contradictions between Fate and free will
Why God doesn't intervene to save crack babies
Who created God?

Anything of that sort.

Just to start things off, there was a thread which said "why doesn't God intervene to save dead babies." Since the answer involves a long series of questions, I decided to start a thread for anyone who would like to hear the "Roman Philosopher" answer to this question, specifically the Platonic philosophers such as Boethius.

So, as for the question of God's intervention, it is generally answered with reference to free will, so that human beings who have free will have the responsibility and commitment to their own works, which is why if a baby is born with some deformity, and that deformity is caused by man made chemicals, then it is not considered part of God's plan.

Many of the points raised about this question involve technology, which is man made and thus outside of God's care. The chemical or physical processes are manipulated by mankind enough to cause unintended results. Or intended results in the case of weapons and bombs. By asking God to intervene and stop all bombs from exploding is asking God to contradict the laws of physics.

So, because man has free will, there is a responsibility man gives to himself that can not be intervened by God.
