    But why do we have to actually experience bad in order to appreciate good?
    Why does a Zebra have stripes?

    It is a just-so story to obfuscate the conflict of bad things and a god that gives a fuck all the while not doing a thing to show the god actually gives a fuck.

    But for some reason, God not only allows bad, he allows bad to be suffered in secret. Serial killers going uncaught for years, that makes God an accomplice in every death. Not just an omniscient witness, but a fully accessory before, during and after the fact.
    Good luck in court... Dershowitz is god's lawyer.
    Not only is he the one thinking about eht killer so (in Berkeley's view) the killer will exist, he's also thinking the knife into persistent existence, and the shovel, and the unmarked grave, and the fire that destroys the evidence, and the souvenir the killer keeps under his porch...
    And does fuck-all to reveal any evidence, to inform any witnesses, to save any victims...
    Thoughts and prayers man, thoughts and prayers.

    Well, any myth held by an atheist is an atheist myth. In toto a long list I expect.

    I open up the fridge, take out three eggs, crack them, fry them, and eat them. They now are no longer existent. So when does God stop seeing eggs? If my actions cause things to no longer be persistent objects, so even God must accept that fact, Why would God accept that rapist murderer John is about to cause Jane to die horribly and no longer be a persistent object? Why doesn't God have a say in all of this? Or maybe God just does not care.

    Should the question not occur to the believer, "Why is my god acting like an atheist?
