  • The Augustinian Theodicy
    • God is perfect so he created the world perfectly...no evil was present
      • Evil is a privation of good (privatio boni)
    • Natural and moral evil were brought around by the misuse of free will of humans and angels during the Fall
    • We deserve to suffer as we are all "seminally present in the loins of Adam", meaning we have original sin of Adam's misuse of free will
      • God has no right to intervene and stop suffering
