Epicurean Concepts.

([msg=37363]see Epicurean Concepts.[/msg])

Epicurus was a greek philosopher, who basically cast the concepts of worshipping a God or Gods in a bad light with his famous quotes. Ill list some and put a link to his quotes.

Is God willing but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is God able but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is God both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is God neither able nor willing?
Then why worship God?

If Gods listened to the prayers of men, all would have quickly perished for they are forever praying evil against one another.

Link^^^ obviously
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?”

This, like many many other obvious logical flaws in religious ways of thinking, is just simple sense. Just like, for example, the paradox of omnipotence, to name one. I'm surprised more people don't conclude this themselves, philosopher or not :?

GOD is fair
and that is the root of all reasons
the code for the void exception between the ear brackets
Code: Select all
public static }void(exception x = new exception(null)){

ok my brackets dont realy look like ears.
if you didnt get that it means there is nothing(no brains) between your ears.
