Perhaps suffering is not evil.
Or reality: the whole suffering son act was bogus. I could say, I heard the elephant holding up the planet the other day and he was bitching about the turtles underneath him wanting a backrub, just as valid an argument. God cares nothing about the fate of humans. In fact, if anything, all the suffering, cancers, deaths by weapons and such, is gods way of keeping the population from going through the roof.
Like 8 billion is not ALREADY through the roof......
The main reason I posted is it seems clear HUMANS feel pain and suffering of others. If a god does, it is not telling US about it. It all seems clear to me, even assuming there is some kind of god who made the universe and all that, it is a zero appearing god and all the bullshyte tales of the bible are just that: bullshyte, tales made up to convince the flock to behave. After the first few bullshyte tales are written down, by now it is hundreds of years later, THAT generation is totally programmed by the parents and the priests or whatever you want to call the alleged go between dude. Even the second gen of people after books like that are written are now programmed to believe it even though they would never see or hear a real god directly.
