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)

Animal suffering

The article states: "Animals were suffering long before mankind, Adam and Eve, and original sin came into the picture." Hmm. According to the first creation story in Genesis, the animals were only created one or two days before Adam. Is that even long enough to say they suffered at all before A&E's original sin? Maybe everyone got screwed at the same time. <g> - dcljr 15:18, 28 June 2007 (CDT)
