    Really. I find the opposite to be true; I see a yin/yang quality, a balance, to almost everything that exists in our world, be it physical or meta-physical, which becomes more apparent to me as I go through life.

    I've actually noticed the same myself. I don't know what to make of it, but it's very fascinating for me to witness.

    What's the point of a God who wants this? Taking some people's ideas to their conclusion, it would mean that God indulges in getting his jollies off by burning them for the very things he made them for. Like I said, that God is worse than a toddler. It's on a Cosmic Jeffrey Dahmer level of behavior.. like some kid mad at his dog for something a dog simply does, and cutting his heart out, and burning his entrails for it. All for being a dog and nothing else. Real cool god you got there.

    Anyways, I'm done.

    The Bible is full of answers to your questions.

    Here is just a small sample:

    Romans 1:18-25
    "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
    Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen."

    My reason for believing this to be the case can be traced back to an individualism vs. socialism dichotomy which some lecturers at university clung to with tenacity, one a cold war marxist, the other a fanatic for herbert spencers politics and social policy, I didnt think their particular "game of tennis" made much sense to me, I dont think there is a dichotomy between those things. There are many other examples of false dichotomies too. Are yin and yang dichotomous? In the traditional two halves to a whole circle symbol they each contain one another in the form of a spot within the "tear".

    I'm glad you asked. This is my model for free will versus determinism. God gives us free will, yet there is an underlying determinism to everything. And sometimes there is a bit of each completely encompassed within the other...represented by the "spot."
