Josephine asked:

You've answered my first question. It seemed that you won that one, or did you? Now, please tell me, why did old literature (holy scriptures, etc) say that the ways to defeat the "evil forces" were to cast spells, pray, die on the cross, declare wars against them, cast them to hell, and not simply to use your way (the simple "let's defeat death and dearth" thing)?

Andreas Laurencius Yes Josephine, there is no punishment for 'evil' things, there are only events that can be explained by the deterministic and probabilistic causation theories.

This time, I will not answer this question :). I will let other readers answer it.
Josephine There must be something wrong, either with your book, or with these scriptures. The only thing standing between you and the barbaric, monstrous satanic human-sacrificial ritual, the terrifying supernatural phenomena, and centuries of fighting evil (like Hitler) is your book. You're also implying that there is no punishment for these evil things because there is no good and evil? Well, I know that you're gonna defend your work. You will mess with the Pope, Andreas, you will mess with a lot of priests and academics.
