Matt Andorf, “Whence Evil?”


Is the idea of a perfectly good, omnipotent and omniscient god inconsistent with a world that contains evil? I will examine attempts made by philosophers and theologians to show the compatibility with a good god and the all too common presents of evil found in our world. We will examine the so called “free will defense” as well as an alternative theodicy advanced by John Hick.

Everybody is welcome. Feel free to come with your lunch.
