Nevertheless, ever notice how happy theists are to submit others to horrible torture in order to maintain the delusion that they are "special" and the universe cares for them?

Pathetic.

Perhaps you could use normal size fonts so some of us with aging eyes don't have to squint to read your comments, or alternately, skip reading your comments?

No, no. Maybe Doc doesn't want us to read his comments.
Doc, please make your letter smaller because I still can read what you write. Oh, and please, continue using that ugly Times New Roman font.

If you don't know how to ignore a message, complain to me and I will be happy to demonstrate.

Spoiled children have no fear of punishment(like going to hell) so your analogy fails.

The chimerical or supernatural notions of theology have so succeeded in destroying, in the minds of men, the most simple, dear, and natural ideas, that the devout, unable to accuse God of malice, accustom themselves to regard the several strokes of fate as indubitable proofs of celestial goodness. When in affliction, they are ordered to believe that God loves them, that God visits them, that God wishes to try them. Thus religion has attained the art of converting evil into good! A profane person said with reason—If God Almighty thus treats those whom he loves, I earnestly beseech him never to think of me.

Men must have received very gloomy and cruel ideas of their God, who is called so good, to believe that the most dreadful calamities and piercing afflictions are marks of his favour! Would an evil genius, a demon, be more ingenious in tormenting his enemies, than the God of goodness sometimes is, who so often exercises his severity upon his dearest friends?

No, son. Try not to make exposure of your desperate ignorance so manifest. But fast! Do you know of a vaccine for . . . pontine astrocytoma? Do share it with us!

Oh wait . . . you do not. It is not caused by a virus. Yes, see how much easier this is if you actually know what you are blathering about? You should try it! Perhaps you will cease belittling the suffering of children for which your Evil fairy tale does . . . nothing.

Quote:Humanity could have a cure for that tumor by now. . . .

And we could all have PONIES!!!

Maybe your Evil Fairy tale is preventing the research?

Does that make you feel better.

The claim by the original poster is God is evil because He allows bad things to happen in the world.
I make a counter argument that perhaps God allows bad things to happen so that humanity has the incentive to engage in things like science and such in order to come up with solutions. Tragedy brings us together and provides us an incentive to learn.

Instead of countering my counter argument, you engage in obsfuscation with your incessant referral to people lying in their own poop and enage in ad hominem attacks like calling me a sad person. You realy haven't said anything of substance in this thread.

If you saw a child rapist about to enter a room to rape a child, would you stop them? Would it be evil for someone that has the ability to stop them, to let them rape the child?

I'll bet we would both agree that stopping the child rapist is the moral thing to do.
