Why would a benevolent God allow evil into the world? The answer was asked thousands of years ago. There are a few possible answers:
- Maybe he won’t—then he is not benevolent and doesn’t deserve worship.
- Maybe he can’t—therefore he is not all-powerful.
- Maybe he wouldn’t—then he doesn’t exist.
- Maybe we don’t understand his reasons. Should we then abandon reason for understanding the world? Why can’t he make himself clear? Send down an explanation if he cares about us?
William of Occam’s Razor: When you hear hear hoofbeats, think horses, not unicorns. The simplest explanation is that he doesn’t exist.
