Insofar as "it" is even coherently defined in the first place, which, when it comes to most anything purported to be "supernatural", is vanishingly rare.

Especially when people still think logical positivism is tenable.

All right, champ.

Let us know where you're going with this.

Mostly you seem to take the express train to bumfuck, nowhere. Is there any reason to suppose this to be an exception?

YeeaaahNo. Drinking Beverage

A person very dear to me was badly hurt through a misunderstanding and miscommunication. For this, I am sorry, and he knows it. That said, any blaming me for malicious intent is for the birds. I will not wear some scarlet letter, I will not be anybody's whipping girl, and I will not lurk in silence.

To me, good and evil are nothing more than human concepts that we designed a long time ago. They do not actually exist.

A lot of the arguments I seen are that god cannot exist since the bible says he is all powerful and all good and "evil" still exists etc.

Can "God" be "coherently defined"? .....as you so eloquently put it?

Yes or no?

If no, why not? Drinking Beverage

And according to you, such arguments are moot because evil does not exist.

I really don't want to hear how rape is O.K. because the bible says so (since it does), so let's leave that question alone Confused
