When talking to theists, the theist will eventually say something to the effect like "It's part of
gODs plan".

Hmmmm......To me, when I make a plan I'm not sure of the outcome though I hope for a
positive outcome.

Example;

Lets say I want to go from Florida to Arizona. So...I get out my maps, calculator, pencil
and paper and make a list of what I need to do. THIS IS MY PLAN

Will my plan have a positive outcome? It's unknown till I reach Arizona. There WILL be
MANY variables between Florida and Arizona. Like....car trouble, weather, other drivers,
detours and etc.

Now lets look at gODs plan.

gOD has a plan for the world and all the creatures on it. Now here's the problem.

Supposedly gOD is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Omniscient is the most
important when thinking about gODs plan. Omniscient means gOD knows ALL. Past,
Present and Future.

By being omniscient, gOD already knows the outcome of hIS plan. A plan has to have
variables in it. gODs plan has no variables in it.

To me, this makes hIM a vile, disgusting, sadistic, cruel and inhuman deity that knows what
is going to happen and does NOTHING about it. hE just watches all the pain, sorrow and
misery, all the while, knowing all about it in advance. And to quote George Carlin
"But hE Loves You".

Peace

George Carlin.....We Miss You

Comment by Alan Perlman on June 28, 2012 at 11:52am

"God's plan" is the ultimate go-to cop-out by which believers glide past any hint of doubt.  You can never know God's plan, except in terms of what actually happens.

Carlin also listed the ills of the world and said that this was not the work of an omnisicent, loving deity -- but of "an office temp with a bad attitude."
