Their point would be that God put the apple there and knew that Eve would eat it so he planned it that way.
They all live, eat and die and it is enough for them. There is no interest in why we might be here and the reason why.
So why did God make it a sin to eat the apple? Original sin should have been when Adam and Eve indulged in sexual activities.

Again, prove that animals don't have a range of emotions.

Unfortunately, humans aren't the only purveyors of war; primates wage tribal battles as well. Social insects like ants, bees, and hornets make us look like amateurs. We're the only species that justifies it, though.

I don't see this as sad; it's her way of breaking away from an image that's both confining and ludicrous at her age. I heard many such comments when daniel radcliffe did "equus", with its violence and nudity. But it was a shrewd move that told people he's not a minor anymore. Think of all the child stars who weren't allowed to grow up, which caused them to crash and burn.

I get that ..But did you think the performance showed talent ..at all .

And the little girls who looked up to her .

??? There are acting jobs ..even videos THAT could show her as an adult That didn't have to be so awful ..IMO

That's sad ....I know, some stars go for shock value ...I think it stupid ..But like Madonna had talent for instance .

This again was just awful and sad .

But hey it got attention ...the THING that's important in today's society .

She makes tons of money ...then spits in the face of every parent who paid for their kids to buy her brand .

Miss Cyrus is an adult. Her choices are not my problem...if her dad hadn't been so gung-ho for her to be in show-biz, she may not have gone down that particular road.

This, in my opinion, is a helluva lot sadder.

Please don't ask me why such a fickle being as your supposed "god" does anything.

I already told you what I think about this. Ant farm. Remember?

<quoted text>Animals are predators so, in fact, they wage war on the weak. The Biblical story about Eve and the apple is an attempt to explain evolution.
Remember that the serpent also turned into a snake.
Animals kill to eat, and to protect their young. They don't 'wage war' on their food. They just kill it, eat it, and waste very, very little of it, if any...what they do leave, is utilized by other animals, plants, and bacteria.

Men wage war for natural resources, and kill each other for fun. Big difference.

The Biblical story about Adam and Eve was an attempt to fix blame. Guess where the Bible fixes it - hint: it's not on the snake.

My dog has more conscience than most humans. If you don't think animals have emotions, I pity you....because you're blind.

Obviously that is,horrid ...AND we have just had here a,long discussion
Regarding our helping the hungry ..we can keep discussing if you think
We SHOULD..fine.

That doesn't make her performance less awful . And sad to say it's a sign of the times

Preteens have made her their hero ..And she PROFITS FROM THAT .
Is she so upset about Her Hannah fame she will donate all that money to feed the hungry ...

Talk about biting the hand that STILL FEEDS HER ..

SHE,is an adult ..And responsible for her Own actions,now,.

Many ways,to showcase,talent ..this,showed NONE..IMO.

personally will not buy one thing related to her for my granddaughter

Hope all follow suit .

We talk all day on how,impressionable kids,are ..this is a slap to every parent of a preteen and teen girl out there ..IMO.

"The concept of free will evades you."
No, it does not.
It absolutely does.
But it's ALSO irrelevant to my point,.
It couldn't be more relevant.

and does not negate said point
It negates it completely

Which is that for an omniscient, omnipotent being that created everything, everything is part of their plan, or it wouldn't exist. What we choose to do about things has nothing to do with it.
Completely false. If his "plan" is that you is that you WILL choose A and not B that means he has predestined your choice and he has imposed his will on your choice, which would mean the concept of free will is thereby non existent.
On the other hand if in fact you are empowered with free will and are free to make your own choice, the fact that he knows what choice you will make ( he has to know as he is omniscient)does not alter the fact that you were still free to make that choice.
Had that choice been part of his so called plan, it would have meant he had imposed his will on your choice in which case you never really did possess free will.
Simple concept really. Your failure to grasp it reveals very superficiallogical reasoning skills on your part.

Since the concept of free will had nothing to do with my point, no, it's not relevant, and it doesn't negate my point. That you wish to deflect from the fact by attempting to make it part of my point is just a strawman argument.
