    If we all came from the same Source, where did insecurity come from if not from the wellhead?

    I suppose one explanation would be that, just as we outgrow childish notions as adults, so does God transcend human frailties.

    I suppose the same place every other human emotion came from Frank.

    I figure insecurity, or inhibition comes from the frontal lobes of the brain. Because if I get drunk enough to wash away the inhibiting activity in the frontal lobes, I am a totally different person. A bit of a wild man.

    That "if" is so big, it's not even worth considering.

    Since we're self-aware beings made from the Universe itself, it must mean that God felt insecure, probably why it took 6 days

    Of course. Exodus already says this:
    "I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God".

    The context and the use of the indefinite article, tell us he's not the only choice.

    That was easy... :cool:

    If you're willing to ask this question and consider it a serious one, then you must also ask: since humans are evil, and humans came from god (according to you) is not god evil? You could continue like this for every attribute of man. Eventually you end up with a projection of our entirety humanity onto a deity, which is what we have now.
