    Theists will spout their usual bull**** about free will and whatnot, but the Christian God (one of whom's attributes is omnibenevolence), simply couldn't have let it happen, if he truly is all-loving.

    I guess the dudes flying the planes were praying to God that the attack would work, and no one else expected it so they hadn't bothered praying that it wouldn't. God has to pick a side somehow, after all.

    Well i think people largely misunderstand the role of God. He is not there to be the galactic policeman, righting wrongs wherever they occur. He's not a superhero. He is not there to make our lives free of any sadness.

      what's 9/11?
      A rather evil fraction. Most people would prefer that our system went from 8/11 straight to 10/11. There are a few extremists around who say that 9/11 was right and deserves recognition alongside 8/11 and 10/11.

      ...Seriously man...where have you been?

      Problem of evil is such a cliche philosophy topic...

      Most christians (my mum invluded) argue the free will defence case... but even that is extremeley easy to pick holes in.

      I've never understood people who take that position.

      A position of absolute logic would be to say "I'm open to the idea of a God but do not have any evidence to suggest one exists".

      It seems foolish to say absolutely that there is no God.

      another 'lets bash theists thread', great, given pretty much every other thread on this forums eventually descends into this farce.
