How? Why?

How can anyone read this article and still believe in any kind of god?

A loving and kind god would allow this to happen? Bullshit.

Everything happens for a reason? Bullshit.
The Riddle of Epicurus
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

The devil is the only cause of evil? Isn't god omnipotent? Couldn't he prevent horrors like this from happening if he wanted to? Then he must not want to. He must have a "reason" for allowing this to happen. I can not accept the "goodness" or "higher purpose" of any god who would allow something like this (or any other horrible thing) to happen to a child.

I have higher standards than that.


  • This is a great site. You commented on my site http://awesomegirl.typepad.com Freudian Slippers. I will put you on the blogroll. Have a look at www.solohq.com which was started by a fellow New Zealander.
