Why does a God allow all this to happen in the world?

If God is all loving, all knowing and all caring why does he allow the following to happen in the world?

  1. Why does he allow sexual slavery to exist?
  2. Why does he allow the child prostitution?
  3. Why did he allow shaheen(5 year old girl) to be raped many times till her intestines came out and she needed stiches for that too heal?
  4. Why does he allow women to be raped all over the world? Why does he allow women to sexually assualted every two minutes in US?
  5. Why does he allow millions of people to get addicted to drugs?
  6. Why does he allow millions of people to get addicted to alcohol?
  7. Why does he allow millions of people to get addicted to gambling?
  8. Why does he allow human trafficking to exist?
  9. Why does let 850 million people worldwide were undernourished in 1999 to 2005?
  10. Why does he let so many animals and plants go extinct?
  11. Why does he allow people kill each other in the name of god?
  12. Why does he allow the so many billions of people live in poverty?
  13. Why does he allow kids become suicide bombers?

"God works in mysterious ways" and "We humans cannot expect to understand God's divine plan" and "God is just testing our faith" and "suffering makes us stronger in the long run".  The mental gymnastics that theists  go through to justify their worldview must be exhausting.

This is called Theodicy and there is no one size fits all answer theists will fall back on. Free will is common, but arguments that evil is necessary for spiritual growth, that evil is complimentary to good and that evil is the consequence of sin are all fairly common as well.

You can't have good without evil and you can't have evil without good. This because the fairy wants to test your faith and for that purpose put dinosaur fossils in place as a test. The god also tests in other ways, like collapsing the Christchurch Cathedral on 22 of his "creations" last month. gods message is meant to be hard to understand so people will give up and just follow what they're told to follow by their preacher pastor personage. Don't think! Do..

"As far as im concerned, evolution proves that a personal God does not exist."

1) Evolution is a lie created by Big Science™ to push their satanic godless worldview on impressionable Christian children.


2) God gave man dominion over the animals.  God is personal, but only with us humans.  All of creation exists so that we can come into communion with the Lord our God.  In this light, one can see how insignificant it is that some lower forms of life may have died off from the time the Earth was created 6,000 years ago.

lmao Rich about the dog. We have a chihuahua and he literally is a mean son of a bitch.

I starting getting a better grasp on reality when I quit trying to explain events in life via "Mean SOB in the Sky" who ain't there. Life happens.

I once heard a preacher say something along the lines of this " Good things and bad things happen... If it's good, it's God, If it's bad it's the Devil....."  Your list is just a list of things that God let the Devil slip by and get away with I suppose... haha silly theists.

You must always remember that 'The Lord moves in mysterious ways, his blunders to perform'.

Apple, Apple, Apple.  As the existense of a god is personally offensive to me, your little speil moves me not.  I find that even the heartfelt plea leaves me cold.  It's nonsense.  It has always been nonsense.

I wrote this article almost all the good in the world is attributed to god which i find very misleading so got my thoughts out there. I did not make any random claims almost all have references...

If he existed, he'd be the world's biggest prick.
