    Why should the divine Creator(if he/she/it be existent) be concerned with human morality?
    Why should the Universal Cause be a dictator of right and wrong for an insignificant species living in an insignificant planet in the whole damn universe?
    More extensively, should the Supreme Divinity at all be classified right or good, by the tenets of human morality?
    Answer Kant scholars, why make God the Universal Cause but foster ethics in his name?

    If this is philosophical, you should accept that god exists, next that he is huge and monstrously powerful, that when his cakes don't rise he can smash them to bits and still love his cakes. Only then can you try to fathom god's concern about what we do in the bedroom, how to wipe, what to eat and whether we communicate with snakes or ants. What can we actually understand about the motives of a god who we invent, who we divest with any power that makes him infallible?

    It needn't be said that those assumptions about God are nothing but bogus. To add my bit to the last part-why invent a God or make him infallible? why not make the "Divine Father" pass the test of reason he seems to have endowed us with? Instead of saying God loves us and guides us on the right path, Why not ask, what is God like or is he there?

    Quoting my religion's holiest scripture-

    Rig Veda 10:129.6-7-
    Who really knows? Who will here proclaim it?
    Whence was it produced? Whence is this creation?The gods came afterwards.
    Whence this creation has arisen- perhaps it formed itself, or perhaps it did not-the one who looks down on it,in the highest heaven, only he knows -or perhaps he does not.

    Do you mean 'why would God bother with holding humanity to a moral standard?'

    Very good question which I'm not quite sure on the answer. Maybe it was just bored, but that's not my main issue, my main issue is the power that God is supposed to have. I feel as if God exists then due to its power it has a massive amount of control over humanity, with what it can do if you don't live to it's morals. I just hope that if God does exist, then it is a real & "good" God.

    Probably more like there being no way to tell what human morals (flexible as they are already) could mean to God, that it is misguided to ascribe him anything of the sort. It may be a bitter pill to swallow but had humanity always lived in the land of milk and honey and nothing would ever have got done. Anyway, we've only just come out of the jungle and these things can take time.

    Exactly, that is what I mean.
