So wait: by this logic, if Obama wins the election, it will have been by God's will, right?
EVERYTHING is the result of God's will (according to the religious) because he is the imaginary THREE "Os" (OMNISCIENT, OMNIPRESENT, OMNIPOTENT).And, I want to make it perfectly clear, they are entitled to believe whatever they want. WHY ?Because we are dealing with FAITH, not KNOWLEDGE.Eventually, in this discussion the religious will attempt to obfuscate their imaginary BS with the concept of FREE WILL.But, the bottom line that checkmates that religious BS is that if one plays the game according to their rules then if God is OMNISCIENT then when he created everything he already KNEW the outcome......YET, being OMNIPOTENT he STILL allowed the undesirable EVIL to exist. CONCLUSION: God KNOWING the results of what he created BEFOREHAND, i.e. the EVIL of agony, the diseases, the horrid torture, the HORRENDOUS EXISTENCE and DEATH of some .....he still, being OMNIPOTENT, did didley squat from creating a World where people would be happy ......and if they would be bored....then with God's OMNIPOTENCE he'd create them bored-proof.
You presume that "lack of evil" or "lack of suffering" is the highest good. If this is true, then non-existence guarantees a lack of both evil and suffering. Is that desirable?
There isn't any Good or Evil in non-existence.
