"For Epicurus, the purpose of philosophy was to attain the happy, tranquil life, characterized by the absence of pain and fear, and by living a self-sufficient life surrounded by friends. He taught that pleasure and pain are the measures of what is good and bad, that death is the end of the body and the soul and should therefore not be feared, that the gods do not reward or punish humans, that the universe is infinite and eternal, and that events in the world are ultimately based on the motions and interactions of atoms moving in empty space."
Tip of the laurel wreath to Fiery, the Athiest Homeschooler for reminding me of this long forgotten thought experiment from Epicurus that pretty much trumps every other argument I have ever heard.
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent."
"Is he able to prevent evil, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent."
"Is he both able and willing to prevent evil?
Then whence cometh evil?"
Is he neither able nor willing to prevent evil?
Then why call him God?"
Not to be confused with Epicurious where I get a lot of really cool recipes.
