2.God is omnipotent, omniscient, and perfectly good
3.A perfectly good being would want to prevent all evils.
4.An omniscient being knows every way in which evils can come into existence.
5.An omnipotent being who knows every way in which an evil can come into existence has the power to prevent that evil from coming into existence.
6.A being who knows every way in which an evil can come into existence, who is able to prevent that evil from coming into existence, and who wants to do so, would prevent the existence of that evil.
7.If there exists an omnipotent, omniscient, and perfectly good being, then no evil exists.
So lets discuss this age old argument against religion.
(The only thing I could come up with.)
Evil is ignorance of the way, straying from the path as it were. We are in God's fold and the only Shepard is our given conscience.
2. Lifts it anyway
3. Shatters your logic
4. You die from witnessing such an event
Thats always what I though on the whole rock paradox. Our logic cant be shit compared to some all knowing all powerful being.
For one thing, at the Highest level, there is no such thing as good or evil. At our level, what we call evil is necessary--without it, the concept of good would be meaningless.
For another, the list leaves out one key concept--free will.
But then again, free will with a missing aspect of control is not really free will.
BUT if God DID give us free will without the evil, then evil would never occur, so we would never think of evil. So HE defines free will, not us.
Who knows, there could be some kind of missing aspect of our free will, but we just don't know it since it has never existed and thus cannot be created in our minds since inspiration is what causes imagination and creativity.
