    Here is something I found randomly when I was doing random things, what are your thoughts:
    "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus)

    Is Man willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? "

          Yep, and now something even more random about a god.
          Funny thing, when I have random thoughts, they are random, not locked blindly on a subject with a burning agenda! lol

    It just crossed my mind to do this:
    omnipotent -  "Having unlimited or universal power, authority, or force; all-powerful."
    Malevolent - "Having or exhibiting ill will; wishing harm to others; malicious." or "Having an evil or harmful influence"
    just though I'd add that big_smile
