: : ***Mosquitos hunt us for food. : : If it is so easy for the world to become imperfect,(of miilibar of pressure) then how do you call this world perfect. : : I guess the only perfect part is the range between just above sea level (with few exceptions) to say 16km above sea level, this hardly comprises the world, so it is a currently semi-perfect biosphere, not whole world. : : It is foolish to think god would withhold the tree knowledge from his image of himself to begin with, you know how vain he is! : : Furthermore, how could we have the free will to chose to/not to eat the fruit if the fruit contained the knowledge we needed to make that choice? So that would leave us as a creation that has learned its acceptable behavior but force? : : My dog does not rebel against me because he knows I am more powerful, so how could we have done so if we had limited knowledge?

: : Excellent point. Unfortunately I didn't even consider arguing from his own theology. Thanks for the ammo, I'll certainly rip off your idea to use on unsuspecting theists in future arguments (I hope you don't mind).

***These are questions one must ask of oneself during thier own search for spirituality if they are serious at all, and if considered honestly, lead one away from dogma (god exists...) toward a personal understanding of oneself. I'd love to be ripped off under these circumstances.
