I think most of us are familiar with the book of Genesis and the Christian story of how God created the earth in six days and then rested on seventh. I have two problems with this.
First is the time frame. It took God, an omnipotent being, six days to create the earth? If God is omnipotent, why wasn’t the creation instantaneous? It doesn’t seem to be outside of the realm of God’s powers. After all, he said. “Let there be light” and bam, there it was, instantly. But it takes an omnipotent being the better part of a week to create one planet? Hmm.
And then he rested. Again, I have to question why an omnipotent being would need to rest at all. God gets tired? How is that even possible? Does God sleep? Why would an omnipotent being that exists beyond time and space need to rest?
This is just something that’s occurred to me as of late. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, other than to say religion is full of crap. Just tossing it out there into the ether, I guess.
