Re: Can good God do evil?

Good one. The good/safety of the many, outweighs the good/safety of the few. This might be the only moral tenet to be objective in an otherwise subjective list. Governments and industry control robotic programming and experts are saying that the first law for robots is to not do anything to harm hu...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Pick any moral issue and I will walk you through it if you cannot land on it being good or evil. But since you are offering - I'll take you up on the challenge. We live in the world of autonomous/self-driving vehicles. We are already in a place where these vehicles can predict impact/accident as ha...

Re: Can good God do evil?

How can you say you have no way of knowing good from evil? In general terms, do you not know what you like? Do you not know what you dislike? I edited my comment to make that exact point. Without innate morality it's impossible to tell good from evil. That is WHY innate MORAL KNOWING is ALREADY wit...

Re: Can good God do evil?

If the Devil does not exist, we would not know God. If Evil did not exist, we would not know good, just neutrality. From utilitarian ethical theory, absolute good is evil because it prevents good. If I assume God is real, he is evil because he is good because you cannot be good without being evil. ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

God which I am aiming is the Catholic God who is the creator and goodness, buy goodness I mean that God always does good. I was wondering about a tension between goodness and freedom, by freedom I mean He has the ability to freely decide and do anything. Look, God is NOT a "he". I am referring to t...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Indeed. Yin without Yang is a foolish notion. Regards DL There can be yin with yang and still NO need to do some thing. You do NOT have to do evil but you choose to, and 'you' can still exist. We do have to do what some will see as evil to survive. If you want to make a statement, claim it to be tr...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Scriptures are NOT clear, Why do people who BELIEVE or DISBELIEVE God use the bible as though EVERY word in it is written directly from God, Itself, and then EVERY word means exactly whatever the person reading thinks or believes it means? The scriptures I spoke of are quite clear. If you say so. B...

By the way 'God' is not a "he".
What an incredible statement.

You know this as a fact, how?

Regards
DL
Because I KNOW what 'God' IS.

Re: Unproven assumptions

I think not. " It seems to me " is almost directly identical in meaning to an assumption. An assumption is a state where what "seems to be the case" is applied unchallenged. I can express what some thing seems to me without assuming that it is the case. No you cannot. So if you think or believe tha...

Re: Quadrant Model

Good job you're on a philosophy forum then...being a nutjob and all. Why? Do ONLY the ones who are worried about what they write and who care about what "others" think of them belong on a 'philosophy forum'? I doubt it but it happens to be an important part of critical thinking, listening to others...

Re: Quadrant Model

By the way, how do you know that that 'nutter' is younger and madder than me, I could be much more younger and much more 'madder'? No, you are stale and boring, your routine has played out. All you are good for is another round of RANDOMLY CAPITALISED outrage and a repetitive dose of "clarifying qu...

Re: Quadrant Model

I think the point you are missing is that you are madder than a nutjob (and one that's younger than you.) Nobody gives a flying poo about the diarrhea that your keyboard ejects. And I do NOT care one iota about what people here think about what I write. Good job you're on a philosophy forum then......

Re: Quadrant Model

Wait your turn Age, this thread has been taken by a nutter that is younger and madder than you. You asked a question. All I did was just inform you of what the answer is. If you REALLY want to discover what I have, then NOW you KNOW HOW. Also, if you wonder about that if you keep letting "others" i...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Erm... if god is good, he won't do evil...in this case he is not omnipotent. His actions are curtailed by a whole set of activities. If god is omnipotent, he will do both good and evil. Indeed.
