Re: Imperefct God

...what if the universe was created and "ruled" by a being, not God,. who is imperfect. I mean he doesn't have to be perfect; he just have to be capable enough to create and rule the universe.. Is that possible? The Gnostics thought that's how it worked. They thought the earth, and human bodies, fl...

Re: Imperefct God

Many philosophers offer solutions to the problem of evil while maintaining that God is perfect. They reconcile evil with an all-powerful and all-good God by such concepts as free will, uniformity of nature, and that this is the best possible evolutionary world. However we can also explain evil with...

Re: Imperefct God

But what if the universe was created and "ruled" by a being, not God,. who is imperfect. I mean he doesn't have to be perfect; he just have to be capable enough to create and rule the universe.. Is that possible? Of course that is possible. Furthermore, what is it about the universe that implies th...

Re: Being Anti-God

I get that. If there's a plan to all this, then there's hope. If there's not, then we're all just in a cosmic blender, becoming a giant milkshake. But if there's a plan to this, then there's God. Yeah. I guess that's pretty true. I'll see what the plan is eventually. Or otherwise not. Well you OBVI...

Re: Being Anti-God

It just hurts like hell to live in this world sometimes. And the worst of it is when it's difficult to have hope. It hurts like hell because it is hell. The religious nutters believe hell is a place you go to at judgement day. not quite right, Gospel of John is a proto-gnostic work and it claims "S...

Re: Being Anti-God

What have you been trying that didn't work? I think the "beast" really has no nature of its own - but it can reflect any "nature" that you project on it. I've been trying to win the heart of a woman I've fallen in love with for over 6 months now and it doesn't seem to be working. Apparently, nothin...

Re: Being Anti-God

I don't like this world a whole lot and if God created it, then I don't think I like God a whole lot either. He didn't make it like it is, Gary. We did that. And He's got plans to deal with that. 1 Cor. 4:5 -- "...do not go on passing judgment before the time..." Maybe don't make a judgment until a...

Re: Being Anti-God

No caps? It's a miracle... At what age do you stop feeling emotional pain? When the 'you' grows and matures enough to REALIZE, and thus KNOW, that 'emotions' are NOT actually 'painful' at all. It can be the worst pain of all. Far more people commit suicide because of emotional pain (or suffering if...
