    Son, nobody's telling you to believe in God. What we are discussing is if God is evil. Nobody cares about your atheism. You just bring it in to every conversation you can because believers discomfort you. Shit or get off the pot.

    Actually, I was ignoring it. I'm just throwing some thoughts on some angles in the topic but when it comes down to argueing about wether God is real or not, I tend to stay clear. My apologies for choosing one of your posts to quote for my own pleasure, without seriously wanting to attend the discussion!

    Then what exactly is the point of your objection in Post 100?

    Oooh, I misread your post and thought you said It's arguable... but one would hardly interrupt such a debate by declaring that Nurse Ratched was an angel. I mean, it's not much of a debate wether or not she is evil. She is probably the most evil woman in movie history. >.>

    So I thought you made a joke, instead of going back on the original post of someone barging in a topic about wether god is evil or not by saying it's not an issue as god is fiction.

    While ironically, the debate of usefulness of fiction is worth an entire seperate discussion, as both fact and fiction are equally important in expansion of knowledge. You can not learn new aspects such as morals and ethics in the first place without delving into the imaginary.

    But I'm trailing again.

    I don't have to accept that the Christian God is real to be able to discuss whether or not our society would call that concept "evil".

    Precisely so. We are agreed on that point.

    Therefore, I ask again... what is the point of your objection in Post 100?

    The characterizations of "too rebellious" or "stubborn", as that I have the problem for not believing the same things they do, including unprovable assertions.

    As you do your religion? Pot, meet kettle.

    It's hard to discuss IF God is evil when your response will reflexively be "God can't be evil".

    Well, let's start over with a pretty simple approach to the question "Is God Evil?"

    Just define God, and define Evil, and see if the two coincide.

    Simple, right?
