"The problem of evil. I think I remember in the bible where god says he creates good and he also creates evil. Oh, well. There went your free will. Maybe he's doing a test or a survey, but he is said to already know the results."

Welcome, Jason! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.
