Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    God's choice from the start was to give his creation "man" free volition.... Man, being a finite creature made the wrong choice and to straighten things out God sent his son to pay for that sin and straighten it all out. Still it's still FREE Volition and individuals have to choose.
    will you spend etrnity with God or burn in Hell with Satan and his Demons cut off from th love of God forever

    Do you want a world where nothing bad ever happens to anybody?
    Gee, that sounds great.
    Do you want the hand of God to come down and save you from evil? Heaven on earth?
    You would sacrifice your ability to chose your own path in life.

    You dare to question God? Haha According to most Christian beliefs, God gave man free will. He told them what he didn't want them to do and the punishment for not following his laws and not repenting if you did was to not be allowed into the kindom of heaven.

    It's not what God is or isn't,it's people not being responsible for their actions and wanting to blame it on something else.
    Like..i don't know....biting into a apple maybe..

    Who has established that the human sense of "able" and "willing" are proper metrics for God? That person has never been and never will be born.

    You know, that's a good question. Since both good and evil exist, I thought that God would actually be both since I see it as Yin and Yang in a way
    However, the other parts of your question can't really be answered since scientifically, it appear that there are none, but for those who have believe in God or Gods, science might not be important to substantiate their beliefs.
