Well, I really don't think "you all know" what I'm doing, since I'm trying to figure that out my own self! 😉 Please don't ever give up. If you want to know one thing about me know this; I never give up. I don't think you should either.
"..,you can always call me evil..."
Wouldn't do that. You're not evil. Satan is the personification of evil. People do things that can be said to be evil. I think it's a dangerous thing to assume someone, besides Satan, is evil in that sense.
You're asking me to acknowledge and attribute evil to a hypothetical situation. If it were merely a hypothetical I would have to agree. But that's not really what you're driving at is it?
You're convinced that God is not real, so the stories in the Bible to you are fictitious and mythological, and anyone that believes them is impoverished intellectually and morally when they fail to agree with your beliefs.
Something is wrong here wouldn't you agree?
