    If man was created in the likeness of God, why do retards (disfigured people) exist? Are they the Devil's offspring?

    John 9 :1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
    2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
    3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

    "but that the works of God (i.e. the mans blindness) should be made manifest in him."

    I think this is pretty evil, don't you think?

    In your first post you said " .. god is evil".
    Now you say " I think ths is pretty evil.."
    Those are two completely different statements ... the second being more accurate.

    I have no personal opinion on the matter.
    Im not too sure what constitutes 'evil'.

    Well, we agree on 'evil' anyway.

    God once killed all humankind but 8 people. Hitler wasn't even near.
    Conclusion: God is more evil than Hitler.

    Did not agree on 'evil'.
    Do you have a clearcut definition of evil?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil says:

    "Evil is used to describe intentional acts that are cruel"

    There is a thread on the subject appropriately titled 'evil'.

    I must point out that some theists would define evil as 'against God' or something similar and therefore God cannot commit evil nor his actions or his persona be called evil. We are nevertheless not required to like his actions. 🙂

    Thanks .. I will have a read of it.

    I am quite sure that the Bible has no requirement for anyone to agree with everything God does and there are many clear instances of God influencing people to carry out evil acts. The book of Exodus repeatedly said that God hardened the heart of Pharoah so that he will not release the Israelites thereby making it possible for God to demonstrate His power to the people of Israel by bringing the plagues on the Egyptians.

    What we refer to as 'acts of evil' are part of Gods plan. I am quite sure that Hitler similarly influenced by God to attempt to exterminate the Jews.

    Hitler killed 6 million people, God killed almost every man on earth at that time.Who is the most cruel one? Hitler believed in god, but he wasn't near of what god did in terms of genocide.
