How can you allow all of the suffering on this planet to go on without intervening (ie a child dying of starvation every five seconds, plagues, natural disasters, AIDS, child pornography, human exploitation and slavery, malaria, diabetes, etc etc etc)?

I'm just being honest. If I have only one question to ask God, I'm going to ask the Big One (for me, at least).

Which, as beautiful as St. Paul's passage is, is kind of saying: "We humans don't know yet. But one day we will." It doesn't solve the Problem of Evil, in my opinion, but promises that it will all make sense in the end.

I'd still ask.  Smiley

The problem of evil is the fallout of a particular development in Western thought (here use I Western broadly, including the stark Platonism of the East). There really is "no problem".

There are some beautiful answers to the question which are a paragraph long not thousands as in Leibniz.

Reminds me of that episode of Futurama:

God: "Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket."
Bender: "Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money!"
God: "Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all."

How do I build an oracle machine that is in a complexity class no greater than O(log log n) that will solve, in a finite number of sets, any computation problem classifiable within the Kleene hierarchy or within any infinite expansion of any degree of the Kleene hierarchy.

How can you allow all of the suffering on this planet to go on without intervening (ie a child dying of starvation every five seconds, plagues, natural disasters, AIDS, child pornography, human exploitation and slavery, malaria, diabetes, etc etc etc)?


how can we appreciate the gift offered to us if we have no frame of reference for the opposite? simply telling us is not enough for mortal man, we need to see and feel to understand.
