Mill would say that if God is omniscient then surely he is aware of our suffering and would therefore intervene in the evil as he loves us all. Yet God still allows our suffering to continue which suggests that God is not powerful (omnipotent) at all and cannot stop us or save us from this evil. Mill also believes that the natural disasters and natural problems within the human body such as curable or incurable cancers and diseases such as motor-neurone disease (causes of the body to shut down slowly) for example show faults in the design. These disaster show poor design but how can an all knowing
From this we are encouraged to look outside the edge of mainstream society and see a wider humanity, rather then the dominant class. We are also told about his clean well manicured hands and conservative sharp suits. From this infomation we are able to see that he can infact afford the book, yet for some reason chooses not to purchase it. At this point Winton is encouraging the reader to look deeper into the story and get a feel for the characters surroundings. It then becomes easy for the reader to understand why the unnamed man chooses to read in the store, because despite all Fat Maz's soul searching and her father's bad temper, the newsagency is actually a very place with a homey feel.
Sin is a crime caused by wanting joy but Chillingworth is not like that. His actions are purely evil which is true sin. “ At first, his expression had been calm, meditative, scholar-like. Now, there was something ugly and evil in his face...” (Hawthorne 120.) “ Old Roger Chillingworth, throughout his life, he had been calm in temperament , kindly, though not of warm affections...but, as he proceeded, a terrible fascination, a kind of fierce...” ( Hawthorne 123.)
Dimmesdale is now “considered by his more fervent admirers as a little less than a heaven-oriented apostle” (109). It saddens Dimmesdale that people are losing faith in him, because of the transformation of becoming torpid towards his profession as a reverend. As Dimmesdale felt worse about himself, the townspeople thought that “if Mr. Dimmesdale were to die, it was cause, that the world [is] not worthy to be any longer trodden by his feet” (109). The townspeople still thinks highly of Reverend Dimmesdale and they all knew that if he were to die, there would be no hesitation of him going to
He recalls that “we don’t have to say anything, that’s how it is between people who are each others’ first memories.” He has not been willing to give Hassan the loyalty he deserves and is involuntarily using this memory to fill the void that his lack of allegiance has left. This idea generates a level of equality between Hassan and himself that is not there in actuality. Consequently, Amir becomes conscious that Hassan truly is his best memory, romanticized or not. The Hazara boy, though still a paradox, is now understood as a defining person in his life. Whether Amir is reminiscing about a missed childhood or lamenting the awful treatment of his brother, he will be constantly affected by him throughout the novel.
This trait of disbelief in Seward becomes the reason that Seward is unable to diagnose what Lucy has, eventually leading to a scolding by his former teacher, Dr. Van Helsing, “You are a clever man, friend John; you reason well, and your wit is bold; but you are too prejudiced” (112). Unlike Seward, Van Helsing incorporates both industrial scientific modernity as well as ancient lore and Christianity in making his diagnosis. It is because of this open-mindedness and willingness to believe what logic would doubt that he, not Seward, is able to aid Lucy. Through Van Helsing, Stoker tries to warn the reader of becoming too confident in modern science so as to forget religion and faith. As Van Helsing himself
It also reflects his compunction for neglect of his education. Although Holden himself does not have any qualms about ruining his education, others around him, like Frome, express regret that what could have been, will never be.

There was once a saying that, it doesn’t matter if you lose the fight, as long as you didn’t back down to the battle. Many people are judgmental on whether you lose, but they don’t analyze the road you took to earn your respect, and your determination to stand strong, even when others expect you to fall. Therefore, standing up for what you believe in will always be more acceptable than selling out.
Upon meeting his maker, Tyrell highlights Roy’s perfectness, “You were made as well as I could make you”. This acknowledgement however, is not satisfying as Roy confronts Tyrell with the question of prolonging life. When told, however, that this was not a possibility, Roy’s anger leads him to killing his ‘maker’ feeling unsatisfied and disappointed. The anger he feels towards Tyrell leads him to also murder J.R Sebastian, with no need of justification. Like ‘The Creature’, Roy is angry with his maker, though in Scott’s world, if Tyrell is a representation of God, there is an idea that we can ‘kill God’ represented as Roy kills Tyrell.
Therefore, they had to remove the wardrobe – the symbol of beauty – from the apartment. Tone The tone of the piece can be described pessimistic verging on nihilistic due to the cycle of overpopulation that the story professes.
