How are you able to make this shit up? Not enough fiber in your diet?

Spongebob Squarepants, no benevolent god can exist in a universe with that monstrosity.

I didn't realize what walk down memory lane this thread is.

Aw, I wonder how Arctic and Satan69 are doing this holiday. Consider

What a weird point of view!

So do you worship this partly evil god?

So in other words:
Existence is partly evil in my pantheistic viewpoint but strives to his basic good self.


How does that possibly make any sense? Consider

Why does it not make any sense?

Existence is not a conscious being, hence why it can't "strive" to be anything; neither good nor bad.

Existence simply is. Therefore, it is neither good or bad. It cannot be partly or wholly evil (or good). It cannot do anything and therefore cannot "strive". The pronoun "his" cannot be attributed to something that has no gender, cannot possess anything, and is not a being. The word "self" only makes sense as a separation from "non-self". Existence encompasses everything and is separate from nothing so the term "self" is meaningless when applied to existence.

So, as I asked before, how does your statement possibly make any sense?

There, I gave you a REAL reply. Your turn now to do the same...

Ouch! I wouldn't slam an outhouse door that hard. I like Spongebob. It's one of the only kids' shows I like watching with my daughter.

My list:
1. One's tendency to get cancer is unrelated to one's kind or unkind actions.
2. Charity is harder and less rewarding than selfishness.
3. Innocent children depend on the charity of their parents -- see point #2.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

RE: A list of things to disprove the existence of a benevolent god
Wow, Jesus isn't the only thing getting resurrected around here. Why did we breathe life into this thread, only to bring it back for such nonsense?

At least, if you're going to drop these one-sentence nuggets of crap, you should add another sentence or two explaining why your particular crap is not as clueless as it appears.

How can pantheism even remotely support the notion of an evil god, even a partly evil one? Pantheism by definition equates "god" as basically being "the universe" or "all of existence" or some such silliness. Which part of existence is evil?
