He saw that it was good

Check out this cool, 8-bit style animation about the biblical version of creation. The link will take you away from Le Café. If you want to follow along, you can read one of the two different biblical creation accounts here.

***SPOILER***

The ending flash-forward is a good one. It reminded me that I’ve always found it weird that the character of god — who is supposed to be all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving — would create something so beautiful and good only to let its fall from grace be silly (a talking snake, a naked couple and a fruit) and then thousands of years later destroy everything in a cataclysmic event only to have the minority of believers make it into a bizarre utopia called heaven.

Haven’t you ever heard that stupid argument for Christianity that says, “We have freewill. If God didn’t give us a choice, life would be soooooo boring. God knew what he was doing when he gave us choice.”

Yet all those people who say it think it’s going to be great to not have a choice once they reach heaven.

Make up your minds. Either love the choice or hate it. I thought everything was black and white with believers.
