None of these factors speak against an Intelligent Creator. They simply speak against how YOU would create. A part of this is probably that you see God as performing magic, because you don't understand what God is doing, so you think if it's magic, it should be a certain way.
Perhaps because they're not engaging in literary criticism, and the most poetic passages aren't the outlandish ones.
That the supernatural does not exist, that God does not exist and so on.

As a society will judge them, "yes." Whether or not they have actual control over their actions (i.e., free will) is the philosophical question. A "good" person, like a "bad" person, may be inherently such, thus deserving (your word) of neither praise nor blame. The neurological jury is still out.
You take that back. This is not a forum for levelheadedness.

It's funny how you fail over and over to explain when you decided to be strait.

RR - Thanks for your reply. I am not sure where you are getting the "fallacy of the written word." The New Testament translations that I have are masked (a computer term) back to the 3rd Century, so I would be interested in what translations you have that date to the 4th century so that I would avoid them. The Catholic Church (as we know it), with corrupt practices was not formed until after Constantine legalized Christianity (which has been a real burden on the Church ever-since) and you couldn't say that they were intent on any deception, quite the opposite. The 1st Crusade was not until the year 1095, which was by then called by the corrupt Catholic Church. That is why the Reformation was so important in bringing the light back into the world by direct translations from the Greek and Hebrew... Now we have the ancient documents with recent discoveries of older documents verifying the new translations. Just a note, I do not care for the King James translation for a few reasons: 1) All of it was not translated from the original Greek 2) Most importantly - I am not so well versed in 16th century English 3) There are better translations with much more insight into the original texts and due to masking, a certainty of the exact Greek words from the original text.
