Theocidy:  Theocidy The Existence of Evil and the Goodness of God Nomos:  Nomos In the sociology of religion of Peter L. Berger, nomoi are meaningful orders or worldviews of individuals. We want, perhaps need, to believe that our world has meaning and purpose; and that we an understand why things happen by uncovering the laws on which the world operates. Anomic:  Anomic Random, meaningless without explanation. Threaten the nomos. Varieties of Evil:  Varieties of Evil Moral Evil: suffering and pain inflicted on others by human beings…much of it pointless. Natural Evil: natural disasters, without direct human cause…floods earthquakes, tornadoes. Katrina:  Katrina Johnstown Flood:  Johnstown Flood Tornado:  Tornado Dahmer:  Dahmer weather:  weather Witch doctor:  Witch doctor Azande Granary:  Azande Granary Theocidy :  Theocidy Any proposed solution to the problem of evil that reconciles the existence of an all-good and all-powerful God with the evil that exists in the world. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz:  Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz 1646 to 1716 Theocidies:  Theocidies Dualism Karmic Theodicy of Participation Power is Morally Neutral Photos:  Photos Chimney:  Chimney Buchenwald:  Buchenwald Eli Weisel:  Eli Weisel Karma:  Karma Non-theistic view: operates like the natural law of gravity; impersonally and automatically. Theistic: divine being oversees the law of karma although the divine being may not be able to brake the law. Dharma:  Dharma The duty appropriate to one’s caste. Progress to the next life depends upon fulfilling one’s obligations. Saṃsāra:  Saṃsāra Wheel of Rebirth: an ongoing cycle of birth, death, and rebirth is assumed as a fact of nature. Most of these traditions, in their evolved forms, regard Saṃsāra negatively, as a fallen condition which is to be escaped. Samsara:  Samsara Samsara:  Samsara Theravada Buddhism:  Theravada Buddhism Way of the elders Denies the existence of a Soul Retails a karmic understanding of the world. Buddha:  Buddha manicheanism:  manicheanism Millenarianism:  Millenarianism having to do with the appearance of a messiah and a 1,000 year cycle. Millenarian groups typically claim that the current society and its rulers are corrupt, unjust, or otherwise wrong. They therefore believe they will be destroyed soon by a powerful force. The harmful nature of the status quo is always considered intractable without the anticipated dramatic change. In Medieval millenarianism the world was seen as controlled by demons and even up to the nineteenth century Chinese millenarianism used something like this motif, but with "demon" having a slightly different cultural connotation. In the modern world economic rules or vast conspiracies are seen as generating oppression. Only dramatic change will change the world and change will be brought about, or survived, by a group of the devout and dedicated. In most millenarian scenarios, the disaster or battle to come will be followed by a new, purified world in which the true believers will be rewarded. Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia:  Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia Sudan 1885:  Sudan 1885 General Charles 'Chinese' Gordon (1833-1885) The Madhi: Muhammad Ahmad ibn Abd (1834-1885) Varities of Islam:  Varities of Islam Sunni Most muslims belong to this branch Believe that any member of the tribe of Mohamed can rule as Caliphs. Shia Smaller group, mostly in Iran and Iraq Claim only members of the Prophet’s family can rule as Caliphs Shrine of Ali:  Shrine of Ali Revelations:  Revelations When the sixth seal is broken, there will be a violent earthquake and the sun will go as black as sackcloth; the moon turn red as blood, and the stars of the sky will fall onto the earth like figs dropping from a tree in a high wind. The sky itself will disappear like a scroll being rolled up and all the mountains and islands will be shaken from their places. Eschatology:  Eschatology From the Greek ἔσχατος meaning "last" + -logy it is a part of theology and philosophy concerned with the final events in the history of the world or the ultimate destiny of human kind, commonly phrased as the end of the world. In many religions, the end of the world is a future event prophesied in sacred texts or folklore. More broadly, eschatology may encompass related concepts such as the Messiah or Messianic Age, the afterlife, and the soul. Duer Sixth Seal:  Duer Sixth Seal comet:  comet Sir Isaac Newton:  Sir Isaac Newton Increase Mather:  Increase Mather Chain of Being:  Chain of Being Second Coming:  Second Coming September 11:  September 11
