Once I and my friends shared a light moment by saying - "Creating mankind is the only sin god has committed!".

And many times I get convinced over that statement. Humanity is no-where to be found, and when I see a few good people, I am against the statement.

i do believe in god. and he couldn't possibly sin. but yet..the only sin god could've committed was creating human kind.

I keep on reading posts made by religious people who simply say no without really giving much reason, can anyone elaborate on this apparent certainty for me?

I would seriously suggest this thread to anyone who says people who rely heavily on religion aren't brainwashed.

All I see is one vague cryptic statement after another and you all seem to be to so wrapped up in your own strange circular reasoning to step back and see the ridiculousness of what you're saying.

God is the Administrator
Administrators have no rules.
Therefore God cannot sin.

Exactly, there are rules which differentiate the line between sins and other.
When i own the rules then sins are none!

I agree, it worries me.

I think God works on the same concept as this:

Or rather if you heard the satire sport of Calvinball, you know it's the only game where you cannot break any rules (since you simply add more or alter them to your will so that you win the game). God simply does the same thing with normal rules which is completely unfair.

Perhaps by creating the concept of sin in humanity , God has sinned an in an indirect way .Perhaps by allowing the misery in this world to continue , God has sinned?

I live in misery everyday (not the whole 24 hours but it still manages to root itself into a complex integration with my time schedule). I can see reasons why I should not be miserable and at times know I'm just being stupid with misery. I do my best to keep my emotions hidden from everyone though eventually they explode and I have to deal with it while mopping up the mess (I tend to do this away from people as much as possible now).

If God intended to give everyone happiness then that would make things way too easy since there is no incentive to sin (and in most monotheistic religions, no incentive to sin essentially makes this life pretty much a useless waiting time). Misery is simply the other edge of the double-edged sword that we know as emotional health.
