Well god created everything right? That means he created Lucifer. Therefore Lucifer (and all evil really) is just another expression of God. Lucifer s reason for hating "God's Creations" is really a way for God to punish his own creations to serve whatever perfect end such agony accomplishes in his all knowing mind. As human we will never understand, all we can do is submit to his will and accept the trials we face as necessary for the creation of the best possible world.

Satan is just as trapped in Hell as the rest of the people in the 9th circle. Inferno tends to present him as a mindless, enraged yet trapped beast, the complete opposite of God who is omnipotent, omniscient, and completely free. Try not to forget this is a poem and not actual theology.

>>274008018
Good question, I'll reply with a very common answer. Good and evil are created when we as humans place value on things created by god. We over step our bounds if we claim that any act is good or evil, as the divine plan simply sees everything as directed by God Will. You who cannot hope to understand his will should, therefore, submit to it. That's when religion starts popping up, men take the place of God and ask you to bow to their rules (of good and evil) instead of accepting that morals are simply relative.
>>
>>274008018
Furthermore, if God is omnipotent and all powerful, why would he allow one of his favorite angel dudes to go to the dark side? And lose thousands of souls to said dark side?

Why does religion portray God as so incompetent at his only job? I like to think God's a little better than that.

Exactly, we must accept that God planned for Satan's departure and therefore that the creation of what we see as "evil" is simply another extension of Gods will. We are left at a moral impasse if we are led to believe God's existence as an absolute perfect being, and admitting imperfection destroys the credibility god carries. This means that any religious believer has simply been tricked into following very much human ideas of right and wrong. There is nothing wrong with believing in God, there is something wrong in believing you can understand God however, especially to a degree in which you accurately interpret him.

Milton fans like me more than likely carry immense egos and consider Pride to not be as much of a sin as it is a strength, a measurement of self-worth and actualization in the face of a collectivist ideology.

The Divine Comedy Fans tend to be the opposite, believing in social collectivism and the importance of humility for a more utilitarian society.

>phl 101 plebs haven't even solved the problem of evil yet.

There are three tenants
>Evil Exists
>God is all powerful
>God wants to stop evil

These three facts contradict each other. If for a moment we accept that God uses the rules of logic (he doesn't necessarily have to, he is not bound by anything even logic) then one of these three must be false.

It is possible Evil doesn't exist, and that God considers the sin of the world something that is ultimately good.
Alternatively it is possible God doesn't have infinite power, he can't see the future, he can't take away free will, ect.
Finally we must accept it possible that God chooses not to. Either he is apathetic, or he in some way has decided that the "best possible universe" is one with evil, not one without. Either he doesn't want you to lose free will, because it makes your successes and acts of devotion that much greater, or he in some other way views a world without evil to be shallow or wrong.

I think if the pride is a biased egoism that ignores the importance of your place in the universe it is "sinful" pride. Being aware of your abilities and having an understanding of yourself in a fair and honest way, and being happy that you are you is the unsinful form of pride.

Limbo doesn't sound like hell at all, it sounds pretty awesome actually. You can meet a bunch of cool people.

>The castle is the dwelling place of the wisest men of antiquity, including Virgil himself, as well as the Persian polymath Avicenna. In the castle Dante meets the poets Homer, Horace, Ovid, and Lucan; the Amazon queen Penthesilea; the mathematician Euclid; the scientist Pedanius Dioscorides; the statesman Cicero; the first doctor Hippocrates; the philosophers Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Averroes; the historical figures Lucretia, Lucius Junius Brutus, and Julius Caesar in his role as Roman general ("in his armor, falcon-eyed");[7] mythological characters Hector, Electra, Camilla, Latinus, and Orpheus; and many others. Interestingly, he also sees Saladin in Limbo (Canto IV).

The problem of evil seems to be solved by simply saying evil doesn't exist or that god is not all powerful. I have trouble with both of those but find it easier to take a Spinozistic approach and claim that evil doesn't exist. there you are trying to understand Gods will at the end of your post even after saying God doesn't need to use rules of logic. Either way the problem of evil is far from solved (instead pushed aside) and relies very heavily on the existence of God which itself can be debated. There is evil in the world is there not? When a jew company rips you off on your next game purchase? When Hitler decimated the population of Europe during the holocaust? When someone attacks someone you love and causes them undeserved harm? Are these things not evil?

Sort of this.

Basically what's happening in Dante's depiction of Inferno is that a person's soul is being tortured; Dante's description is nothing like what it's actually like since human language is unable to accurately describe what's going on in any of these realms. He just uses words to convey the closest thing he can think of that humans would understand.

However after the Day of Judgement, there will be a 'resurrection of the body', when the bodies (in perfect wholeness, not rotted away) of all who died throughout history will be reunited with their souls. Then everyone will be judged again in front of God, and those cast back to Hell will experience even more torment since they have their body back; it will be both a physical and spiritual torment.

At least that's what I remember from the last time I studied the poem.

Moral Relativity then is where you draw your line. I'm personally really trying to avoid that stance because it leads to a lot of conflict with systems of order based on value but I have trouble myself. I can't offer you more in terms of argument, but maybe if we look at how we develop our concepts of evil. Are we born knowing that some things are good and some things are bad? What or who teaches us these concepts then, is pain simply the driving force of all human development. Maybe the avoidance of pain is a better way to think of it. Either way you're very pessimistic and I like it, very "/v/" of you.

Hell isn't Lucifer's domain in the bible and actual religion as it's depicted in most other portrayals. Hell's a prison the unrighteous and sinners are condemned to, including Lucifer. One interpretation is the torment galvanizes you toward realizing you were wrong and repenting, or getting you stuck in self-pity, in which case you don't deserve to be saved.

Nothing is objective. Evil is what you deem to be evil.

Human life is a complex interaction among thousands, if not millions, of other humans. If you try to reduce it down to some simplistic statement like "we are born knowing evil" then you miss the point.

Humanity is like a computer where every single individual transistor gets to choose it's own state based on how it feels that day. Imagine how phenomenally difficult it would be to create a program for that computer.

Such a program could not exist within the bounds of logic.

if we are taking God out of the arguement, one could say that even acts like that arent inherently evil. Rather, they have consequences that certain parties find less than desirable. The being that took action in order to bring out those consequences may have fully believed that they were justified and good for oding what they were doing. Also, they may have believed that any evil and misfortune wrought from their actions would be negligible compared to the results they would experience and were looking for. barely passed one college philosophy class

You're just moving the goalposts, defining God's power so that they can fit with your arguments. Greek Mythology is a different story, they had a different belief and thought that their Gods weren't the strongest things. Instead, they believed in some kind of cosmic force which controlled the gods.

>>274012383

Sort of missing the point.

All humans sin. Sin is an affront against God. God is perfectly just, so must punish sin. However since God is also a cool guy, he decided to give humanity a chance for redemption by sending Jesus to take the sins of humanity upon himself and taking the punishment for all of that, which has to be doled out by God, since that's the concept of justice, punishment = crime.

By transferring the sins of humanity onto Jesus, humanity is no longer tainted by sin. There's been a transfer of sin from humans to Jesus. As a result, Christians (since according to this theology, Jesus is the only way to get to God) are able to get this eternal reward because they aren't burdened by sin.

But if he really is omnipotent, all of this is unnecessary. He could literally change the way sin works or erase it completely.

The fact that he doesn't means that he wants to test us, but such testing is also useless, as god is supposedly omniscient and would know if we fail or pass even before we were born.

So it all comes down to a god that wants us to purge ourselves of sin that he allowed and allows us to be tainted with, all the while knowing whether any one of us is successful or not. He is like a kid with an ant farm.

The point of the sacrifice was, that Jesus gets sent to hell, battles his way through it, makes Lucifer a little bitch and opens a portal to the purgatory/heaven.

The sole reason of his sacrifice was, so people who die after him can get into heaven.
>>
>>274013020

It doesn't get rid of sin. Sin is always going to exist until the day of the Last Judgement.

What the sacrifice of Jesus does within Christian theology is allow for a way for the Divine Punishment that humans deserve for sinning to be applied to Jesus instead. This way, God remains Just, since sin (which is the bad thing, not humans) has been punished.

It's sort of a one-off payment. In dying for humanity, Jesus took on all the sin that will ever be committed and took the punishment for it

That would be ruling through fear. If the fear of punishment is the only reason you do not commit crimes, you are still a criminal at heart.

>>
>>274013341
When Jesus was sacrificed it made it so that the burden of sin was taken from us to Jesus. So long as you accept Jesus you won't receive the truly deserved punishment for your actions because Jesus was already sacrificed for it. This is God's grace and mercy.

I think the sacrifice of Jesus makes it so that humanity is 'neutral' with God, instead of being at -100 relations due to a 'Sin' modifier.

Neutral isn't enough to get into heaven though, and since you've only got Heaven or Hell, which is why you've got to accept Jesus as lord and saviour and all the rest of it.

>>274014489
I don't subscribe to the christian faith myself, but the implication is that changing humans would be meddling with free will that God also gave humans.

If you ask me, it's a vicious circle where a god who could easily end all human suffering doesn't do it out of pride and then punishes people for succumbing to something he made them susceptible to.

No matter how you look at that, God comes off as being malicious.
>>
>>274014669
One branch of Christianity has that and its canoninity is disputed at best.

Saying purgatory is real in Christian theology is like saying hell is exactly like the Inferno.
>>
>>274014489

>I mean fuck, why in the actual fuck would he make it so that people can sin and them blame them for it. It's their nature.

It wasn't part of their nature though. Milton sums it up in Paradise Lost as 'Sufficient to have stood, though free to fall' (although that applies more to Adam and Eve who fucked it up for everyone else really).

God could have just destroyed Adam and Eve when they fucked up, but instead decided that it would be more fun to prove how great he was by letting sin fuck them over for a while before sending Jesus along to save humanity from Hell as a default final destination.

There's one thing that never made sense to me.

God made humans in his image, but how does that work with evolution? Evolution is accepted by pretty much all but the most hardcore fundamentalists at this point so there has to be an explanation.

We started as a single celled organism, does that mean God is a single celled organism himself? Have we grown more advanced than God?
>>
>>274014926
Yes. Sin was not originally in humanity, but through the fall of Adam in the Garden we now "all have sin and fall short of the Glory of God."

Why is heresy considered worse than heathenry? With heresy someone at least has the right idea, just not in the right way, so it never made sense that heathenry is a bigger sin.
>>
>>274014669

Depends which branch of Christianity you adhere to as to whether you believe in Purgatory.

In any case, it isn't a place for neutrals though, it's a place for sinners who didn't sin enough to warrant a place in Hell. They spend their time purifying themselves from 'lesser' sins until they're pure enough for heaven.

To be honest, there's not really such a thing as 'neutral' when it comes to Christianity though

>I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
>So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth

If you're abivalent towards Jesus and Christianity, you're screwed as well. Pretty much 'With us or against us' it appears

>>274015289

Wait, isn't it the other way around?
>>
>>274015178
Yes, and the only way for him to forgive you is to torture his own son who is also himself.
>>
>>274015262

That would mean our entire evolution path was predetermined. We were created in his image like babies are created in their parent's image.
>>
>>274015178
Yes and yes. Humanity is suffering because Adam was successfully tempted by Eve and Satan and committed the Original Sin. And I quoted Romans 3:23.

But I should say that most people don't take the Adam and Eve story literally anymore.
>>
>>274015336
that black and white morality has no logic.
>>
>>274015438
Which would also mean that we are on our way to becoming the god of the next cycle.

So this is absolute truth and can be proven?

Or do you just think this?
>>
>>274015336

ambiavalent*

>>274015178

That's 'original sin', which everyone inherited from the sin of Adam and Eve. That's the reason why everyone (without repentance and Jesus) is going to Hell. Jesus allows that sin to be cancelled out, resetting a person to a 'neutral' state with God. Every other sin is something humans commit of their own volition.
>>
>>274015481
God isn't interested in good people, he's interested in people that will spend the rest of eternity telling him how great he is.
>>
>>274015660
Of course it can't be proven. I don't even think that. I'm just explaining a basic tennent of Christianity.

Sort of related, but I was looking through some old Indian religious texts the other day and those fuckers predicted a lot of shit science was only able to confirm recently, almost to a scary degree.

They fairly accurately described things like the age and size of the universe, the big bang, evolution and a bunch of other stuff. It's always cool, and really weird, to find these ancient predictions that turned out to be true.

Since we are talking about the afterlife, I had a dream a couple nights ago.

In the dream, I awoke to find myself in a toy store. For some reason I knew I was dead or had just died and as a result I ended up in the toy store. This place looked awesome. There was all kinds of cool shit. Video games, model spaceships, nerf guns, RC cars, chemistry sets, and so on.
I came upon the front desk and there was a man. This guy looked awful. His hair was grey, his skin pale and clammy and his eyes lacked color and had bags underneath. He just looked horribly sick. I asked him, "How long have you been here?"
He moaned and said in a weak voice, "1000 years."
I asked him "What is this place?" except he didnt say anything. All he did was just stand there. So I left him alone.
At the back of the store was a man standing in front of a door. As I approached the door I could see a flickering light from behind the door as well as faint noise coming from behind. I said to the man,
"You must be the Guardian" To which he replied "That's correct."
"Then you must be Uriel!" I said.
This statement caused him to smile and chuckle
"How do I figure out where I am?" I asked.
"If you look hard enough, this place will tell you." He replied.
So I began to look around the toy store at the various items and toys for clues on where I was. It was then I came upon a pillow. I picked up the pillow. It was purple with and made with fake velvet. I put the pillow next to my ear and listened.

and it said

Purgatory.

Well there's a bunch of shit, They accurately predicted the age of Earth to be around 4.5 billion years. They also described a cycle of life, in which every so often a mass extinction takes place to make place for new organisms, which later turned out to be true. Then there's the Dashavatara thing which resembles evolution since it accurately goes from fish, to reptile, to mammal and so on.

A lot of it is obviously coincidence, but it's still cool to see these resemblances.

I'm fairly certain the big guy that's sticking the glass in the armless guy is Abaddon.

>>274022716
theres no way it wouldn't be super edgy but I like the concept for a story, with satan as a sympathetic protagonist that isn't taken to be wholly good or bad, just a man who escaped imprisonment and paid the price for his freedom

So what's with the resurrection of Jesus? Things like turning water into wine can be explained, 'miracles' weren't exactly uncommon at the time, but what basis in history does his resurrection have? Was he buried alive? Did people just claim to have seem him?

I'd go to a /theo/ board just for the gets, which would be the had in the name of Zeus, making Christfags asspained as fuck

Yeah, but how valid was that? I mean who wouldn't want to be known as the guy who saw Jesus rise from his grace.

A theology board would be terrible, it would be /x/2.0 with constant shitposting

Mass halucinations aren't that common and people believed enough to die over a lie?

If there are any actual Christfags I'm sure it'd be pretty hard to actually make them upset.

It's fucked up that you yelling at him to kill himself only gets you into the fifth circle but if he were actually to do it he'd end up in the seventh

>>274011216
sure ithe universe could be deterministic to 3d beings. the illusion is that you have a choice.

i'm not saying it is or isn't.. but i'm inclined to think the only freedom we have it the freedom to react to circumstances in our bodies and minds.

The first circle of Hell doesn't sound bad. Not bad at all actually. Even if it's just pure fucking barren grey lands as far as the eye can see, it's still pretty neat. 7/10 I'd spend my after-life there.

Limbo isn't technically hell. I think it's more like a discount version of heaven.

If you're a gentleman and a sholar, you get to chill with Virgil and the gang in their ballin castle on a meadow that is lit up by the sheer power of their intellect. 10/10 would totally spend my afterlife there.
>>
>>274012018
if you see yourself as a divine being, or as a part of the unity of god, then it's putting out a light that could do good.

but i don't believe in such a literal hell anyway. if there is a realm of tourture, it's all ehoes and past tendencies in mental realm of your own mind. you have to get things your stuck on before moving forward spiritually

Can't be, because people die.

Maybe they are just moving on to heaven or hell and only appear to be simply dying.

but the emotional damage caused is to an ego, which is an entity which can't know god. only your unfiltered consciousness can know pure love.

Buddism has kinda something relatable in a way that you have infinite amount of tries to actually break out of the wheel of Samsara and achieven nirvana.
But on the other side it's not an monotheistic religion.

I like how in most games not from the US angels, gods and other spiritual forces are shown to be the villain or monsters. Angels in Bayo, SMT and most of games I can think of are actually more or less monsters compared to their devil counterparts. Angels as spheres with rings are best angels.
