When scripture says God "hates" x, y, and z what does that mean?

It seems very strange that an infinitely wise being would let things he hates exist.
Is he simply so bored he creates things just to work him into a rage?
Did he give humanity Free Will just so we can find novel ways to piss him off?

    The creation myth and the omnipotence and omniscience of YHWH are later concepts in the Old Testament writing and interpretation.

    YHWH started out as a war God imported from neighboring civilizations and was in no way considered the creator of the universe or capable of doing literally everything. This is why he leads Israel into battle but cannot ensure their victory every time. This is why he has to send some angels to survey Sodom before deciding to obliterate it, since he didn't actually know everything about everyone down there.

      Yahweh was not imported, he was a native deity of the Israelites

    Why is meat boiled in milk so tasty?

      Satan interfered with our taste buds early in our evolution

      Protein can get quite dry, but it absorbs the milk fat. Same reason you baste.

      Is it a sin to boil meat in milk or is it only a sin when the milk is from the mother of the animal the meat comes from?

        Both, since eating meat with cheese isn't kosher and I don't think it matters whether the meat is beef or chicken

          Maybe kosher is not accurate.

            God was thought of as a magical old man in the sky with plenty of human emotions, like anger, jealousy, even fear. Way more like the Greek gods and other animist spirits than any kind of modern "cosmic" interpretation

            Yeah I guess the whole point of the new testament is that you can pick and choose which of the old testament commandments should be followed and which ones not.

            The law of God simply says not to boil a kid in his mothers milk.

    The only thing God "hates" is evil, because evil implies the absence of the good which God loves.

      And since the "good" which God loves involves killing people for picking up sticks on the wrong day of the week or forcing rape victims to marry their rapist, we conclude that evil is good.

        You kill a cow just because you're hungry, you kill a mouse just because he entered your house, and you think it is OK because they are inferior to you and you are more important than them.

        But aren't you more inferior to God who created the world than a mouse is to you, who were simply lucky enough to be born a human and not a frog? Isn't the Almighty God more important than you? So by your own moral standards its OK
        for God to kill you for whichever reason he thinks is justified just like you do to those species below you.

        Wouldn't God be more justified to kill you than you are to kill a cow? His wisdom created the universe and his knowledge built the heart that pumps your blood. What has your wisdom created? Who lives thanks to your knowledge?

        You disagree with the one, who out all the powerful, wise and amazing beings that must exist in all the universe, is the Most High, the Greatest One and the Ruler above all rulers, and you're arrogant enough to think that he is the one who must be wrong and not you, who don't even rule over your own household?

            A thug is not a superior species to you. Why wouldnt a being who's intelligence and superiority is lightyears above yours be justified in deciding whether or not you get to live yet you feel justified doing the same to animals who are really not that dumber than you?

            You expect a mouse in your house to be humble before your power to decide its fate, but you cannon believe there is a being so superior to you that he can humble you the same way?

            So it is morally wrong for members of the same species to kill each other, but it is morally right for members of a different species to kill each other? I'd like to see a Bible passage that addresses this, now I'm curious.

    Back in the old days most people didn't have a complex mind like nowadays so no regular peasant would consider concepts like this, that would dismantle the religion if you think about them a little bit. Many simple people are still like that nowadays, such as poors, non whites and women.

      This. The Bible is a book written by priests and for priests.
