God can't guarantee that some creatures won't sometimes choose to act badly. God can't guarantee that that world won't contain evil. All evil in the world is the result of free actions by created creatures and there is no possible world God could have created that contains a better balance of both moral good and evil. The Free Will Defense concludes that God is omnipotent, omniscient, and wholly good, and God creates free men who sometimes preform morally evil actions is not contradictory or necessarily false. "It is possible that God, even being omnipotent, could not create a world with free creatures who never choose evil.
Ultimately, someone holds the power, but the idea projected by the society’s existence itself is unquestionable equality. This being said, there isn’t much depth to the scripture, as looking too deep will lead you to a dead end. There is little logic behind it, and overall doesn’t make too much sense. An individual pledging for its entire community by themselves without their own identity is one large paradox that doesn’t add up, no matter which way you try to solve
“… [Humans] don’t have a ‘nature,’ contrary to all other beings and things in the universe; we exist in the world, with freedom to choose our path, and thus our existence precedes our essence. But that puts us in a state of anguish, from which we would like to escape (in bad faith), but we cannot, because we are condemned to be free” (Rosenstand, 2018, p. 515). Jean-Paul Sartre’s philosophy of virtue ethics stands in contraction to many, believing that human life is without predetermined meaning, whether by divine appointment or via evolutionary growth. Sartre further defines this history debating, “… man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world – and defines himself afterwards… Man simply is… Man is nothing else but that which he makes of himself… [and] that it puts every man in possession of himself as he is, and places the entire responsibility for his
The state of nature is in this way not immoral, but instead amoral. There is no justice or property, just sane pride. We utilize investigative thinking, the derivation through 'if/then' experience, to accomplish the best utility, yet we can never be sheltered to appreciate it. In this lawless, pre-societal condition, there is permit and outright positive freedom. While Hobbes utilizes Laws of Nature in his argumentation, they are not pervasively tying, but rather apply just when one's life is secure.
It is difficult to objectify the subjective ideas when it comes to real experiences. This is because a real experience for every individual is not the same. Therefore, critics believe that the conclusions made from the subjective experiences are almost impossible to verify due to unreliable research in humanism. In addition, they believe that humanism is not a true science due to there is too much of involvement of common sense rather than objectivity. Moreover, humanism only approaches the good side on growth and the achievements of humans by simply denying and does not attempt to prevent or make clear of the psychotic disorder.
A proposition that is A priori is based on reasoning or knowledge that follows from theoretical deduction rather than from observation or experience. A strong argument that Descartes describes but rejects is the GOD Example where he states that GOD would have the omnipotence required to deceive us, even in rational thought. But, although he says that GOD could deceive us, that GOD wouldn’t because of he/she/it out not to. GOD is essentially perfectly good, therefore never does anything ought not to do. (Descartes “GOD = Good”).
He can do things beyond our thinking. If He has the power to do things beyond our imagination, how come there are still imperfections in our world? How come there are people who oppose Him? Atheism is the absence of belief in any gods or spiritual beings . They still follow moral codes like us; nevertheless they can create decisions without the help from God.
Just like Juliet, people don’t notice the freedom they have until something righteous or miserable has occurred. One choice can be detrimental to one’s life. Nevertheless, it is hard to conceptualize the whole concept of free will, due to different perspectives and opinions. Despite the fact that free will may be inconclusive and controversial to readers, every effect has its cause and it can guide you into a position you never contemplated being
This means that even thought descartes can not see God he still believe in him, and anything that have anything evil like actions who knows it did not come from God. So in the end Descartes arguments may appear convincing but with the propers resources and plenty of research this leaves Descartes problem of error
Another strong strength is that emphasis is laid on individual’s own experience and viewpoints. Looking at the major weaknesses of existentialism, it can be pointed out that it is based on philosophical concepts that are not practical and are somehow vague. Because of this, it is not empirical in nature, and it is non scientific and hard to confirm with science. Therefore it is problematic to many people as they believe that it is impossible to know how true or how well its works if it is not scientifically proven. I found it appealing when Sartre mentioned that there is “no proof of souls or spirits or ghosts or deities and thus their existence is nothing other than what people make a decision to believe”Pecorino (2000).
Why the Problem of Evil Suggests There is No God The typical definition of God is an omniscient, omnipotent, perfectly good being. A perfectly good God is expected to protect His creations from evil and/or stop any form of it from happening, but that is not the case in our world. People are responsible for so much pain and suffering today that the problem of evil as John Hick explained is the most believable explanation as to why I do not think there is a God. Hick states that God is universally described as omniscient, omnipotent, and perfectly good. These three facts should make the world seem like paradise, but that is obviously not the case.
