Argument for the Existence of God Based on Evil In the following essay, I will start by outlining the argument against the existence of God based on the existence of evil. I will then follow up by defining any relevant terms and assumptions. I will then proceed with my attack on this argument against the existence of God by rejecting the second premise, which states: that if an all-PKG being existed, there would be no evil. Finally, I will state any objections to my argument. This essay concerns itself with proving that God does not exist, however my personal belief is that God does exist.
Iago’s monologue characterizes him as the worker of Evil by paralleling the Bible in regards to his intentions; “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). The dialogue between the duke and the senators esteems reason as the way to truth and reaffirms the futility of appearances. In lines one through thirteen reveals the Duke and Senators’ certainty in the Turkish fleet approaching Cypress despite the inconsistent reports of the number of Turkish fleets.
In this essay his presentation of victim and villain will be explored as throughout the play his progression into a villain is evident. The Merchant Of Venice was written by poet and playwright William Shakespeare in the 16th century. This play was set in Venice, a Christian city with Jewish residents. The play is about Shylock; a Jewish moneylender, trying to make a living and surviving in a city that despises and alienates him. This is because it is known at that time, Christians and Jews disliked one another, there was much prejudice against Jews because of their religion.

This behavior now could be explained in part with the psychoanalysis theory because Sigmund Freud, the founder of the psychoanalysis theory, argues that the conscious beliefs and thoughts can be understood in channeling of unacceptable impulses via the defense mechanisms. This means that in Mark Chapman’s head, according to psychoanalysis theory, the unacceptable impulses (extreme infuriation by John Lennon’s denunciation of Jesus and the Beatles, to kill Lennon) was channeled through the defensive mechanism of him of protecting others as he thought he would become some kind of guardian angel if he killed Lennon. So In his mind, this train of thought soon turned in to firm belief that Killing John Lennon was the right thing to do. Another Significant part of the psychoanalysis theory that could be used to explain Chapman’s behavior is the personality structure. That Id, Ego and Superego constantly battle for the right way to behave and live life.
He wanted to punish Germany and weaken them for what they have caused to European countries and wanted them to pay for the reparations so that France can rebuild itself. Meanwhile, Woodrow Wilson wanted to make a fair treat to end the war. He didn’t want a harsh peace and was more sensible than Clemenceau and David George. Woodrow wanted justice to be paid.

Short yet capturing scenes like this one are the ones that get your emotional state to stay tuned. As we keep watching we find out how oppressed those who aren’t wealthy can come to be. Europeans, who seek visas but don’t have money, power or know any one find themselves being swept away to concentration camps. We meet a fortunate character Rick Blaine who owns a very popular club and has run across some papers by sheer luck.

Georges Clemenceau wanted revenge. He wanted to be sure that Germany could never start another war again. Lloyd George personally agreed with Wilson but knew that the British public agreed with Clemenceau. He tried to find a compromise between Wilson and Clemenceau. Germany had been expecting a treaty based on Wilson's 14 points and were not happy with the terms of the Treaty of Versailles.
In the court room scene, traditionally the victim would be sat down but in the film we see that Antonio (the culprit) is seated whereas Shylock (the victim) is standing. This shows Anti-Semitism towards Shylock as the Duke, who is Christian, proclaims Antonio by his name, but calls Shylock “Jew”. By doing this the modern audience feel sorry for Shylock. During this scene tension mounts, as Shylock continues to demand for his pound of flesh and it seems that the laws of Venice will let him have his way. This reaches its height in the trial scene,
Auden’s poem is set in New York; he had taken a trip there at this time. In the first stanza of the poem he writes “I sit in one of the dives on Fifty-Second Street” and this tells us his current location; a dive, which was a rough bar during that time period. Auden’s whole poem is based in this bar but he goes on to tell us about other places and other people’s lives. He then writes “Uncertain and afraid”, this is highlighting and knowledge us about his sexuality. Auden is a homosexual which wasn’t very accepted in this time period.
