punishment. This requires you to explain, clearly, and in terms that they can understand, what they did wrong, and make certain that they understand what they can do to avoid punishment next time.
If the child is incapable of understanding why he is being punished or isn't told the reason why he or she is being punished, then the only lesson they learn is that they will be punished at random times for no discernible reason. Or to put it another way, the child learns that Mommy and Daddy hurt them whenever they feel like it.
In conclusion, if you sincerely believe this, than you may be the product of abuse, and I hope that you never have a child.

Except in this situation, it's more like smacking your kid with all your strength, completely at random. Kid asks why, and you say "You're not ready to know yet." Kid has no idea why he's being hit, and there's no rhyme or reason to determine why.

I'm sorry you had an abusive dad. Luckily many people don't, and feel no need to invent one.
