The classical debate about humanitarian intervention 2. Principles and main issues 2. The English School- arguments for and against humanitarian intervention 2.
Posted on July 9, By Scott Youngren Despite the scientific and philosophical arguments for the existence of God presented on this website and elsewhere, some readers may still be haunted by a persistent question: If he is more than just an imaginary big-daddy-in-the-sky, why does it seem that God is hiding from us?
It stands to reason that the inability of anyone to produce a unicorn is a pretty good reason not to believe in unicorns.
Varghese comments in The Wonder of the World: In order for you to see something physically, it must have shape and size and color. It must reflect light and work its way through our sensory channels until it is registered in the brain.
But if you apply these attributes to any being then it can no longer be thought of as infinite. All of the impressive displays of power in the world will not force us to love him. And if God could force us to love him, it would not really be love.
Love is not love unless it is freely chosen: By applying force, they can make you renounce your God, curse your family, work without pay…kill and then bury your closest friend or even your own mother.
All this is within their power. Only one thing is not: This fact may help explain why God sometimes seems shy to use his power. He created us to love him, but his most impressive displays of miracle—the kind we may secretly long for—do nothing to foster that love.
Love complicates the life of God as it complicates every life. God makes his existence very apparent, but keeps a low profile so that we can easily choose to reject him if we wish.
He chooses not to force himself upon us because he does not want us to be his puppets. Why would God want to seek to be in relationship with puppets?
Yancey makes this point clear by quoting a parable written by the 19th century Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard: The king was like no other king. Every statesman trembled before his power.
No one dared breathe a word against him, for he had the strength to crush all opponents. And yet this mighty king was melted by love for a humble maiden. How could he declare his love for her?
In an odd sort of way, his kingliness tied his hands.

If he brought her to the palace and crowned her head with jewels and clothed her body in royal robes, she would surely not resist—no one dared resist him.
But would she love him? If he rode to her forest cottage in his royal carriage…that too would overwhelm her. He did not want a cringing subject.
He wanted a lover, an equal…For it is only in love that the unequal can be made equal. If one takes the time to review the Bible, one will quickly see that many of the stories told share this underlying theme. But all of this is not to say that God remains hidden.
Rather, it is to say that he communicates his presence using subtle intimations so as to not be forceful. One such intimation is that of beauty. Indeed, the vast beauty and richness we experience in nature, human relationships, art, music, culture, etc.
Beauty points toward truth. Dirac was more concerned with beauty in an equation than whether the equation matched an empirical experiment because he had discovered that beauty was a more accurate indicator of truth.
Almost every contemporary physicist knows that beauty is the fundamental indicator of truth in his or her analysis.PREVIEW: SCAI/HFSA Expert Consensus Document on Defining the Spectrum of Cardiogenic Shock (video link) SCAI produces and endorses clinical documents and guidelines to help practicing clinicians improve patient care.
