Because that is the definition of the word "vain" in the English language.

vain

–adjective, -er, -est.

1. excessively proud of or concerned about one's own appearance, qualities, achievements, etc.;

If he was vain he would come down and reveal himself to you as you wish taking away your freewill by forcing you to believe in him! THEN he would be a vain dictator As you make him out to be! If he was vain he would have FORCED everyone to believe in him and glorify him! Instead he gives you the choice! If he was so concerned about his appearance he would have participated your silly studies and changed the horse races! He is not vain he is GOD ! And my belief in him was just confirmed as I took a stroll around the block right before this post and encountered a rastafarian man whom I asked if he knew where i could get some weed. He began preaching to me out of nowhere about how I have what I need in my heart and how the world is changing into a new era I should tell people about this and if they don't believe than they do not want to and that I should not try to prove it to them! So to me that was too much of a coincidence and it gave me the reassurance that he is there1 you can call me crazy but i've been arguiing with you all day over his existence and for that to happen to me just blew my mind buddy! So you can continue believing in the existence of nothing but pain and sorrow but I see through the hearts of men like that, god is all too real in this world and his present is felt by me and the other 80 percent of humans who CHOSE to believe in him! I am not lying this really happened I would not make this up because I KNOW IT MAKES ME LOOK CRAZY TO YOU. 1 LOVE I HAVE SAID ALL I NEED TO

I've been informed by my Christian friends that this is exactly what he has done. He has revealed Himself incontrovertibly, and uses threats of severe and everlasting torture to force my compliance.

He so amazingly vain, that if I, poor insignificant little me, in all the vast cosmos, refused to kiss his a$$, he will go to all the trouble to find me out, and torture me unimaginably for the rest of eternity and then some. He's all love and kindness and humility, that guy.

But, I'm glad that you go to sleep every night absolutely certain that you know exactly what makes the Creator tick, you know what He's thinking, you're always one step ahead of Him, anticipating his every move. You have Him perfectly psychoanalyzed.. Man, you're all over God.

You've been watching to many fire and brimstone preachers buddy! GOD is more forgiving the they'd like you to think! I didn't say christians were perfect!(assuming god exists) If you were the devil who would you try your hardest to infiltrate and confuse? Who would you try your hardest to disprove ? Who would you try your hardest to divide? Exactly! I dont believe hell is anything like what the brimstone preachers talk about unless you undeniably DESERVE that torture you most likely will just cease to exist when you die. Hey that's what you assume is gonna happen anyways! Hell is described in the bible as coldness,darkness and abscence of the presence of GOD! God is the presence of life,love and existence. It also says the only way to exist in a spiritual non-physical world is to accept that GOD is real. This would make sense because if he is the presnce of life, love and existence. Without believing in that you are nothing more than dust and you shall return to it as nothing more than dust! There have been countless studies showing that your belief can change the actual events of reality! Simple example : If you walk into a job believing your gonna get it you have a higher chance of getting it than if you doubted yourself! Doubt can actually cause real events to happen. It is a widely talked about belief(amongst not just religious people but humanists as well) that you are as you think are! And this is true!
People get this burning for all eternity idea from revelations where it describes being thrown into a lake of fire. This very easily could be describing the demise of our planet. If you fail to transform to the spiritual or paranormal dimension after death because you do not believe in this possibility at all it would make sense that you(or your remains) would parish with the demise of our planet instead of moving on into the spiritual world!
Because you have not replied to anything regarding overpopulation I assume you have come to terms with the FACT it is not a population problem but a resources problem.

And it all could be fixed without killing 90 percent of us but the corporate world would go back to the 1800's! So do you suggest we kill 90 percent of us or live as we were intended and stop letting our governments steer us down ***** creek without a paddle?
You need to read the book the world without us by alan weisman! This will answer your question from earlier. remember when you asked us to name a solid benefit of the human race surviving?
Well in that book is your answer! But I will tell you so you don't have to read the whole thing ! The damage we have done would cause the demise of our planet(as it already is) when we are gone if we do nothing to fix it now while we are here! Basically put, if we don't survive the Earth won't either so our extinction be not only pointless but counter productive!
P.S. I am a christian so this will give you the right to discredit me now right?
If you knew how to read a forum correctly you would have noticed the answer has been given at the bottom of this post! As far as you being more creative than me? Your hilarious man really if you only heard the music I produce! You would want to hurt yourself more than you already do! And it isn't gospel music buddy! On top of this I'm an excellent writer and debater and would kill you in all sports but baseball and golf because they are boring like you. You have ZERO creativity ,as evident by your inability to think for yourself and draw conclusions around obvious factual statements. Your denial of these facts not only demonstrates your lameness but it also shows you're an ignorant brainwashed fool who actually agrees with the mainstream media even though I'm sure you know they are liars! By agreeing with them you show the opposite of creativity and forfeit any uniqueness as a human being whatsoever! It would take you all night to write this and you would have 100 errors. In fact I bet you gave up reading at the thrid sentence as usual! If you had any creativity whatsoever you could construct a paragraph that was worth a damn. Your points (if you could call them that) are scattered in a ridiculous rambling order and you provide no rebuttals to anything I say! On top of this you lose track of what the debate is about and admit to being erroneous in ALL of your subject matter without even realizing your helping the opponents viewpoint. Anyone with a brain can see you have been forum murked buddy . Give up
