NightSerf,
Is there evil? No!
What is evil?:
Evil is believed to be any undesirable occurrence which upsets the natural harmony and peace of mind of the earthly man; or yet, anything that causes physical or/and emotional pains, whose occurrence seems purposeless, misintentioned and misdirected.
The so-called evil can be equated to all such human experiences as:
Dying, natural disasters, wars, being undeservedly implicated, injustice, poverty, misery, enslavement, sickness, agonizing pains of the body and mind, misfortunes of the good and fortunes of the 'bad',(malice, violence, injuries, intentional cruelty), divorces, killings, stealing, covetousness, lust, greed, hate, disappointments, rape, unfulfilled dreams, life-failure, regrets, insanity etc.
Whereas, all the above could be summed up as the problem phase of human experiences, requiring solutions for the eventual progress of mankind.
And whatever necessitates solutions towards an eventual upward progress of the human race, do we call that evil?

Let it be known that there is:
No buttocks without its anus; no ear without its wax; no nose without its mucus; no throat without its phlegm; no home without its toilet; no eye without its tears/gum; no restaurant without its kitchen;
No honey without its bees; no feminine beauty without its ugly phases; no sky without its patches of cloud; no love without its passion; no peace without its war; no beautiful vegetation without its dung-hills; no growth without its decay;
No joy without sadness; no death where there is no life; no master without servant; no light without its shadow (darkness?); no pleasurable good without painful good; no day without night,
And so, all those necessary obscure nights, meant for the rejuvenation process of the entire system prior to the golden dawn, shouldn't we yearn for these as necessarily good stages in our ascent towards greater heights? Shouldn't we embrace them as we would the photographer's dark-room, without which the pride of photography may never be realized?

More bollocks from you.

Many types of eyes exist that don't possess tear ducts.

You do know most of those things only exist due to evolution...

A silly sermon that attempts to make the painfully obvious sound profound. No evidence. No logic. and not a scintilla of meaning.

You are not just losing ground: you are losing your grip.

Electrical Engineer,
Let me come down to your level: The debate revolving round the concepts of spontaneous creation, the big bang and evolution, fades into insignificance vis-a-vis the unfathomable beginningless infinite.
Why the fuss over how the universe began, where there wasn't anytime in the past when anything began to exist?
The infinite - in space, in time, in matter and in intelligence, constitute God; as it couldn't have been anything less.

The vast majority of eyes on this planet do not have tear ducts. Therefore, by your logic, eyes with tear ducts are not standard.

You should really stop trying to sound smart, it only hinders your argument.

Just because you don't have an answer does not mean everything god. We are human, it's in our nature to ask why, where, what, when, how. By not doing that you limit yourself and by telling others to stop doing that you hinder the advancement of humans.

Take a look back when religion was the ruling body. Look at how little technology advancement there was. Then look at when religion started losing it's grasp and notice how much shit got invented. Religion puts people in the dark ages as they do not feel the need to expand on their knowledge cause everything is god and why bother?

It's a stupid stance and quite ignorant.

No such stance has ever gained widespread support, even among the religious.

You made the whole thing up.

Always reading my posts upside-down. Going back to the roots promotes no advancement.

How could there be a religion that was not man-made?

Religion is man's method of honoring whatever god he believes.

It would have to be man-made, regardless of whether the god exists.

Oh. Well perhaps you can help me. When did religious people not feel the need to expand their knowledge?

The people of the United States have been largely religious for 250 years. It seems to me we have expanded our knowledge quite a lot.

Charles Darwin had a degree in theology. Did he feel no need to expand knowledge?

Bacon, Kepler, Pascal, Isaac Newton, Boyle, Faraday, Mendel,....

All religious, and felt no need to expand knowledge?

Yes, one of us needs a history lesson.
