Re: Past, PRESENT--future?

There is a crucial division between the past and present vs. future.Reality only happens or has happened- it does not exist in the future. If it has not yet happened, it is not real, other than as a mental concept. This is also true of time. TIME ALWAYS STARTS NOW. Future time does not exist other ...

How time does change?

Time is subjected to change. We need time for any change. Therefore we need time to have change in time which is a regress.

How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

I think we can agree on the arrow of time which tells us that there is a direction in time. Time, however, exists at one point so-called now, the past is collective memory and the future does not exist objectively. My question is how time can have a direction if it only exists at one point? That is ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Look, God is NOT a "he". I am referring to the Catholic God. They call God Him. I do NOT care what any one calls any thing. God IS what It IS. If you want to LOOK AT and SEE the Truth of things, then it helps if you speak thee Truth first. Do some people call God a 'he'? If yes, then so be it. If n...

Re: Can good God do evil?

I agree with all you stated. If you agree with all that I stated about the Catholic depiction of God, then can you not understand the problem with your thread title? The title of this thread is about good God which includes the Catholic God too. I agree with what you stated that torturing people is...

Re: Can good God do evil?

God which I am aiming is the Catholic God... If such is the case, then shouldn’t the title of your thread be: Can the Catholic God do evil? God which I am aiming is the Catholic God who is the creator and goodness, buy [sic] goodness I mean that God always does good. Do you mean to frame it as a Go...

Re: Can good God do evil?

The only definition of 'God' that you are providing is that 'God is good', and you say that a good person can do evil, so then I would say Yes a 'good God' has the ability to do evil. Are you satisfied now? I am, however, still unsure what argument you are actually seeking. I do not even know how y...

Re: OUGHT from IS is Possible

There are people who want to be killed, individuals in locked-in syndrome. There are individuals who like to kill. Why not make the code of laws in terms of what these people want? Note I mentioned in the above, the following exceptions; If any of the above answer yes, I am sure they [from 0.0001% ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

I am late but--- God is said to be able to do anything and that would include doing evil. To say no would be to restrict what an Omni-everything god can do. That is not really allowed. History, if you believe the myth to be historical, which I do not, shows god as doing evil quite often. This link ...

Re: OUGHT from IS is Possible

Hume argued it is not possible for an 'Ought' to be derived from "Is". As such, humanity cannot establish absolute moral rules, laws or principles. On the contrary, I believe it is logical and possible to establish absolute moral rules. Note absolute in this case is not absolutely-absolute from a G...

Re: Can good God do evil?

So, are you saying you know a good God has the ability to do evil things or not? No, I don't know. I am asking whether good God has the ability to do evil. I know that a good person can do evil because s/he is free. I am wondering if there is an argument about God. The only definition of 'God' that...
