I like new tech, and old scotch; good stories, and bad jokes; craft beer and cookie-cut cookies.

PB&J barrel aged framinghammer by Jack's Abbey

As a barrel aged beer, it's pretty good, but I gotta say: I barely taste any PB&J. The bourbon definitely overpowers it.

If the Christian god had the personality of Donald Trump, nothing would be different than it is now.

For this debate, assume:
• The Christian god is real - henceforth "god"
• The Christian bible is the word of that god - henceforth "the bible"
• The Christian god is omnipotent, and omniscient , but has the personality of Donald Trump
• Humans have free will

What this debate isn't:
• A debate on whether god exists
• A debate on politics

I posit that since the bible is the only source of earthly knowledge of god, it's essentially propaganda. If god were a petty, unpredictable, violent narcissist, it certainly wouldn't say that in the bible, would it? It would still claim that god is a great guy, who loves every single human at a personal level, and if any bad things happen to any given human, well, somehow it's not the fault of god-- it's the devil, or that own human's fault, or a "mysterious plan" that the human just can't understand.

Conclusion: even if the Christian god is real, one can't trust that the god they read about in the bible is an accurate description of that god because both a benevolent god and a malevolent god would claim to be benevolent.

To save you a click: The kid asked for his hat to be signed. Trump signed the kid's hat and then tossed it to the crowd.

Maybe now I'll stop getting fake news sites "suggested" to me in Google Now.

The tech section of its site, NRKBeta, is trying a simple experiment. You can't leave a comment unless you've read the story. How will they know? There's a test!

America needs this right now.
