    There is no justification, but is an action of a fee will of a selfish man , who does not have a fear to God.

    So why did God choose a creaton plan which guranteed that children woud be raped.???

    A combination of ther genes an environment... both of which God created.!!!

    Just like everbody else... nuthin good enuff to make it go away or keep it from happenin agan to other children.!!!

    Which creation plan woud you rather that God had chosen... the one we have now which includes child rape... or one in which humans had the character to never choose to rape a child.???

    Stop blaming God, we develop a character through our life . If we don't have fear of God , we feed our selfish desire and that will be our character or habit .

    Can you clarify what is relevant to our discussion about a Clockwork God?

    You speak for yourself. Are you unable to control your selfish desires without fear of reprisal by some cosmic parent-figure?

    Cuz the rest of us have internalized the motivation to be a good person of good character.

    Sure.
    Every day God tells me I have absolute dominion over forum users with doggies for avatars.
    I guess that makes it true.

    Maybe the best God has to offer is inside you.

    Bowser:

    I'd need more context to tell you what I think about that.

    For the first part: On the one hand, it could be saying that if you understand your own motivations, you'll understand why you might want to invent a God fantasy. On the other hand, it could be saying that if you search deeply inside yourself you'll somehow find evidence of an external God.

    And the second part: if God is a human creation, clearly God can't exist without human beings. On the other hand, if it is saying that God is objectively real, then it looks like it's making a claim that God had no choice but to invent human beings, which seems a bit odd for an omnipotent being. Alternatively, maybe it's claiming that the most significant part of a human being - the person part - is really God (or part of God), rather than being a self-contained manifestation of the physical body/brain etc.

    This is off-topic for this thread but, briefly, can you explain your theory on how you manage to interface with your body, if the "you" is some kind of supernatural, non-physical being. Is it a kind of soul magic? Or does God make the magic happen? Is that what God does?

    How does it make sense? If God is at the core, how can it be you? Are you saying God is everybody? Are you just a fragment of God, or an independent entity? How does it work, in your opinion?

    What in particular needs managing, by God, on a day-to-day basis?

    So God's job is to take the long view and guide evolution towards the particular goal of making a duplicate of himself?

    Do you think God is done with humans, or is he still working on "improving" the species?

    How does God manage the environment to achieve his evolutionary aims? What levers does he tweak? Cell division? The weather? DNA mutations? And is this something that takes a lot of his time and effort, or is it more of an occasional tweak here and there?

    Why couldn't he have set the whole long-term plan in motion at the start, so he could then sit back and just watch it all unfold? Why is his ongoing management necessary?

    So God spends his time guiding man? What does he do in that regard, exactly? How does the guiding happen, on a day-to-day basis? Or is that also only an occasional thing?

    We are all individuals but collectively as a group .The blessing or cursing is giving to a group, but there are also special cases, those who invoke Him in obedience.
