This is not intended to be a bash against Christianity. Instead I'm using it solely as an example. Many Christians claim God doesn't stop evil because he gave Man free will. Now for some of my problems. 1) How is it possible to have free will with an omniscient being floating around? Don't our future choices have to conform with what the being already knows we will choose? Example: Say tommorrow night I have the option of ordering a pizza or ordering Chinese. God knows I will order pizza. When tommorrow night rolls around, can I do anything but order pizza. If I order Chinese, then God wasn't all-knowing. But God is all-knowing, therefore I cannot freely choose to order anything but pizza or that will contradict his omniscience. So I'm locked into ordering the pizza simply because God knows I will. 2) How can we have free will with the threat of Hell pointed at our heads? Doesn't a legitimate threat compromise free will? Example: A mad rapist holds a woman at gun point and tells her to either have sex with him or die. Can she freely choose one way or the other with a gun pointed at her head?
