  • The problem of evil
    • Mackies inconsistent triad
      • God is omnipotent
      • God is wholly good
      • Evil exists
      • How can these all be the case at the same time? They're mutually exclusive.
    • RESPONSES
      • God does not exist
      • God does exist but doesn't have all the qualities that have been attributed to him
      • God does exist, and has all the properties of perfection, but we shouldn't expect justice in this life
      • God does exist, and has all the properties of perfection, but we suffer because of the greater good of human free will (Free will defence)
      • God does exist, and has all the properties of perfection, and suffering leads to a greater spiritual good (Soul making)
