Re: jar and Phat and the God They Each Market
Let us consider the common theistic belief that God is very powerful. God is the epitome of goodness and he possesses the power to control everything on earth. Now let me introduce you to a problem presented by the famous philosopher Epicurus,
How can a good, all-powerful God tolerate evil? If he can’t stop evil from happening, he can’t be truly all-powerful. But if he is all-powerful and is not inclined to stop the evil persisting on earth, how can he be all-good?
This is commonly known as the Problem of Evil and still puzzles a lot of people. Presumably since everything comes from God, so does evil. God could have saved millions of Jews in WW2 from being killed, but he didn’t. Why did he allow evil? Was it something he wanted to happen?
