Michael Rod idiot you just made my day,the most influential philosopher in the 20century is idiot 😂😂😂😂
Isaiah 45:7 "I am the LORD your God, I bring the light and create darkness. I bring prosperity and create disaster. I, the LORD your God, do all these things." 
hahahha..."the devil made the world when God is not looking..."
@watty024 Dirk Nowitzki..
@watty024 ... "IF" is a BIG factor above... Now, plainly, sure there is absolutely NO supporting evidence for a god(s), case-closed.
@watty024 You accept that God creates the conditions in which a being has free will, but you then undermine yourself by saying "we only know what the result of its' free choice will be". Creating a robot that can do as it likes, but then creating ALL the conditions in which its choices are made, is the same as a program. Fictional charactors, in their own world, act with "free will". They do as they choose, but the way they act and the conditions are set up. This is just like any God.
@watty024 haha Are you possibly an intellectual GIANT!? (Not)
@watty024 Isn't it odd how we can have such simple disagreements, but draw this out this far? You don't believe in God nor do I, as far as I can draw from our verbal exchange, yet we scwabble like we had good sense. It seems I am incapable of understanding what you mean, as to how a God who knows things before he does them can have created anything that could do something other than It's will, but nevertheless I find you intriguing.
@watty024 The analogy stands as the author is creating a reality for charactors in which he know what they will do, when they will do it, and in what manner. God creates these charactors, knowing what they will do, then condemns them for acting like he made them to? Lol a news story? Fail... he not only is covering it, but he simultaneously is the story an caused the story, knowing how it would play out. God not only knows what you will do but he made you that way by definition.
@watty024 It doesn't seem like you are hetting this concept, Mr. Guy. If you believe, as I assume you do, that a God created everything and that he has knowledge of everything (omniscience), then by definition your God made us; to steal words from that other dude your speaking to, we are but charactors in a novel, one that your God authored. Rationalizing seems to be the theist's domain. Your arguments cannot stand against a skeptical breakdown of your claims and you know it.
