"How did Susan B. Anthony feel about abortion? (Hint: she called it "child murder")." In her day it probably was.

It's not rage against god. It's opposition to those who play god.

"Yet we note that the Greek and Egyptian gods are no longer part of any culture." Doesn't matter. Are you implying culture keeps gods in existence? "Further, the Christian God consists of three Persons, each God in His own right, each with His own function within the Godhead, yet altogether they are one God." Doesn't matter either and it's not unique. The Egyptian gods went together in thees too, as I recall. The Greek gods each had their own function. This is normal for gods. "Wrap your head around that! :)" Sounds extra-biblical.

"Hundreds of other ancient stories affirm that number in their own Flood accounts." The Sumerian account -- from whom the Hebrews probably got the myth -- was a more moral version of it, imo. In that version the gods were not held blameless.

"What other choice did He have, except to wash it all away" The moral choice -- let humans fend for themselves. Just like with any other animal.

"Not quite. The account states that eight people were spared." Genocide: the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group. It doesn't have to be entirely effective to be classified as genocide. Do you prefer mass murderer? "Does not the Potter have the right to shape the clay as He sees fit-even unto destroying it?" Are humans pots? I might ask you if parents have the right to kill their children. Normally I think you'd say no.

"Really? You, don are in favor of the right to have unborn children torn to pieces in order to 'solve' the 'problem' of said child's inconvenience to his parents, potential criminality and so forth." Another typical lie of yours. I'm in favor of a woman's right to control her own body. I'm not in favor of killing every single fetus on the planet. Try to keep some shred of honesty.

" I always distrust those who claim to know what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires ". Susan B. Anthony . Exactly right. They self-worship.

"An angel is not a god. They are merely, as some suppose, rightly or wrongly, extremely powerful creatures" You guys are playing rhetorical games.

"Angels are not Gods. They are not omnipotent, omnipresent, or omniscient, though they do exist on a higher plane than we.' They're still gods. If you want to be consistent, you'll have to admit Athena was not a god. Your angels are on the level of Hercules.
