Bad things happen for a reason, and other idiocies of theodicy
The problem of evil is a classic dilemma in the philosophy of religion. The relative ease with which the problem can be stated belies the depth of the challenge that it presents to traditional monotheism. Roughly, it can be summarised as follows:
If God is omnipotent, then He has the power to create a world without evil.
If God is omniscient, then no moment of evil goes divinely unnoticed.
If God is omnibenevolent, then He has the desire to rid the world of evil.
My Comments: Really good insights into some of these problematic themes that religion and philosophy has grapples with (and still continues to) since man has had enough sense to contemplate his relationship with nature.
