When should an omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent Being be expected to do anything god-like? Here's our take on the subject.

Put simply, Epicurus' questions with some nice visuals, courtesy of The Thinking Atheist.

Hey, I'll call their ersatz god FRED if I feel like it.  If they don't like that, that's their choice; they CHOOSE to get bent out of shape about something that has no demonstrable existence.

Meantime, Epicurus' questions remain valid ... and typically without cogent answers ... from JWs or any other believer.

That's OK, Debra,.. I knew that about the Jehovah thing,and, I am so glad that u r away from those nuts. My friend cares for me a lot and feels that I should have the right to think what I wish ! Lucky me ! After knowing my JW for 40 some odd years,.. we started having those endless, meaningless arguments. Just wouldn't let it go, or , that Watchtower bull that I wouldn't line a birdcage with !lol I did a lot of defensive research during that time and learned a lot, though I know little about the Amish, I'd almost like to play like I was one ,.. just for a while(I think it's the farm boy in me). Thanks for the stuff you told me, I can add it to my research of religions and mythologies. You probably know that they(JW's) have finally thrown King James in the trash can, where he belongs ! Yes,. they are so smart that they decided to translate the scripts themselves,..yelp. They call it, da daa, "The New 'World' Translation" Maybe u can help me with something I don't understand. How does my JW justify remaining friends with me ,.. I don't get it ? I thought that was really,really bad. I ,of course, have no quarrel with anything , as long as we stay cool about that weird shit ! What's the deal,. shouldn't this person not associate with me? Isn't it punishable?

Loren, I have posed that question many times to a JW friend of mine, saying that I didn't think it mattered what we called it, at one point suggesting that,Trash can, was one of my favorites ! Well,..even though I was gracious enough to point out that I did start,Trash, with an uppercase T. He refused to see my humor ! The nerve of some people !  lol
