Question for EVERYONE -- If a sculptor creates a flawed sculpture, isn't he to blame for the flaws?

If there was something wrong with the clay, shouldn't he have checked first to make sure he was using quality material? If there was something wrong with the integrity of the structure, shouldn't he have caught that before he was done? And if not, then I'm sure we can all agree that he's an inept or at least an imperfect craftsman, yes? kait, you're saying a PERFECT creation can act IMPERFECTLY? Well... what made it "perfect" in the first place? Why call it perfect if it's obviously so susceptible to temptation and disobedience?

Yes. This is coming from an artist-- any flaws my art contains are mine alone...I created it and it is my responsibility.

When I check into a hotel, and I find the toilet in my room is full of crap, do you think I call the maid? No, I call the management, and the toilet gets fixed in 5 minutes, and a free bottle of wine suddenly appears in the room too.

No. The art work itself obviously sinned and can only blame itself.

see where you're going, but your logic is flawed, for it assumes and projects human characteristics on to the artist with human definitions of flaw and wrong and accountability. Does the clay have free will? My ways are not your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts, says the Lord God.

naw, the devil made him do it - it's all Satan's fault - the prince of darkness - that's right Beelzebub - Lucifer, the son of the morning - everything's his fault from the beginning to the end.

yes how true and quite comparable to the kind of logic that religious cults use to convince others of their veracity by the use of loose parallels.

Sometimes the clay is perfect the sculptor comes to life and is perfect in every detail then it is put on a beautiful pedal-stool for all to witness it's perfection/beauty when someone bumps into the delicate scene and offsets the sculptor causing it to fall - hitting the floor and becoming damaged.

It depends on the medium being sculpted. Obviously your argument doesn't hold up to an ice sculptor. Do you blame him for the ice melting. Understand that God created man to have free will. God didn't want some robots and he didn't want to force them to love him. God did create man to worship him, not because he needs... More

I wouldn't blame him unless he had some sort of obligation to produce flawless sculptures, but sure it does mean he's an imperfect craftsman.

The sculpture is not flawed. Look at it again.

Yes, I'm an artist too and if I don't create a piece that is perfect than I'm probably just an amateur artist still learning my craft. I've been an artist and writer for many years and the extensive experience helps me make NO mistakes... More

No we can't all agree and I sure don't. Because the Creator and Archetect of this world, is perfect, but it is us that is not. He gave us free will, to choose His way or not. He did not make us into robots. He gave us the ability to reason and think and decide. He gave us a choice to follow Him and obtain life or to... More

Oh, you ask the BEST questions! I don't think a perfect being can create anything imperfect -- and if he does, ergo, he's not perfect. Just as a genius has immense trouble acting dumb. It can't be done! *laughs*

Flaws....? Is this a question about three dimensional works of art or is it something related to the fantasy of god-existence? Neglect is neglect... The individual who's head is filled with false notions is as negligent as the sot who's head is filled with alcohol. [][][] r u randy? [][][] .

The funny thing is, is that you know the answer to this, but you pretend you don't and you ask regardless. He created us without sin. We had the potential to sin though, and he knew we would. That doesn't make him inept, that makes him merciful. He knew we would rebel and become murderers, liars, adulterers, etc... and... More
