Why Call Him God?



Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

Plan is to have this section as a place that has one thread for each of Seth's videos.

Could take a while to get them all in though.

RE: Why Call Him God?
Technically, epicurus didn't use those exact words. David Hume utilized the original and added to it. I much prefer the original:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is impotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Whence then is evil?

The "Why call him god?" was added by Hume.
They're almost one and the same, but I have a thing where it drives me nuts when people quote the original person having changed the original structure a bit and attribute it to them when it was someone else. I find Hume's revision or addition to be provocative since I think the original can tackle it without the addition. But it may be useful to some.

Regardless, a great video.
