The Nature of the Gods
To many unbelievers, atheists and monotheists alike, the fact that evilness exists in the world is a good argument for there not being god(s), but I feel this is inadequate considering the Gods aren’t entirely custodians of all things man. Even within the Christian religion does it give man dominion all things material so why would their God intercede every single day to save humans? The Gods treat us like our parents do in that when we do something stupid it is up to us to fix, not our parents. As adults and as human beings birthed by the Gods we have free will which we savor with each breath we take and the Gods, like our parents, aren’t blind to our lust of individualism and liberty. In fact, the Gods encourage it regularly without the iron-fisted intervention the Christians expect from their God. If we ask, aka pray, for the Gods to help they will, but up to a point since any further would tread over the free will we enjoy. To ask for such things as riches wouldn’t bestow riches instantly, but muse into your mind an idea that will lead to such, if you truly listen for it.
If the Gods intervened daily to stop evilness then how in the name of the Gods would we even know how to live, how to survive, how to even innovate in order to eradicate disease? We wouldn’t for all things would be provided for by the Gods, but Gods aren’t tyrants. Instead, they give us free will and liberty to do stupid evil things and to figure out why we do stupid evil things and then to make sure that we stop stupid evil things from happening in the future because that is the responsibility we have to endure in order to remain free beings as a whole. If the atheists want proof of the existence of the Gods and the Christians want an overbearing God to rule over all, then so be it unto them, but not the rest of us who truly adore freedom even with the consequences that tend be either good or bad. That’s life and that’s how the Gods created it.
