God would NOT have any sufficient reason to allow any evil at all.
I have given you the answers to the above question but somehow you are unable to grasp it due to confirmation bias.Immanuel Can wrote: ↑Sun Jan 10, 2021 3:30 pmBut you've got his nature wrong. You've listed only the features you, yourself choose to assign to Him, and none that don't serve your purposes. No Theist I know would agree with your list, beyond that God is "good." Those other terms, you just made up yourself.Veritas Aequitas wrote: ↑Sun Jan 10, 2021 8:38 amThat is my point, your supposed God will logically not act in contradiction of his own nature.But this is not because He lacks potency; it's rather because He never has to nor wants to act in contradiction of his own nature; and being all-powerful, He is never compelled to do so.
This is time #6, and the last time I'll bother to try to explain it to you: your key problem is as follows:Therefore when God began to create humans, logically and it follows that God would have imbued human nature with Good and no possibility of evil.
How do you know that God can have no sufficient reason for the allowing of some evil.
The point is, it is not logically and is contradictory for God as defined omni-GOOD intrinsically to have sufficient reason to allow for any evil at all.
I believe this is the critical point your overlooked:
It is not me who listed those omni-features for God but your highest regarded theologians [St. Anselm, Descartes and others] who assigned your supposed-God the maximally or whatever omni-Good qualities as an Ontological God.
It you don't backed your God as an ontological God [no greater can be conceived], then your God is an inferior God which leaves room for another superior God to kick your God's arse. No theist would want to do that, so they have to insist their God is an ontological God.
Here is my argument;
- 1. For all ideas of what is supposedly a God, they are all reducible to the Ontological God - St Anselm, Descartes.
2. The Ontological God is 'a Being than which no greater can be conceived'.
3. In this case, God has to be 'a Being than which no greater GOOD or Power can be conceived' - i.e. logically that means OMNI-GOOD and omni-potent respectively.
4. No greater Good or Omni-Good means no possibility of EVIL in whatever the circumstances.
5. Since God is omnipotent, God has the power to prevent Evil in any circumstances.
6. Therefore it follows logically that God would NOT have any sufficient reason to allow any evil at all.
