The philosophical problem of evil: 2/7/2017 05:48:14

I personally believe that the philosophical problem of evil can not actually disprove theism since I don't think a theist deity has to be benevolent in any way.

From our current observation deities (sentient entity humanity can not defeat) may or may not exist. However what makes a deity theistic is that the deity demands obedience from His/Her/Its subjects. There is no a priori reason why a theistic deity can not be as harsh as Stalin or Kim Jong-un. There is also no a priori reason why a theist deity can not be cruel just for the sake of it. Hence the philosophical question of evil does not disprove theism.

^So what? A theist deity can be perfectly malevolent and we still have to obey the deity. It's power, not virtue, that makes a deity a deity.

^This is not about being blind. It's about survival. Survive at almost any cost.

Individual survival matters. Species surviving is just an abstract concept.

So you're denying the rights of people who never will have a chance to exist because of your selfishness

Such people do not exist. Hypothetical people have no rights. Only real people do.

No. Stop trolling me. A fetus exists. A hypothetical human (such as your grandchild) does not exist.
