God and evil

Imagine you are watching live 24-hour news coverage of a recent earthquake. The death toll reaches into the hundreds, and then the thousands. Survivors sift among the ruins where their homes and communities once stood. These kinds of tragedies, you remind yourself, are not even uncommon.

Many philosophers have argued that such ‘natural evil’ constitutes strong evidence against the existence an all-knowing, all-loving, all-powerful God.

Do you agree?
