    This whole argument is flawed. It does not answer the question of why the innocent are made to suffer, it talks only about unfulfilled desire. What about the child born with a horrible disease? What about the torments of the totally innocent?

    If this kind of thinking is to even be considered, these questions must be answered - and they cannot be because a fair and just God would not allow such things. There are only two answers that are reasonable:

    1) There is no God.

    2) God cannot intervene, for whatever reason.

    Any other answer implies a cruel and unjust God.

    YAY! I'm quite pleased with the form of this article. Seems the author had some training in philosophy and logic. I don't necessarily agree with the content but the form is nice.

    I wish we could all argue as logical and civil.

    Do you have the link to the website so I can get the whole article?

    Great question, and one that deserves an answer I don't have time to give right now. MTF.

    I for one would like to know 'all of those reasons' and I can't conceive of what they could possibly be.

    We lie, just like everyone else.
