I wanted to adress this part of Jose's tirade only because this sort of thing repeatedly comes up.If God exists, then God rules the heavens, and Satan rules the earth. Terror. We’re born of evil. As little kids what’s the word we always hear? No. We always hear no. “No, don’t do that. Don’t do this. No. No. No. Don’t.” This is because most of the human species is evil. We’re born of Satan, of Earth. Some get it a lot quicker. Some don’t get it at all: namely, those who commit crimes, murderers, and rapists. They do not get anything, and yet these are the people who will never convert. Darkness reigns.
Please allow me to quite pointedly disagree. Mankind is not born of evil. Instead, they are not born with adult brains.
How this leads to man being inherently evil is something of a puzzle. It's as if to say that "good" is not a natural state of man.
We are not alone in the animal world with regards to teaching our young. As a matter of fact, several species of birds need to teach thier young how to fly. Can anyone seriously suggest that fact leads us to conclude that flying is not a natural state for birds?
This is one of those old and tired tropes which needs to go away. It's plainly silly, and anyone who gives it a moment's thought can see that to be the case.
