Homework question (just for fun)

A chance for some light conversation.

My 13 year old son, ryan, has just presented me with his homework.

It starts with a question.

If God exists, why does he let bad things happen?

This piece of work gives you the opportunity to show your understanding of a difficult philosophical problem, the problem of suffering.

Your task.
God has agreed to be interviewed on the newsnight programme, the interview should be all about the existance of suffering in the world and the reasons why many theists have a problem with it and the reasons god has for letting it happen.

Dont forget, as the interviewer, you need to really challenge God and his answers.


For me, the question may as well be,

If santa exists, why dont all the children get presents?

So, lets see what enlightened homework we can return ryan back to school with :giggle:

You really couldnt make this shyte up could you, my first answer to ryan was, does he exist in the first place in order to be on the programme, if not, homework done.

My answer would be that God was an astronaut who landed here a millenium ago and planted the seed of humanity. He said he would return one day to check on progress, but due to interstellar travel at the speed of light, he's only just on his way back and he is late. As for the suffering, the cunts he left the legacy to look after the books have well and truly cooked the books and our fucking goose. end of homework. Amen.

The creator gave man natural law.
Man breaks natural law.
Man therefore suffers a punishment.
The creator doesnt make man suffer, man does.
The creator doesnt let bad things happen, man does.

In order for man not to suffer, he must live by natural law.

There are no questions on this subject that man could ask the creator, to ask a question would be to demonstrate that man does not yet understand and to question the creator would be against the rules according to the bible.
The same bible that is held so dear to the establishment, which all oaths are made on, thus question the bible you question the establishment and its authority.

Are we allowed to do that?

The above is the answer to the question, would love to know the schools answer.

If the school say yes to the above then they cannot punish the child when he challenges the schools authority for that is what they are teaching him, to challenge the authority of the state and crown. (Possibly treason)

You are God and God is you. Why are you asking me this question when you already know the answer?

Good answers, i can see us getting a gold star for this :giggle:

Its such a typical worded piece of homework isnt it. The homework, to my mind is so common purpose orientated, its trying to say something without directly saying it.

They are teaching the kids to question god, yet if you believed in god, then its something you wouldnt do and if you dont believe in god you still wouldnt question him as he wouldnt exist in your mind. You cant question something that isnt there.

Perhaps the school should provide proof that he does exist and is available for interview.

As a pagan, my idea of a god and what they can and cannot do is very differant to that of a christian god according to the bible.

GOD, Government Organised Destruction, allah (al lah) the law, the law is in place it cannot be changed and the suffering is placed within each for a lesson, no death, only ascension, here after, no suffering, here and now suffering, :grin:
