In a world that is full of misinformation and outright lies, I have tried to create a site that can provide accurate and rational responses to questions about life. We can explore the pressing questions about science, religion, government and society together. Of course, we can have some fun doing this as well.

A few questions for Christians
I assume you think the 10 Commandments were a good thing for humanity. Why wouldn't god have provided them to Adam and Eve so that their kids would know the laws of god from the start? Since mankind became so evil that god had to wipe them all out except for the 8 people he allowed to escape on the ark, isn't it possible that if mankind had had the 10 Commandments from the beginning that man would not have been so evil? If it would not have made any difference, perhaps the 10 Commandments are not as special as Christians try to claim.
Why do the other seven people get a pass from god on being killed by the flood? Noah was supposedly blameless and god was pleased with him.Which is odd for all people were supposed born with original sin and have been sinning since they were born. However, the other seven would have been as evil as everyone else that god decided had to be killed. Seems rather arbitrary on the part of god.
Why the flood? He can turn people into salt. Isn't that a faster and easier way to deal with the problem of humanity? Why make all the blameless animals pay a price for the sins of humanity?
Why would god put the tree of good and evil in the garden since he did not want Adam or Eve to eat from it? Especially since he is all knowing and knows they will eat from it? If his plan is that they do eat it, why is he mad?
If Jesus is the solution to the problem that Adam and Eve created, why not have the first child of Adam and Eve be Jesus? He can die immediately and help billions avoid hell. Isn't that his goal?
