In a universe where this "GOD" is all powerful, humans do not have free will. We are only able to do what meets with the approval of "GOD". If we could go against his will, that would make us more powerful than "GOD". A being is either capable of making all the universe as it desires, or not. If it is capable, the state of the universe at all times is his will. Any other being capable of making decisions is therefor only capable of making decisions that align with the will of "GOD". That is the freedom a slave has to do only what the master allows.
Of course there's no good reason to believe that any such beings exist.
Let me repeat myself! I do not deal with religions! Anyways, your argument is off of the presupposition of religions and I do not deal with religions.

That is an incorrect conclusion. All that follows is incorrect.

We have no examples of life that did not or does not evolve.

No, evolution is a fact. All life as we know it evolves.

If you're going to borrow the word "GOD" without adhering to the popular cultural definition, you need to define what you're talking about.

Whenever you do that, you'll be defining your religion.

A very good question Doctor. I had the experience of being burned in an Industrial fire while trying to put it out. There’s nothing to compare to the pain of being burned by a hot industrial fire in a chemical plant.
But I must refer to Jesus words. He wished none would parish and that all men would come to repentance.
In my life as an Emergency Responder. We were always taught that our number one duty was to save ourselves. Our second duty was to save our fellow Responders. I would love to be able to save you Doctor. But you refuse to be saved.
I must go on and help those who want to be saved and can’t waste time on those who refuse. Doctor, you are another Harry Randall Truman. Mr Truman refused to leave Mount St Helens in May of 1980. He refused to be saved. When the Mountain blew he lost his life.
I can not save you Doctor, I wish I could, but you won’t let me.
Thats is NOT what I asked. Do YOU think I deserve to go to hell? It's obvious that since I totally reject jesus, your God, if he exists, is sending me to burn forever Do you think this is what I deserve?

You should stop posting in ignorance You have NO idea how the process of evolution works. Please, educate yourself so you don't look so foolish.

It's all part of having choices (free will). To prevent evil from being in this world we would be robots. But instead GOD gave us a choice and the consequence behind this enable people to behave evilly.
It's not GOD creating the evil acts, it's the choices people make.
There is NO such thing as free will. How can it be free will when you must fear the consequences? That is in conflict with the definition of free. I hold a gun to your head and say, "You have free will to give me your wallet or not. But if you don't I'll blow your brains out" Free will means you give or receive without expectation of return.

Your God is said to be all knowing, all powerful, there is nothing that he doesn't know including the future. He can see the pathway you will take, can see your future You can do nothing to change this future. You come to a fork in the road, God see's you have taken the right turn, you can NOT take the left, you had NO FREE WILL. Next!!!

GOD could be creator(s), intelligent designer(s) or a highly advance extra terrestrial civilization that created life on planet earth. The creator(s) is un-identified at the time but seeing bio-diversity as being "fixed" it requires a creator, intelligent designer(s) or highly advance extra terrestrial civilization.

The "ability to choose" exists and this is what I am referring to as free will.

A flat Earth would imply a designer.

Do you believe the Earth is flat?

You're demonstrating a confirmation bias.

All life as we know it evolved and continues to evolve. That is not debatable.

The first five books were written by Moses. For the times he was the equivalent to being a University graduate. The best schools and exposed to the best minds in Egypt.
Then others were written by the prophets of the time. David who did heard sheep at a very young age when on to become a fierce soldier. Cutting off the head of Goliath after taking him down with a sling.
The sling and rocks are still used today as weapons in the region. Then David went on to be a King. The scriptures that he wrote were done as he was King. Then his son Solomon went on to be King and wrote books in the bible.
The Apostle Paul was certainly not a goat herder but a specialized craftsman. Then one book was written by a Medical Doctor.
So this common misconception is really not based on reality but meant to be in jest. A little humor and jab here in there is certainly not going to hurt.[Tipping Hat]
So, you knew all these folks. That's real interesting.

I grew up with a very strong minded Atheist. He was my Father. But the long story short. Dad didn’t die in a Atheist. He came into the light about six months before he died.

Some will not be saved because they have crossed the line with God. Others there may still be hope if they want to be saved.
Thank you for all your efforts, God Bless.......

I never met Abraham Lincoln but I believe what I have read in history about this man. I didn’t know Isaac Newton either but I believe there’s was a man of science and art named Isaac Newton.

So you don’t claim to know any historical figures? Interesting…………

I am not your Judge.

You are the Captain of your own ship Doctor.

You’re headed for the rocky reefs and asking me,“Am I going to crash?”

I didn't say you were my judge, I'll ask one more time, your answer is important. I reject Jesus and according to your God he will send me to burn for all eternity, now......Do YOU think I deserve to be tortured forever? Don't keep hedging with your answer it's a simple yes or no question.
