Claim: God is evil or impotent. Proof: assume that god is neither evil nor impotent. so god is omnibenevolent and omnipotent. fact: infants die horrible deaths in natural disasters (like japan earthquake). fact, infants die and are not spared. assuming god can hear them, then god is evil to ignore their cries. or he is not omnipotent

    dude, stop asserting an opinion. everything occurs for a reason. think about it. why were we building atomic plants in the first place? (written by an agnostic himself)

    if you saw a house on fire, and heard a baby crying, it would be evil to walk by and ignore the helpless baby. true or false?

    Claim: God is evil or impotent. Proof: Assume the contrary, ie God is neither evil nor impotent. Fact: God allows infants to suffer and die in natural disasters who cannot sin or be tested. Fact: A loving god would not allow an infant to suffer and die. Contradiction! Conclusion, we must reject the assumption that god is neither evil nor impotent in which case god is either impotent or evil.

    god hears babies screaming in houses on fire. and in natural disasters, they get squashed like watermelons in earthquakes for example

    if he were to stop the magnetic angular momentum of Earth's core, he may very well be able to prevent an earthquake.

    god prevents earthquake, god has to first stop the rotation of the earth, no rotation, no gravity, no air, death

    if god truly is a diety, god is insubstantial, and so he cannot walk the earth.
