The evil prosper and the innocent perish

I have been reviewing world history and I am forced to conclude that the evil prosper and the innocent perish. Please find below some of the links which contributed to my conclusion: https://skepticsannotatedbible.com/contra/iniquity.html https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/britain-stole-45-tr...

Why do many people hate vegans?

I have been trying to understand why many people hate vegans. I am the only vegan in my family and extended family. Almost all of my friends are omnivores. I found this article https://www.bbc.com/future/article/2020 ... gan-hatred to be helpful. What do you think?

Re: Omniculpability = Omniscience + Omnipotence

I think omniscience and omnipotence go hand in hand. If one is omniscient, one can use that knowledge to make oneself omnipotent. If one is omnipotent, one can use that omnipotence to become omniscient. Together, omniscience and omnipotence make such a being omniculpable. I am an agnostic atheist. I...

Re: Omniculpability = Omniscience + Omnipotence

Religions are lies used to scam people. All the religions contradict each other because they are all false. I respect everyone's human rights. One of these rights is the right to follow any or no religion. So, I am ok with you being religious. I am ok with 86% of currently alive humans being religio...

What you would love to change but can't?

I would love to prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. I would love to stop all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. I would love to make all living things all-loving, all-knowing and all-powerful and give them an infinite number of universes each but I can't. I would lov...

Omniculpability = Omniscience + Omnipotence

Omniculpability = Omniscience + Omnipotence. If God exists, then, God must be held accountable for failing to prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths. God is not exempt from ethical conduct. Culpability is directly proportional to power. The greater the power, the greater the culpability. Since...

Re: Physics questions

Have you looked at all his others? No, not yet. I am too busy with work and family. Internet searches reveal that no one knows what the mechanism is behind the spooky phenomenon of quantum entanglement. Just as no one knows if the Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics is true or false. We...

Re: Hard conversation about population

Thank you for your reply Coffee. I have watched all of David's nature documentaries and am a fan. The website is failing to mention the most important thing which is that it is not the number of people that's the problem, it's the huge misdistribution and the huge ecological footprints of the rich. ...

Thank you for the link. The website is wrong. As I said before, "Humans are not overpopulated on Earth. We are misdistributed on Earth. We need to be evenly distributed in the habitable areas."

How can we make macroscopic objects entangled? How can we use entanglement for instantaneous communication across vast dist...
