Interesting CQOD today

I really enjoy the website, by the way, if you aren’t a daily reader I recommend becoming one. Today’s quotation,

If God made a world without suffering, it would be a world in which humans had little responsibility for each other and for other creatures. Seeing that that alternative is not obviously better than the present world led me to see something about goodness—that there is more to it than tingles of pleasure—and about God—that his goodness is shown in the freedom and responsibility he gives to his creatures. ~Richard Swinburne

Interesting thought, although I’m not sure I agree with it. I think I will see if I can find the book containing the whole essay at a local library, though. (Ah! Another book to read! Make it stop!)

PS – one benefit to working at a different academic institution than your wife? More library cards!
