A reply to this girl? Is it worth it?


What I said:


My non-belief in an Abrahamic God is not due to ethics, how ever they do provide a lot of reason why Yahweh is not ethical.
I don't believe in the Abrahamic God because its impossible to be all-knowing and all-powerful. Could God change his future mind?
Why did God create mankind to begin with if he had nothing to gain from it, since he is all powerful and perfect?
her reply: My friend helped answer so this is what he said-->

*first off it is not impossable to be omnipotent and omnicient- the two are not exclusive. God cannot change His mind in fact the Bible declares that He is the same yesterday today and forever. There are instances of 'anthropromorphic' expression in the Bible though

God needs nothing- therefor did not 'need' to create anything- God being perfect and all powerful and love demonstated these things in creation. Creation can offer to God what God allows creation to offer Him

why do you pressupose that God being all perfect and powerful wud not 'create'

My friend ask this 2 reviel 2 things...

Ethics are subjective- Hitler was ethical in his own eyes. so why do u determine what is ethical for God- a being infinitly beyound her capacity to understand

ur making assumptions on stuff ur evidently is not aquianted with

I hope u find this helpful please ask any questions and tell me what you think

God Bless:heart:

I got a daily devianation on deviant art, so ruining my page by starting drama with her may be a bad idea, so I decided not to reply to her since it wouldn't be worth my time...

in short — no.

So... God is omnipotent, but cannot change his mind? Hmm.

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?"
- Epicurus

It's sad that she had to find a friend to provide a reply for her. If she's not willing to think for herself, there's probably not going to be much use in replying to her, unless you're just itching to see more terrible grammar.

Back in the early 90's I use to go into the AOL chat rooms and argue with theists. After a year or so, I realized you can't reason with someone who has an absolute, blind belief in a Stone Age delusion. For me, the "challenge" of debating them wore off long ago. I stopped worrying about their delusion and now I'm thankful for a website like this one.

The spelling and grammatical errors alone would take a long time to fix.

If you have to ask, it probably isn't worth it.

I was thinking of replying with something like this:
I have already found more peace and happiness in atheism then I ever found in being a superstitious person who wished for eternity. I also request that your friend doesn't slaughter the English language when talking to me, nor makes baseless assumptions about what I know as a person.
