  • A Serious Problem Of Evil

    What is evil? That is a very involved question. Some may say that there is no such thing as evil and that everything that happens, happens for a reason and that we are just too simple minded or close to the situation to see what the purpose of it is. But for most evil is something “bad” it’s the opposite of good, it’s something we don’t like and try our hardest to not indulge in. To me there are two main types of evil. There’s natural evil like hurricanes, tornados, natural acts of the wild such as animal attacks etc. And then there’s evil done by man of all different sorts that range from murder to pollution, stealing, lying and everything in-between.

  • The Problem Of Evil Argument Analysis

    The Problem of Evil argument focuses on the fact the existence of evil in the universe contradicts with God’s existence. I challenge the soundness of the argument, especially two particular premises which deal with omnipotence and omnibenevolence. The argument is largely considered a valid or logical argument. To examine the validity of the argument, it is necessary, first, to define the term “God” in the argument. “God” is defined here as omnipotent and omnibenevolent. This is the definition of…

  • Swinburne's Existence: The Logical Problem Of Evil

    The first idea we face, is the logical problem of evil. What this questions is the possibility of there being an omnibenevolent, omnipotent, and omnipresent God and why evil still exists.
