A question for atheists who have read the Bible?

Christians have their beliefs about the whole "immaculate conception" thing. However, they look at it as a matter of faith. We on the other hand generally consider The Bible to be very bad literature at best... Jehovah is a pretty popular guy in the O.T. He gets out, talks to people, works the crowds... show more Christians have their beliefs about the whole "immaculate conception" thing. However, they look at it as a matter of faith.

Jehovah is a pretty popular guy in the O.T. He gets out, talks to people, works the crowds and basically is an active kinds "god". HOWEVER, after Christ is born, no one hears from him ever again directly. They can only talk to him by proxy through Jesus.

Now... all of the "gods" around the time Jesus was born were pretty proud of their sexual relations with humans. The Greek, Roman, Babylonian, and Persian "gods" all conceived children with humans, and their sexual prowess was well known among their followers.

Jehovah on the other hand, knocks up some Jewish chick, then goes into early retirement letting his son take control of the family business. Jehovah is basically written out of the story.

Do you think that after failing to even put a dent in Mary's maidenhead, Jesus inherits the family business because Jehovah was too embarrassed about having under-developed boy parts to directly continue his involvement in human affairs? Is it possible that after all of Jehovah's bullying the other "gods", the other "gods" made fun of him about his microscopic winky until he just decided to stay home, wait for the end of time, and not play with them anymore?

What are your thoughts or theories on why Jehovah is written out of the story at the end of the O.T?
