Read Romans...see what the Scripture says about those that WORSHIP the creature and creation rather than the creator. YOU are throwing rocks at God, even though subconsciously, or do you think sin is all a conscious act?
My concept of God is based on Scripture, experiences, and observation of nature and life, and a knowledge of human history.
If we are created in the image of God, then our emotions, feelings, desires, are some reflection of His, even though debased at this point. God does get mad...just like us (but in righteousness).
And imagine this: You go to a lot of effort to build a beautiful house, invest a lot of time, money, resources, sweat and tears. You built this house specifically for somebody that you actually love...you did it as an act and showing of that love.
They move in and not only do they trash your house, but they pretend that either the house always existed, or somebody else built it. They look right at you and while you show them the deed of ownership, and you pretend to not see or hear them. Maybe you are a far more elevated being, but if somebody did that to me, I would kick their ass, and kick them out of my house.

"My concept of God is based on Scripture, experiences, and observation of nature and life, and a knowledge of human history."
My concept of God is based on a study of the Bible and fact.
I prefer my unknowable God to your canned one.
