Fuck this shit. I'm coming out of the closet.I'm coming out as a conservative. I realized that liberals and left wingers are nothing but lazy hippies who do not contribute shit. My favorite President is Ronald Reagan and this is in response to Jonathan Krohn coming out as liberal http://www.bing.com/search?q=Jonathan+Krohn+turned+Liberal&go=&qs=n&form=QBRE&pq=jonathan+krohn+turned+liberal&sc=3-16&sp=-1&sk=. Well I can change my mind too and I decided that you guys should get your own healthcare, companies should self regulate, and I support the war in Afghanistan. I am not voting for Mitt Romney but I will vote for Virgil Goode http://www.bing.com/search?q=Virgil+Goode&go=&qs=n&form=QBRE&pq=virgil+goode&sc=8-12&sp=-1&sk= of the Constitution party http://www.constitutionparty.com/ who is a true conservative who can return us to our biblical roots.

Premise 1: God is omnipotent, and is therefore able to prevent evil from existing without any effort.
Premise 2: God is omniscient, and therefor knows that evil exists and how to prevent it.
Premise 3: God is omnibenevolent, so he wouldn't allow his creations to suffer pointlessly, more than others, or at all.
Premise 4: God exists.

Every day, millions of people are suffering from diseases, injuries, starvation, acts of violence and so on. Since the conclusion follows logically from the premises, but does not fit with the reality, one of the premises must be false. We can draw 4 possible conclusions from this:
1. God can't prevent evil, and is there
