Problem of evil

As a continuation of yesterday’s post on what god would allow the suffering of a child and where I think the free will defense is insufficient in explaining why there is so much evil.

Is divine hiddenness a plausible explanation for why we have so much evil?

    I’m not sure I understand the question. Isn’t divine hiddenness an argument against god as there is evil?

    I really do not know of God chose to hide himself for some reason or another… I am in the hotel, bored and I was watching this video and couldn’t withstand the last two minutes, I was crying like a baby. Where is God? Is it the moment people need him if he really exists but nevertheless his silence continues which makes me conclude that either he is evil and doesn’t give a damn shit about these kids or he simply doesn’t exist.

    The reason of this war by the way is purely religious and God is the ultimate responsible for it. If he really exists then he could have done a global appearance to everyone on this planet ending all the religious conflicts and misunderstanding, but again, either he doesn’t give a fuck or he doesn’t exist. In either ways, he is of no use to the human race

    Or could it possibly be divine benign indifference? That is, if there has to be a divine anything. 🙂

      Haha. Then we can all agree this divine whatever does not exist and even if it does, we are under no obligations to worship it. If anything we are to be afraid for our lives for this would be a cruel and sadistic fiend!




  6. Sorry, that would be a lot more effective as a reply at the bottom of the thread, but that wasn’t an option.
