    Well you can train ("human") fleas to do an amazing variety of tricks.... e.g. making smoke rings with a cigarette.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=374&v=FA_DkeaCKL0
    Maybe God's boredom is the explanation for "cessationism"......
    Which may be amusing for a day or two....

    I like animals as well and would not punish them for being to dumb to do as I bid.

    Would you punish them for not doing as you would bid them do?

    Do you think it fair for a god to punish us?

    Of course not, what do you take me for?

    Your answer was to have me form that opinion. Now I have.

    One with better morals than Yahweh.

    YHWH is a person of many portrayals, some contradictory. What one finds in a collage may say something about the artist... or the commentator.

    God bored.
    God creates Earth.
    God toys with humans.

    Unlike some specious god put humans in heat 24/7, but giving in to our generic dictates is a no-no. It must be amusing from on high to watch humans torment themselves.

    Bored is putting it mildly. It took him 6 chapters to get sick of the human experiment and murder 99.999% of 'em.

    But, but, but...God gazed upon His Creation and declared it to be Good.

    "How can it not be right when it's done with love?" - Genesis 8:15.
    Wait, no, wrong citation. It's a quote from Susan Atkins.

    Usually in Genesis 1 God says things are "good" but verse 31a says "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good". YECs can say that implies there was no animal death before the fall.

    God likes being worshipped and animal/human sacrifices...


    Exodus 34:14
    Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

    Satan apparently was too proud to worship God so God is going to send him and most humans to hell....

    As far as intelligence goes, God prefers the faith of children to know-it-alls....
