I see that this has been posted 2 or 3 times so maybe I'm replying to a person who isn't interested in having a discussion? I don't know.
But anyway, this conception of god and free will is, in my view, problematic as hell. In fact all free arguments are problematic, especially when used to justify belief in god.
If god created the universe for the sole purpose of ensuring that human beings could freely choose to love him then imagine for a moment how selfish and mean such a god would have to be. We struggle here on Earth every day with disease, violence, heartbreak, terror, and the impending threat of death. God is absolutely SILENT about it. We have a book that some people is the word of god, but god never shows up to tell us one way or the other. We are absolutely blind and left to our own devices. Why? So our choices will not be biased? So god can have a companion that isn't coerced?
Yet coercion is exactly what is going on. When I got saved as a young teen it was because the church I went to scared the crap out of me with talk of hellfire. I freely chose to get saved because I didn't want to be tortured. How is that free will?
No, I reject your hypothesis about reality. If a god exists as described in your post then that god is a selfish, mean, evil being and I have no desire to pay such a being any respect at all.
The free will defense of a Biblical god is, in a word, a dumb argument.
I never get that far in contemplation on the subject... I stop at "That's just Silly" .....

Why would I do that? I love books. Especially ones on myths. Greek mythologies are a joy to read, though not as gory as the bible.

The place for religion is not in the classroom neither should a place for teaching the religion of EVOLUTION be in the classroom.
Why can I label evolution as a religion is because it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in a creator! Religion should be taught at home or your place of worship not the public school classroom

Evolution is fact. The theory of evolution doesn't involve apes becoming humans, if you took a AP Biology class in school, you could learn this. Evolution basically teachs how good genes are passed on to the next generation while bad genes die out, it's natural selection. Please don't get Evolution confused with 'Origins', I believe that's the name of the group teaching about apes becoming humans.

Please excuse me, but you call Evolution a 'religion', this is false. Religion is the practice and/or worshiping of a god or gods...

First EVOLUTION is NOT a proven fact! It is supposed to have happened gradually over millions of years. Since no one was there to see it happen it is exactly what you correctly said,“a theory” which means a wild guess. In other words your guess is as good as mine and if not based on proven facts that is all it can be, a wild guess.

Have you not read the Bible when it answers the queation what happens at death? Ecclesiastes 9:5  For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.
The dead are conwcious of nothing that is why there is going to be a resurrection.
So what is there to get over?

Thank you Lord!
Amen!
First, what does a keyboard have to do with a human? Your twisting things around shows that you know your words are false. Second, humans (and all other living creatures) are evolving. We are taller then people 200 years ago, live longer, plants evolve, animals evolve disease change and evolve. Come on, stop lying to yourself

And every cult says the same thing about being the only way, your right every one is wrong, you are the same as the moonies, harikrishna, charles manson, jim jones, etc....(Science has been PROVEN)

The next time you have the chance to talk to one of Jehovah's Witnesses ask them for the book "LIFE HOW DID IT GET HERE? By evolution or by creation? It is a well researched publication that considers an enormous amount of sources to compile the information. It considers what evolutionists say and compare it with what the Bible says and allows the reader to draw their own conclusion.
