"Alexia, you don't understand. Creating while knowing what would happen is the same as causing. "

"So you don't believe that God created the universe knowing how it would turn out?"

"Is her opinion not that God created the universe knowing what would happen? If so, he caused those things to happen."

"No, you're dodging the point. God caused something bad to happen on purpose. How does this not make him a bad guy? "

Aviel Menter replied to Kara Parker's discussion Is it Immoral to use Fear in Order to Bring People to God?
"If God knows that a bad thing is going to happen, and he made things such that they would happen that way, then he's a bad guy because he caused those things to happen."

"You quoted my paragraph and then ignored what it said. It specifically said that it wasn't just about utility, but it was almost about tautology: the scientific method is true because it defines truth in a consistent way."

""That might be useful, but that doesn't make them true." I guess you didn't read my post."

Aviel Menter replied to Kara Parker's discussion Is it Immoral to use Fear in Order to Bring People to God?
"Yeah, it describes what's in the natural universe, i.e. everything that, in any meaningful sense, exists. I've written a post about it, you can read it  and . It's not entirely related to what you said but it should address your…"

Aviel Menter replied to Kara Parker's discussion Is it Immoral to use Fear in Order to Bring People to God?
"Science hasn't proven that there is no god, but the burden of proof isn't on science. And Science has disproved many claims of Christianity in particular. Look, this is simple, and you're overcomplicating it: using fear to sway…"

Aviel Menter replied to Kara Parker's discussion Is it Immoral to use Fear in Order to Bring People to God?
"Science defines what's true and what's not. And what's true is that cigarette smoking dramatically increases cancer risk, and what's not is true is unsubstantiated, disproven, or occasionally even contradictory religious beliefs.…"

"Yes, but the persuader would be wrong. "
Apr 17, 2013
Aviel Menter replied to Kara Parker's discussion Is it Immoral to use Fear in Order to Bring People to God?
"It depends on who is doing the persuading and for what purpose. Religion is a morally neutral thing, and as such it's not okay to use means that are (by default) harmful to persuade people. However, a parent also has a responsibility to protect…"

"She didn't ask if it was immoral to use fear to persuade people, she asked if it was immoral to use fear to persuade people to be religious."

"Your link does not justify the genocide of the Amalekites. All it does is explain why God ordered it, but that's not justification for killing children. The characteristics that the author thinks are necessary for genocide aren't.…"
