    Why should God tolerate evil?

    Are you Jo Polanco?
    Because Jo Polanco wrote those exact words here.

    Plagiarism tells me that you have no answer of your own.

    Plagiarism is dishonest.

    I have caught 5 or 6 Christian creationists plagiarizing on this forum alone.

    What is it about the conservative Christian belief system that drives them to such transparent dishonesty?

    Which is meaningful because, as is well documented, Science is not only omniscient but infallible too . . .

    Right - fetuses are evil. So you should support abortion or be against Jehovah. Why do you hate Jehovah?

    And why are you a plagiarist?

    So it is possible God created some other universe?

    King Sargon settled Arabs of defeated desert tribes in the province of Samaria, the former kingdom of Israel, in 716 BCE.

    2 Kings

    King James Bible 17:24

    And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

    In the next verse ….

    2 Kings 17:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
    25 And it was so, at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they did not fear the Lord; therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which killed some of them.

    I don't know. Why does he?

    Seems like good evidence for the non-existence of a deity that cares about eliminating evil.

    It needs to be neither to know enough to eliminate falsehoods. That is the point. It is possible to *test* ideas and, at least, eliminate those that fail to agree with observations.

    I'm not even sure what that means. Is it possible to create universes? I don't know. Is anyone who creates universes appropriately described as a God? I don't know. What are the physical laws of other universes? I don't know.

    Is there even any way to make observational sense of this question? Not that I can see.

    You want proof that children are innocent? For real?

    What? My post says exactly the opposite. Do you need me to explain it to you? Or do you have a need to erect an absurd strawman version of science, so you can ridicule it?

    Based on the same evidence about fairies. You keep misstating peoples beliefs in an attempt to avoid the obvious. The burden of proof is upon you to prove that your god exists. It is not the duty of others to prove that he did not.

    Though if you gave enough details about your version of god it could be possible to "prove" that he does not exist.

    What kind of details do you require about my version of God that would prove His existence, and would that have to be beyond reasonable doubt or more concrete than that?

    If you can't prove it why should I believe you?

    I don't know enough about your version of god to even begin. @Maximilian has already made his version quite clear and if he made some points clear I could then do so. A major one is whether or not his god can lie. If his god can lie then all bets are off. I could not refute it, but then if one's god can lie why would anyone believe any of his claims to start with?

    There are versions of god that cannot be refuted. Yours may be one of them. Though the lack of my new car does not bode well for him.

    Says the person who advocates the existence of an unprovable deity and then asks everyone else to prove him wrong.

    Do you want to reason rationally or irrationally?
