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.
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 can't talk about cats for long, though. I'm very allergic to them.
That's quite the allergy!
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.

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.
Yup, it is called conscience.

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

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

ABORTION AMERICA'S #1 KILLER

by Pastor Greg Wilson

There is currently at work in our nation a most dangerous killer. It consistently takes more lives than any disease, famine, or war we have ever faced.

Every month this killer takes more American lives than were lost in the entire Vietnam War. Every six months more die from its relentless onslaught than in all our previous wars combined or in all the fatal automobile accidents of the past twenty years. Every 2 to 3 years it claims more victims than the Nazi Holocaust.

WITCH ONE IS MORE A EVIL KILLER/ KILLING BABIES OR ADULTS?

TWO EVILS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT!

God will not hold this nation guiltless for this great bloodbath. Indeed, the Bible tells us that He hates “hands that shed innocent blood”(Proverbs 6:16-17). Certainly, there can be none more innocent than the unborn.

Abortion advocates ignore these innocent victims of abortion. Testimony given at U.S. government sponsored public hearings indicated that in the so-called family planning clinics:“The baby is dehumanized as much as possible by being termed a ‘blob,’‘products of conception’ or ‘uterine contents.’ Not even the term fetus is used by counselors.”

God however has a different view of the unborn. He told the prophet Jeremiah,“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”(Jeremiah 1:5). He said of John the Baptist:“For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.”(Luke 1:15). Clearly, God views the unborn as human and precious.

Of course not. I don't 'place' ANY animal on a higher level than any other. I recognize us all as being part of the wheel of life. Wheels are round, and have no high point.

Ok, I will. I do love my cats. I also had the smartest dog that was ever born. Her instincts were incredible.
