Re: God and Evil

The question has been answered, nicely, without any self-contradiction, by your god himself: "I create evil, and I am mean and I am jealous." ("I.e. I am not such a nice guy as you make yourself believe, that is, I am not as nice as your misconceptions tell you I am.") He says this first person sing...

Re: God and Evil

I checked. This is the real question:

If God is such a nice guy, why is there so much misery and suffering in the world?

Re: God and Evil

jayjacobus: All the ideas on this thread are in the right direction, but the real practical question is "who will protect us from evil in real life". NOBODY is not a reasonable answer. Is this the real question? I shall have to visit the opening post to see if this is the question, or is it only som...

Re: God and Evil

Isaiah 45:7 " I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things." More usually 'calamity' or 'disaster' which makes more sense when contrasted with 'peace'. Yes, do what all Christians do best: twist and turn the words of their believed lord, until...

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

:lol: I knew it wouldn't take much to get you to show your true colours. Men who claim to 'love women' are invariably 'protesteth-too-loudlyers' wherein the opposite is really the case. You dwell in the reality you create, which 1. has nothing to do with what reality is, 2. comforts you in times of...

Re: Rights

So, if you, like ,me, don't trust the law, who do you trust? Trust your own authority but be fair. This is an interesting concept. "Trust your own authority". This means on one hand, that you have authority (which implies power over others), and if you only have authority over yourself, then you ha...

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

I'm so sorry for confusing you so. I'm only stating the obvious. You are a condescending sexist misogynist. That's obvious from your posts. You can't help that and I can't change it, but at least be honest about it. And you are an inconsequential stupid little get, probably as fat and ugly as you a...

If there is anything in the mag that you like and would like more of, or anything that you don't like and would prefer less of, then this is a good place to say so (though of course you could always email me in...

Re: God and Evil

It doesn't proceed from the Bible that evil doesn't come from the Devil who may be primordial as much as God. However, God has created all the physical, the Heavens and the Earth while the Hell of the Devil is home to all (non-ethical/moral-rational) idiots! :D You brilliantly stated what does not ...

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

It's a bit more complicated than that. I would never use a word like 'sexism' unless I really meant it. I'm disappointed that you are too stupid to get past the PC crap. Everything is more complicated than that. It's almost a truism. Unless you can name the different fine details, why say it? Using...

Re: Is Playboy pornography or is it...

art? Is there any art to pornography, e.g. nudes? PhilX 🇺🇸 I can only give operational definitions to demarcate these two endeavours: 1. If it gives you a stiff, it's pornography. 2. If you have a sudden wicked urge to pay a lot of money for a photo so you can hang it on your wall, for all your gue...

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

Load of sexist shit on here. Nick and 1 are the worst offenders (and have the nerve to post their crap on a philosophy site). Why the fuck would it be a 'rarity'? How are you defining intelligence anyway? Marilyn Monroe was very intelligent. Yes. Talking about women's looks is sexist. And talking a...

Leaving a bit of cleavage uncovered could distract many male opponents :lol: Some of the women look as though they are simply dressing for comfort, and at least one other appears to have been the a glamour studio for a makeover for the occasion, which suits the tone of the article. It's not as thou...
