    If at home, would you allow evil, like the rape of your daughter, to happen in front of you without doing anything?

    If you would do nothing then you would be as vile a prick as a god who would follow your lead and also just watch.

    One must then conclude that their is no god, or that if there is, he is a heartless and immoral prick.

    It’s called free will.
    How do you know how much kindness to extend to someone without that kindness being destructive?

    Whose free will? Yours if you do nothing?
    God's who likely has none given that there is no such entity that I know of?
    Or the rapists free willed choice to rape?

    Strange that you seem to equate preventing a rape as a kindness on our parts when I see it more as a duty.

    If you think I am a snowplough parent if I prevent the rape of my daughter, if I had one, then I don't think you are defining that term correctly.

    I would not take all challenges from children. That does not mean that it is ok to let them get raped.

    I don't know about where you come from but here in Canada, there is a law against my allowing a crime to be committed.

    Your anger prevents you from understanding questions.
    Atheists are very angry people.

    You have so much to learn. I'm curious to know how old you are? You come across as a rebellious, angry 16 year old, who thinks he knows everything.
