    I will start.

    God is creator of the heavens and the earth.

    Genesis 1:1

    God is plural. He says, "Let us....."

    Genesis 1:26

    God is the creator of humans.

    Genesis 1:27

    Your turn.

    No, dude. We already started. I started in the NT. I’m proving you don’t know anything about what Christians believe.

    So I am asking you a simple question.

    What is the meaning of the account of Christ in the storm?

    God was created by humans to explain things they could not. After a few generations of passing the myth down verbally someone decided to write it down. Suitably embellished of course.

    I am using the King James Bible. You are free to use any denominational interpretation as long as you have a scripture or scriptures to back up the claim.

    I am using the King James Bible but this is just a discussion. Other translations are ok.

    The best way to prove he’s not genuine is to ask him what each of the parables means.

    He doesn’t have a clue because he’s a fake.

    Yes. This is the god we are describing in this thread. Use Bible verses when asserting His attributes. His fictitious attributes aren't relevant in this discussion. Your descriptions have to come from the Bible. The Bible does not say God is invented by humans thus your comment was improper.

    Don't be silly.

    The whole fiction was made to convince people he does exist.

    There will be no no bible verses that say he doesn't.

    Dude. I am an atheist. Calm down. My objective is to accurately represent the god in the Bible.
