Re: God and COVID-19

This is a philosophy forum. No shit. Tell you what: you philosophize as you like, and I'll philosophize as I like. I did not mean any thing about "philosophizing". I meant being in a philosophy forum, at least speak only the actual truth of things, and also be at least able to back up and support a...

Re: God and COVID-19

Saying, " several "eggheads" "surmizing" "something" and "others" reporting that", does NOT answer my actual question asked. Yeah, I don't care. This is a philosophy forum. And as I continually say, If one wants to claim some thing, then I suggest that they have at least some thing to back up and s...

Re: God and COVID-19

What "assembly line"? It's a metaphor (or analogy, or simile, or somesuch [never could get those straight]. If man is not a free will then man is a robot, a machine and life just an assembly line. Not necessarily so at all in relation to what I was talking about. Adult human beings only have for ex...

Re: God and COVID-19

So, when you are the "bad and mad dog", which is far more often than you believe, is it then okay to just kill you as well? After all, it is actually kinder to end you than fix you. Or, does it not work the other way around? Quite apart from whether it's okay or not, it's always a possibility that ...

Re: God and COVID-19

It was commies eatin' garbage animals: raw bat brain soup, raw snake intestine tar-tar, pangolin toenail sammiches. Is this an absolute and irrefutable fact, or just more like what you believe is true? Several eggheads, at the beginning of the coronapocalypse, surmised the virus jumped species by w...

Re: God and COVID-19

Who was the human/s that created this virus, where was it created exactly, and what for? Also, how do you know that this virus was created by humans? Already answered upstream. Where? Were the answers to all four questions provided. I have looked and I could not see any answers to these actual ques...

Re: God and COVID-19

How exactly does one 'embrace' islam? What do i have to do exactly to 'embrace'? If you have a wish to embrace Islam, then this is really a great blessing that God, the Almighty is giving you. You should be made aware that no one guides to Islam except Allah, the Almighty. Allah, the Almighty says ...

Re: God and COVID-19

When human beings, themselves, kill millions upon millions of other human beings do people also wonder whether there is a God of evil or not or whether people are evil? God can't stop them? God can not stop who? And, I did ask a very specific question, for clarification, which you did not clarify.

Re: God and COVID-19

I am more than simply my choices. Presumably I could have chosen something different and would still be "me". So you don't think a universe in which you had free will would be better than one where you didn't? Is it related to human dignity ? Slaves sure think it is. Slavery is evil. You're the one...

Re: God and COVID-19

Free will is meaningless when there is no evil. Without the possibility of evil, good has no meaning; without choice, there's only the peace of the assembly line, or the grave. What "assembly line"? If there was no possibility of evil, then there would only be the possibility of good, and with this...

Re: God and COVID-19

So are you saying that it isn't a tragedy that the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are suffering right now? It's a tragedy for them. Do you grieve every time an elderly person you don't know dies of flu? Because there are thousands who do, every year. Do you grieve for every pers...

Re: God and COVID-19

It's not just old people. Doctors in some of the more inundated areas are now talking about who they should try to save and who they should let die because they don't have the beds or ventilators for them. It's overwhelmingly the elderly, and after that people with compromised immune systems. So ar...

Re: God and COVID-19

OK. If you want bad choices among the things available to choose from I guess that's your business. I'd rather not have evil things to choose from. I can still have a "free will" even when there are only good choices. I can choose from the good choices. Henry's actually caught the problem, Gary. If...

Re: God and COVID-19

Something that kills old people? Wow. Must be an evil god who would allow such a thing :shock: It's not just old people. Doctors in some of the more inundated areas are now talking about who they should try to save and who they should let die because they don't have the beds or ventilators for them...

Re: God and COVID-19

I can't believe in a God who allows so much suffering. Most of the suffering caused in the world we bring upon ourselves. There are exceedingly few episodes in history of what we call evil that we are not responsible for. Why always bring god into the picture when catastrophes happen? We're the fuc...
