Conclusion

My primary position is that if a God exists, he is probably not the God of the Bible. In my opinion, it is very improbable that a loving, moral God exists who wants people to believe that he exists, and wants people to believe that they know what he wants them to do with their lives, but frequently mimics a naturalistic universe in predictable ways, or mimics some other God who chose to mimic a naturalistic universe, and always makes disputable prophecies, thereby needlessly undermining his attempts to try to convince people to believe that he exists.

 

My secondary position is that if a God inspired the Bible, 1) the Bible writers misrepresented what he is like, partly because a) the Bible says that God is not the author of confusion, and the Bible contains many needlessly confusing claims, including needlessly confusing prophecies, and b) because the Bible says that God is merciful, but God plans to send skeptics to hell for eternity without parole, because 2) it is probable that God is able to provide additional evidence that would convince more people to love him and to accept him without unfairly interfering with their free will, and 3) it is probable that God is able to achieve any fair, worthy, and just goal without killing people and animals, and without forcing animals to kill each other.
