If the gods have the will to remove evil and cannot, then they are not all-powerful. If they are neither able nor willing, they are neither all-powerful or benevolent. If they are both able and willing to annihilate evil, why does it exist?

Epicurus, C300 BCE

“When she returned to the Philippines after exile in Hawaii, she was received by people whop kiss her hands for blessing and by a priest who proclaims the return of “Mummy Imelda”.

Instead of selling her shoes for charity she gives the poor… blessings. An ingenious invention these blessings are: it looks like you are giving something while giving nothing…

Alexander asked the fellow [a captured pirate], “What is your idea in infesting the sea?” And the pirate answered, with uninhibited insolence, “The same as yours, in infesting the earth!
