In what other species do we recognize 'evil'?

Do we call it 'evil' when a shark eats a swimmer in it's territory, or do we call it, like that shark does,'lunch'?

Come on, Grumpy - humans are the only species with a capacity to recognize 'evil' because we're the only one who exhibits it.

If our capacity to recognize 'evil' makes us superior, it only makes us superior to ourselves. How does that work?

Try again?

Good evening all!
Well, Mom and Dad were both discharged yesterday afternoon and are both back at home now--Mom didn't have to go to a secondary rehab unit after all--much to her relief!
They're both going to receive P-T three times a week, at home, as well as periodic visits from an R.N. to make sure that they're adhering to their prescribed schedules.
My sincerest thanks to everyone who's wished us well, and I'm tentatively hoping that things around their house will continue to slowly "improve."
Best,
John.
Glad to hear that, John!

Yes it does but I'm am contend to let these jerks consider themselves comparable to a baboon. I wonder which one of them wants the recognition as the closest relative.

Someone here made the point that humans can think in abstracts. "Evil" is an abstract. Apply your 2nd sentence.
We do have Vegans.

I would say that there is something different in our makeup that allows for animals to eat their young without being considered evil where a human would be totally evil. Perhaps we are the superior species. At least some of us are. The others probably would eat their young.

I thought you were smarter than this, but apparently not so much.

Regardless of vegans, you have still made my point: If we're the only species which commits evil, and thusly, the only one which recognizes it, it hardly makes the case that we are 'superior' to all other animals.

You can try again if you like.

<quoted text>You must have missed the part where I DON'T acknowledge your deity, or his 'omnipotence'. As I've said ad nauseum - I don't believe in your god.
I didn't miss anything. Of course I know you don't believe.
But this discussion, at least on YOUR end, was a theoretical one, remember ?( "If"....."then " ):

"If god allows free will, he has no plan. If god has a plan, there is no free will. You CANNOT have it both ways, no matter how many times you bruise your heels on the floor, babe."

Now, your attempted deflection aside, back to the question :

How is it possible that a (theoretical)omnipotent deity could not create a being with free will ?
The fact that an omnipotent 'god' doesn't exist, is a fact your limitless self-deception skills prevent you from accepting.
Only your opinion. Cease stating it as definitive fact.
You're very delusional, prick.
Man, you can be goaded from condescendingly patronizing to angry on a dime.
You're easy flappy.

You would say that you are smarter than your cat, even though he's the one getting free meals, using a designated litterbox (which you keep clean for him) and leaving messes in your house without being evicted... and you're the one who uses fossil fuels, thus, in effect, defecating where you eat.

Who cares what you would say?

Your strawman was in insisting free will is part of my point. It is not.
"His omniscience allows him to know what that being's choices will be but he can very well choose to not exercise his omnipotence to control the choices that being makes."

And such a lack of action would ALSO be part of his plan, then.
Precisely, his plan is that you are free to exercise choice without his dictating which choice you will make. The fact that he knows what you will choose does not alter that fact.

The poster Ink mentioned that she believes that God does not want man to behave badly. You admonished her by saying that is not what you said and that she was twisting your words. But at the same time you claim that God's plan includes all....both bad and good.

So please tell me....what God creates a plan that he does NOT WANT to come to fruition ?

I'm allergic to cats, but ive learned to cope with it over the past few years. Still, some days are worse than others.

It was not what I'd said. Sorry, but it wasn't.

By the way, the conversation has moved on. No one else cares any longer.

Humans who get free meals, craping in a litterbox, and soil there houses enough to be evicted are not considered smart or kept in any high regard. Probably worse than a dumb animal who doesn't know better.

It is interesting what you admire.

"Perhaps we are the superior species. At least some of us are. The others probably would eat their young."

Is that the "humility" I hear Christians refer to and often talk about, Ink?

Sweet, and I feel bad in that I didn't even know. My visits are sporadic. Nice to know that it's better!:D
