What is unnatural is evil in monotheism?
Debate Rounds (4)
I'll start off with this:
Pro is stating that anything, if unnatural, is evil.
He is generalizing the term evil, since there are many degrees of evil, like bullying vs genocide, but most importantly, Pro fails to give a definition for unnatural, and evil as well. I cannot argue anything if we both have conflicting views on what the terms mean.
Apologies If I'm making assumptions, but you seem to be indirectly justifying the Holocaust, but that may not be true, and it's off topic.
The idea of monotheism comes into play when added to your logic, since all things evil got to Hell. So, Pro, shall we be expecting physically, and mentally challenged people in Hell? That is wrong. Just because they aren't, "natural" (here meaning what a human should be), doesn't mean they're evil.
Moving on, let's create a scenario.
You are in a classroom of people you like, and hate.
One person (a person you hate) come up to you, and insults you, hits you, etc.
The natural reaction for you is to retaliate, but you have to be the better person.
There's an error in your reasoning though, since you just resisted a natural inclination, therefore you reacted unnaturally, so you committed an evil action.
The natural inclination was to retaliate, but most would agree that retaliation is not a good action, therefore a bad one.
Why shouldn't I bring human instincts in this? Instincts are natural, and the whole argument is about whether or not natural means good, and unnatural things mean evil.
By saying that God had intended something to be right, but saying that his creations are imperfect, shows a lack of power, and forethought.
God knew humans would fall.
God had the power to stop them from falling.
God gave them Free Will anyways, and let them fall.
Humans are evil, and have, "a corrupted nature", as Pro stated.
This makes no sense, at least to someone who believes in no divinity.
Thank you for the debate.
