It seems to me that the problem of evil can be accused of the same excluded middle as [[Liar, Lunatic or Lord]]: how do we know that "God doesn't want evil", "God can prevent evil", and "God knows about all evil" covers all of the bases? Granted, I can't think of any other possibilities, and it looks as though no one else has, either, but how do we know there isn't a "none of the above" explanation that allows for both God and evil? --[[User:Arensb|Arensb]] 06:57, 17 July 2006 (MST)

It seems to me that the problem of evil can be accused of the same excluded middle as Liar, Lunatic or Lord: how do we know that "God doesn't want evil", "God can prevent evil", and "God knows about all evil" covers all of the bases? Granted, I can't think of any other possibilities, and it looks as though no one else has, either, but how do we know there isn't a "none of the above" explanation that allows for both God and evil? --Arensb 06:57, 17 July 2006 (MST)

We don't intend to work in a vacuum. That is how the argument goes as I understand it, and there are probably apologetic counter-arguments that are worth considering. Go find some good web pages on the subject and start copying or paraphrasing. If you find a strong Christian response, you can just post it and somebody will come respond to it soon. --Kazim 07:37, 18 July 2006 (MST)
