why did god create man

For the godly in the crowd, why did god create man?

By whatever definition or parameter accorded to god, why create man?

Was it boredom? Was it the fact that no one had invented video games?

And to those who would stroke their luxuriant beards and say that the question is "imponderable -- don't waste your time," the obvious follow-on is that if you can't/won't answer that one, how could anyone prattle on and on about the other prattling stuff that follows in the wake of man's creation?

Somewhere, there must be a tale of sorts to respond to this question, but I can't remember it.

And if there's a tale to tell, did god make it up or did man?

I'm only half-kidding about any of this. It's kind of weird in my head at the moment.

  1. Can't read anything that you'd typed, but amusingly this verse comes across as perfectly sensible abet fascist: "Wicked men are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm." Proverbs 12:7

    1. Sure seems like the wicked thrive and the righteous struggle.
