Woe is God.

Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! Micah 2:1
Thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil. Micah 2:3

Caught red-handed ! Surely the evil doer ought to be put to death ! Everybody must get stones !

Surely you mean "Woden is God. ;-)
Thanks, I'm back to normal now!

If there were no evil in your world let me tell ya I'd be bored out of my skull.

It took me two verses, just two verses, to depart from my own divine decree... not sure if this is my personnal record though.

Steve, whoever you are, I was browsing the internet looking for something on free will, and i stumbled upon your blog... What a refreshing experience... my first contact with you was the 50 reasons why we should 'unfriend' Jesus... got a good laugh at that... I was born an raised in a Christian family, but I do question a lot, and I do value open and inquisitive minds like yours. You have done a marvelous job and research.

C.D., welcome to the blog. Sam Harris has a new book on free will (http://www.samharris.org/free-will ), which I haven't read yet, but might be of interest to you. Steve Wells has a good book ("Drunk with Blood") and a great Bible resource ("Skeptic's Annotated Bible"), which might be off the free-will topic... though there are references to god "hardening" peoples' hearts (eg, Pharaoh in "exodus") which kind of takes away their free will.
Anyway, I hope you find interesting things to think about on Steve's blog.
