Ocean - The Almightiness Contradiction Lyrics

  • "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?"
  • [Epicurus]
  • "If God is omniscient, he must already know how he is going to intervene to change the course of history using his omnipotence.
  • But that means he can't change his mind about his intervention which means he is not omnipotent"
  • [Richard Dawkins]
  • If He knew it all
  • If He knew everything there is to be known
  • Then that would mean that He would always know what to do next to change the course of history
  • He could choose to suspend the laws of nature
  • He would always know the past and the future
  • But this would make his own knowledge untrue
  • For if He knew everything
  • He could not do anything different from what he knows
  • And even if he could hear our prayers
  • He could not encroach
  • There's noone here who knows it all
  • There's nothing there beyond the world we know
  • There's noone here who knows it all
  • Is there something there beyond the world we know?
  • Christian morality has all the characters of a reaction; it is, in great part, a protest against Paganism.
  • It's ideal is negative rather than positive; passive rather than action; innocence rather than Nobleness;
  • Abstinence from Evil, rather than energetic Pursuit of Good: in it's precepts (as has been well said) "thou shalt not" predominates unduly over "thou shalt."
  • [John Stuart Mill]
