I was actually shocked by the power of the arguments I found which, as I say in the paper, show that not only is it irrational to believe in an omnibenevolent, just deity given the problem of evil, such as the frequency of undeserved suffering in the world, e.g. the suffering of children, it is immoral. I.e. it is a morally indefensible position to either ignore or attempt somehow to explain away the problem of evil (undue suffering) in support of the idea of a just god. I just blew your mind, didn't I? :-)

 

I particularly enjoyed the two analogies comparing Yahweh to a lifeguard who purposely drowns his own children (and how do you defend that and still call him a just god?) and to a magician-king who offers to "save the world" if you would only let him have one of your children first to anally rape and barbecue. The question one cannot seem to get past in this second example: tell me again why you need to do this to my son first before you save the world? Couldn't you just save the world without ass-raping and torturing little boys, you sick bastard?

 

Ah man, I had a lot of fun writing this one, I hope you get a comparable amount of satisfaction from reading it. Let me hear your comments!
