Theodicy: REL 424
course encapsulates discourses on the reality of evil in the world and various
intellectual arguments, positions, defences and theodicy. There are various
forms of evil: natural and moral mainly. Connections between these two kinds of
evil can be drawn from the anthropogenic free will and actions on the universe.
However, the nuances of orthodox theism in regards to its claim of the
perfectly moral God, who is omniscient and omnipotent escalated to the problem
of evil. This does not suggest the problems caused by evil but the scholarly
debates of the reality of evil as evidence for atheism or as against theism. In
as much evil is inexcusably, an existential reality in the world, humans must
possess good understanding of it.
