p. 493. An argument against the existence of God
- Stephen Law
God in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam has three important characteristics: omnipotence, omniscience, and supreme benevolence. Through these three characteristics, theism is challenged by the logical problem of evil (if there is an omnipotent, omniscient God, evil can't exist) and the evidential problem of evil (the existence of evil gives good evidence against God's omnipotence and omniscience). ‘An argument against the existence of God’ outlines the problem of evil and discusses how those who believe in God respond to the problem. What is the evil god hypothesis? How do we explain miracles and religious experience?
