Dostoyevsky Encore!

Another quote he said, "If there is no immorality, there can be no virtue." In essence, that is the pithy version of my lengthy arguments against the attribution of "perfectly moral" to the concept of "God". If God cannot have any possibility to be immoral, then there can also never be any possibility for his actions to be virtuous. At best, they can only be characterized as instinctual. But ofcourse, that whole idea is racked with contradictions!

i see your point and i don't know how to resolve it,
but it doesn't worry me..

there are always debates/disagreements/further clarifications to be made when it comes to "defining GOd"

your dispute is with the definition, it seems, not with God Himself... maybe, but what do i know
