    Nietzsche was after all a pastor's son. Have you read him? Your "fools!" opening was just his thing.

    Then there is:

    Jesus did not come to bring peace, but the sword, eh? Make the Pleroma Great Again, is still what I hear.

    Because most religions claim divine perfection.

    No, well not unless you interpret the flood story as humans directly and intentionally causing the flood. God does things in the name of God, not in the name of religion as this would place the religion above God.

    Because that very same book makes it very clear that there is one God and they are not it.

    What do you mean by that? That religious people claim that their god(s) is/are perfect? Or that religious people claim that their religious teachings are perfect? Or that their religious practices are perfect? Or that they themselves are perfect by virtue of being followers of said religion?
