is god truly good? or is it just that we knew the definition of what good was and associated it with god?
perhaps 'God is Good' is like saying 'Water is Good'. Water does not have qualities of being good, but it is good because it sustains life. Thus if being god means being good, wouldn't being good mean being god? We are \"built in his image\".
fuckin fundies, go pick up a philosophy book once in a while.

What about the things god can't be assed about?

The great Spirit is good, and desires nothing, for it needs nothing. And no mortal fool has anything special to offer it, anyway.
The god-gamers have only learned to blur the distinction between good and evil.

Then it is not "good" in any meaningful way.

Strangely enough, your god's desires always seem to completely coincide with your own. There's never any healthy dissent or difference of opinion. We'll never hear you say things like:
"god wants everyone to repent, but I happen to disagree with him on that"
"I'm actually a-OK with homosexuals myself, but god says we have to persecute them so that's what we gotta do"
No, somehow the things god likes happen to be exactly what you like and the things he abhors whatever you find alien, weird or just icky.

So God can send me to Hell for preferring creamy peanut butter over chunky? What a douche.

So, good is to kill off every man, woman, child and ox in the country you have conquered? Good is to kill people for eating shellfish. Good is to send bears to maul disobedient kids. Good is to be petty and childish when it comes to other deities.
Evil is to let women decide whom to marry, what to do whit their own bodies. Evil is to tolerate other people and their faith or lack of faith. Evil is to live and let live.
Good to know...

What's his opinion on Vegemite ?

Well, that's all fine and maybe good except for this:
You people pretend there is a God you know, only from a book, and are allowed to speak for, demand for and command others therefrom. And that's total bullshit.

God, with desires? BLASPHEMY!
