Ah, care and compassion are not HUMAN traits? You told me Allah does not have human "emotions" because he is just too incomprehensible to have them. Let's make the COMPARISON of human to Allah, your self-proclaimed god who says he cannot be compared to anything. I will set aside the preaching aspect of your post as the drivel that it is.
You tell me Allah does not have human "emotions" but then you credit him immediately with TWO: care and compassion. Wait, you said he did not have them. Wait, you say he does have them. LOL! Sorry either he DOES or he DOES NOT. Which is it?
If he has human traits, we can compare him to a human. And this makes it false for Allah to claim that he cannot be compared to anything. If he does NOT have human traits, then we cannot compare him to a human. But HE makes claims of human traits throughout the entire Quran.
Well care and compassion are not confined to humans. Gorillas etc. care too but in different ways. Your entire post is now redundant.
How is my post "redundant"? Your above point relies on me having claimed that care and compassion are CONFINED to humans. Kindly cite where I said this. I did not say this. You have invented a red herring.
I merely claim them as human traits; According to the Quran Allah SHARES this trait with humans (and, apparently with Gorillas, etc according to your post. I did not expand to other creatures, so if you like to compare Allah to sharing the same trait with a Gorilla (etc.) be my guest.)
Allah names HIMSELF as "compassionate" and he therefore compares HIMSELF to humans who are also capable of this trait. He constantly assigns himself with human traits.
I simply mean that there is no better way to express what you call the "emotions" of God than through words like "care" etc. You tried to make a point by saying that Allah (SWT) is like a human, but the evidences you use are simply the best words to express the attributes of what we cannot define. Since we cannot define Him, we only express the attributes of Allah (SWT) according to the words describing how we can best "imagine" the Divine (i.e. He is merciful to a true believer etc.) The Qur'an uses those words because if He used concepts we were unfamiliar with we could not be guided. The point here is not the process, but the outcome.
The "best words to express", you say. Are they then just a lie? They are not what Allah claims them to be HIMSELF, but just a lie?
Allah is not REALLY compassionate (etc) even though he CLAIMS to be? We are not talking about LEVELS of compassion, here. LEVELS of a trait are greatly varied even between one human and the next. So is ALLAH "compassionate" as HE HIMSELF CLAIMS, or does he LIE about being compassionate just because he is incomprehensible? If he is NOT compassionate (though HE claims he is), then neither is he an all-knowing, all encompassing deity. If he cannot be compared to anything, then he is simply too alien for us to relate to on any level whatsoever. We cannot rely on his compassion, because he is not capable of compassion. We cannot rely on his mercy because he is not capable of feeling mercy, a human emotion, and is incomprehensible. We cannot believe in anything he says in the Quran because he is too alien for comprehension and is UNABLE to communicate with us because he LIES in the Quran and we actually have NO WAY to relate to him because we share NOTHING with him. We are supposed to trust and believe in him, but his entire Quran tells us NOTHING about him because he LIES about his own traits. Is this your answer? !
LOL! Stop flip-flopping. Either he IS compassionate AS HE CLAIMS, or he is NOT. If Allah is so incomprehensible that he has NO ability for compassion, then he clearly LIES when HE SAYS he is compassionate. Listen, I may not be able to tell a foreign language speaker that I care about the plight he is in. I do not speak his language so I can only SHOW my compassion by trying to help. If I did not HAVE compassion, I could not SHOW compassion.
Now you tell us that Allah HAS no compassion but is LYING when HE SAYS he is compassionate because we do not speak his higher god-language?
You falsely declare that Allah (SWT) lied but your point implodes. What is your point? Allah (SWT) prevented Muhammad (SAW) from being afraid. Too much hot air from you.
What? My point implodes? How, exactly? You now AGREE that Allah lied. You merely attempt now to JUSTIFY his lying by saying that this LIE "prevented Mohammad from being afraid". I am glad you finally concede the obvious fact
that Allah lied to his own prophet, though the REASON that he lied is not, and never was, the topic. (Incidentally, would it have been just too hard for Allah to simply say, "BE not afraid" ? So hard for Allah that all he can do is rely on a lowly HUMAN tactic and LIE? What does logic tell you about this weak EXCUSE for Allah's LIE
that you now invent?)

No sorry, as it relates to what I was asking, you did NOT. I pointed out that meddling in other people's sex life and marriages was a very human trait.
