RE: The Problem of Good
Let me just give some made up answers that I have no justification by means of evidence and say that it was revealed to me by an all powerful being and arrogantly state my unproven beliefs as unquestionably true.

By the power vested in me by a blade of grass, I pronounce you Pope Fodder. You are now completely infallible, every contradiction you make henceforth will ve non-contradictory just because it's you making it, and every bad thing that you do will magically turn into a good thing. Arise.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

RE: The Problem of Good
I read the title of this and thought it would be about the obvious. The obvious thing about the problem of good is that god is demonstrably not good. Punishing a group for the actions of an individual is not good, yet god supposedly did this. What else do you need to know?

There is no "sometimes". Big Grin

I'm running into this in the same thread I started at AF. Someone claimed that when we do bad, that's our choice, but when we do good, that's God acting. I have yet to get a compelling answer as to why this doesn't make God 100% responsible for every time we don't do good.

I will tell you why I may say that when I do good it is God acting.
When I do good I do God's will. His will for me to do good. I am doing His work. I am doing part of His plan.
When I do evil I am not doing what God wants me to do but I do what I want.

When I do good I do God's will. His will for me to do good. So, God and I are one in purpose.
When I do evil I am not doing God's wants me to do but I do what I want.

Are you now claiming to be god's equal??? Big Grin

No, "to be one with God" means "to be part of His team".

I think you do not know of that which you speak.

Off topic question. What direction does the water rotate when you flush a toilet in Australia?
