My apology on "conquor" I meant to stroke the (e) please disregard the error
I've certainly never seen any evidence of good conquering all evil.
Neither one conquers. Without one, the other cannot exist. There is a fine balance between the two. Judging by the photo you've seen Star Wars...
It's the same way here in the real world.
Obviously, good does not always conquer evil, or evil would not exist. I believe the only reason it exists at all is because God has given us free will.
Define good and define evil, and only after will you be able to make a comparison and to say who conquers who. The notions of good and evil are so relative that maybe what for you is pure evil, for another person could mean the absolute good.
For further information try reading Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil.
I disagree with what Benoitsmidget says: "because God has given us free will." - which means without free will - there can be no good/evil which is the self-guarding guilty slave thinking - but the alternative is even much worse: 'I must believe in free will - I have to or I'll go suicidal"
In addition, all chaos says is that there is no way to prove human have free will. "Indeterminism does not confer freedom on us" - From http://hubpages.com/hub/QuantumIn4
#1 - God cannot have free will. A benevolent god always chooses the path that causes most good so therefore has no real choice.
#2 - If God, angels and other beings in heaven have free will where there is no evil or suffering, then it cannot be true that god lets evil exist because it is a required side-effect of free will.
#3 - God did not make the Universe or there is no God

God is perfectly MORAL. Morality is in always doing that which is RIGHT. Doing what is RIGHT requires one to know what is right from what is WRONG. God always knows what is right from what is wrong because God KNOWS EVERYTHING. But doing what is right and NOT doing what is wrong implies that there...

Why is God only praised for the Good, never blamed for the Bad?People have often stated that they are offended or at least find it offensive if God is blamed for the Evil in the world (or that happens to people), but praise Him for the Good. Did God not create everything - including Good and...

William Lane Craig, the eminent Christian philosopher, claims in response to the problem of evil:"1. We are not in a good position to assess with confidence the probability that God lacks morally sufficient reasons for permitting the suffering in the world. Whether God's existence is...

If God the father almighty cannot lie & cannot do evil then is he NOT all powerful?Considering the God of classical theism is all loving, all merciful and all good - considering that he can do no wrong, cannot be evil, and cannot abuse us, is he then NOT all powerful?

Can you help but do evil? I do not see how. Do you?And if you cannot, why would God punish you?Christians are always trying to absolve God of moral culpability in the fall by putting forward their free will argument and placing all the blame on mankind.That usually sounds like ----God gave us free...

How does free will explain or justify the existence of evil?Many Christians have told me that evil is a necessary byproduct of having free will. This doesn't seem to be true to me, given the following thoughts:1. If free will exists in heaven, and evil does not, it is possible to have free...
