  • challenges to aug. theodicy
    • God may not have caused evil but he allows it
    • we could have been made to freely do the right thing - liberty of spontaneity
    • free will does not justify innocent suffering
    • fall from grace is unconvincing
      • humanity has evolved spiritually and morally not regressed(fallen)
    • natural evil existed before the fall
      • not a result of moral sin
    • natural evil being good from God's viewpoint is not comforting
    • redefining God's goodness obscures the issue
    • where did knowledge of evil come from if it wasn't created? a priori?
    • is this amount of evil necessary?
      • innocenrt suffering is unjustified
