God came from fear is to denigrate believers. It is as likely, more likely, that he was created out of an appreciation of beauty than an appreciation of fear. And maybe not created... I believe, and am probably too fearless for my own good. But he was no doubt soon used to turn a prophet. I meant profit.
Be careful here. This is an old topic from 2003. And the ranch now has a different forum for certain types of topics, such as religion. If this topic gets too meaningful, then it will be locked -- requiring the topic to be restarted in the Rattlesnake Pit forum instead.
