We cannot feel exactly the same on all of our subjects; therefore, in the process of being human, we are forced to work together, to mold our ideas together, and bring the best from all of our ideas, not just a single one. Humans all take things for granted and want to take the best that we as a race can make it, perfect. Perfection does not exist in this country, or even on Earth itself. Everything, living or not, has flaws, no matter how deeply buried, but not a utopia, nor perfection itself. A utopia simply cannot exist because it is perfect, and our planet, our world, our universe, is not.
Utopia is imaginary, and is said to be a perfect place, but there is no shared idea of perfection, so society keeps striving for a utopian society that isn’t achievable, and as a society we are lazy. Some people describe utopia as a real, achievable place or mindset, and I disagree with that. Utopia is completely imaginary. There is no perfect world in which everybody thinks or feels the same way about everything, because everyone is strongly opinionated when it comes to certain subjects, and people agree and disagree on everything. There are 2. no two people in the world that agree on every single thing.
Namely, what follows from this argument is that humans in reality are not free because every action that they will is necessary, thus already pre-determined by God. What Augustine does not realize is that his argument actually proves that humans have no knowledge of being determined—but they are determined! Therefore, as I shall point out, God could have created a determined world, without evil, where beings act freely not knowing that they in fact are determined. I would like now to turn to my first ch... ... middle of paper ... ...y in question is able to do anything that it chooses to do. The second point is that the idea that God cannot create a world with free beings that never choose to do evil is contradictory if we consider the existence of Heaven, which allegedly is an evil-free place where beings are free to exercise their will and apparently never choose to do evil.
Love from God cannot be expressed by the death of people, that is not right. People dying of natural diseases that cannot be helped and going to heaven is not as sinful as people dying for no apparent reason and going to heaven. ‘Gods gift of free will is in no way an excuse for the existence of evil’ If God knows the consequences of the humans that he had created then why give them the choice of free will. Humans are like robots, their actions can already be concluded before even having chosen them yet. Therefore God would have known what the consequences of evil and suffering could be.
If we reach our definition of perfection only to find out it falls short of someone else’s, then have we failed? It is easy to create such a world in fiction, yet not achievable in reality. We as humans will never live in a society where perfection exists; someone will find a way to go against the system. Our way of living is to try our best to overcome each imperfection, but we cannot get rid of it completely. I believe God made us this way so that we would remember there is a power greater than us.
The arguments stated above prove that God is not all-powerful, all-knowing and all-good. If he is, then the world will be a perfect place without the existence of evil. But we all know accidents, disasters, murders, sufferings and many other evil things do happen, we can conclude that there is no perfect world and God is not all-knowing, all-powerful and all-good. From all of the examples that I mentioned above, it is evident that evil do exists side-by-side God, this means that God is not able to rule evil. Thus, God is only all-good.
Man may have as many ideas and plans as he wants but if these are not God's plans then they will fail. A society like the one Huxley presents could never be possible because it is a civilization that is completely dependent on man and controlled by man. Man has no power over things like life and death. Those things only belong in the power of God and can only be controlled by God. Because Huxley tries to create a world without God, it is a world that would fail.
Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobodt was stronger or quicker than anybody else." Yet this equality is not natural, "all this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution" and "the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General." Doesn"t this mean that equality is not natural?
In “Harrison Bergeron”, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. uses irony to express that complete and total equality in everything, both mental and physical, will effectively destroy any possibility of development in a society. If every person shares the same amount of intelligence nothing will be successfully achieved. Because no ones thought process can be greater than that of the least intelligent’s there can no longer be innovative solutions to problems. When the citizens no longer hold the capacity for meaningful conversation the society loses its cohesiveness. Vonnegut writes, “‘Reckon it’d fall all apart,’ said Hazel.
Because God is omnipotent, he can do all that is logically possible. Forced love is logically impossible therefore; God cannot create humans without freewill. As a consequence evil exists. God could not have created a world in which we have no choice but to love. In order to have love we there... ... middle of paper ... ...by stating that objective moral values do not exist.
