Document Summary

For some, there is no evidential grip. It is wrong to believe without evidence. Heres an argument against the existence of god: If god is omniscient, he knows if there is evil. If god is omni-benevolent, he abhors evil. If god is omnipotent he can eliminate what he abhors. Therefore there is no evil if god exists. Since the argum. is dedcutively valid, the only way to attack it is t show that a premise is false. So prehaps the idea that god is omni-s/b/p is wrong. What would such a new god be like - recall greek pntheon. manichaeism/xoorasteriansim. Suppose we were created by technologically advanced aliens? ( worship them? they count as god?) The premise which asserts that if god exists then there is no evil can also be attackd. Some bad things make us better people (ex. let the baby fall when learning to walk ) God wants us to be as good as possible.
