Very well written and very informative. This is getting to the meat of the "good without God" topic. Let me ask you some questions :
1. You make references to the bibles 10 commandments. Most notably "thou shall not kill." Do you think that the bible, with that commandment, is the
reason why ppl that have not killed yet are not killing ppl now?
2. What was going on in the millions and even billions of years before this book was written? How were early humans and pre-humans getting on without
divine command not to kill?
3. Did God sit back with indifference to the cruelty and extinction and death of the evolutionary process for all those billions of years just to
interject say about 2-3000 years ago and give us a book that claims "we were the apple of his eye" the whole time? If so, can you describe what is
REALLY the definition of good?
4. What is the definition of evil?
5. If good is subject and can be measured as the great moral barometer "God," then it would appear that evil is on the opposite side of good.
Something which an all powerful God should be aware of. So tell me then, why is it that to be good, it seems that God is the ticket. But when in the
case of evil, its purely human? Was God not aware of his own barometric status to which only believers in him can attain goodness?
6. The problem of evil is not one that has been solved yet, in my opinion. What can you offer other than to claim we were born sick and commanded to
be well again?
