    If God can't stop human suffering, he ain't God.

    If God won't stop human suffering, he ought to be abandoned and forgotten like any bad parent.

    If God is the source of human suffering, we're in even bigger trouble than I thought.

    Also, there must be a rock around that God made that God can't lift, right?

    That would be Saint Peter actually, since he is the one who is traditionally holding the keys to heaven. :p

    The god-god. Created by god-god-god. It's actually a fractal - but when you zoom out sufficiently far and look at it, you see Steve Allen.

    All of the answers are in the link above.

    Below is the short version:



    Is there suffering in Heaven? If no, then is there free will? If yes, then it is theologically possible for there to be a world where there is free will and no suffering. If this is the case, then why doesn't a loving, caring god just create such a world in the first place?

    I could quote Miyamoto Musahi about respecting the gods but not relying on them, or stating that no where in any holy books that says god id your pursonal genie who grants wishes but...

    [​IMG] this is more funny

    ITT: Trolls and people who honestly think that in the 1400 years of Islam, the 2000 years of Christianity, and the 5000 years of Judaism, nobody ever thought of this question before.
