I’ve actually given this a bit of thought. The way I grew up, I was told about God and everything. I liked to entertain the thought of God being Geppetto in Pinocchio…only mean. So God was mad with Lucifer and decided to make his own toys. He set up a workshop )How about you? Did you have a book that was hard to read, or one you read over-and-over again? I would love to hear what your book facts are. Let me know (the universe), then made a work bench/table (Earth) and his toys are all the living things made and stored on the work table. We are told we have free will, but God already knows everything we do before we do it because he made us. Effectively shooting down freewill, and treating us as windup toys that he guides and moves without empathy. It’s a bleak existence but that’s how I view the creation of the Universe.
