I am astounded at the hoops Ben is jumping through trying to rationalize good and evil and the "greater good." I really wanted Reggie to bring up the Noah story in response. Since God had a "second chance" (why he would need one is beyond me) to remove evil from the world, which was his intention with the flood, and since he is omniscient he obviously knew he would fail, why did he save Noah and his family, when he knew evil would still continue. Why not just start from scratch or do nothing since we ended up in the same spot anyway? Not too omniscient or all-loving in that story, huh. Where was the greater good in drowning almost every living thing on the planet when he knew it would change nothing in the end. -Peg
