Does God fear what he/she created?

Well according to that really fun book called the Bible humans spoke one language, and then came the tower of Babel where someone wanted to build a huge tower to the heavens.

God wasn't too thrilled at that, and yet he says how clever we humans are that we can work together, yet out of either fear or spite then scrambles our spoken language so that we all now speak different languages.......

Did he/she do this out of spite or fear that we would one day become as smart or like gods ourselves if we continued to work together?

I don't know about humanity, but he should definitely fear Batman.

It has never worked for me to judge my fellow man. Every time a judgmental thought comes into my head it isolates me from the rest of humanity. This problem occurs hundreds of times a day, and builds me up and up and up. Then the truth smashes my tower of self righteousness and knocks me on my ass. It is my fault that I experience the pain that comes with this fall, because I was the one putting myself on the pedestal. No one can understand what I'm saying because I'm babbling from the position that I am better than everyone else. No one can work together in a situation like this, this is why my relationships crumble. God help us all.

God is beyond petty fear and spite.

If he's capable of jealousy and rage why not fear?

These are all just words, they are applicable to God only as allegory, and then are often misinterpreted. God is beyond words, emotions and our own faulty minds.

I'd have to assume you are speaking of a nebulous force or universal consciousness rather than the biblical interpretation. Because the description of God in the bible IS that of a petty jealous, narcissit with a genocidal temper. Who is willing to torture people forever for so much as not believing in the bible or anyone pushing it.

If you look at the things God did in that book, you'll see that we are closing in on being able to match him, so I'd say yes. Things like turning water into wine and holding the sun still in the sky is beyond us, for now, but fire from the skies, destroying cities in seconds and make thundering voices come from the skies are rather easy for us.

To answer the question it was pure spite, me and the GOD dude were discussing it at poker last night.
