The debate over the existence of God and the presence of evil is ages old. The greek philosopher Epicurus pondered this seeming contradiction. He wrote, “Is God willing to prevent evil but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

In the modern age, this debate landed in a court of law. In 2007, a state senator sought an injunction against God for His many malicious acts. In his lawsuit, the senator claimed God has caused “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.” The judge eventually dismissed the case because the Almighty could not be properly notified of the lawsuit because of his unlisted home address.

Today, that debate continues on Kevin Conover’s Educate For Life radio show. He is joined by guests Clay Jones and Sean Taylor. Clay Jones is a professor at Biola university and is writing a book, Why God Allows Evil, and speaks widely on that subject. Find him on the web at http://www.clayjones.net. Sean Taylor is an active member of the secular humanist, skeptic and atheist communities in Southern California including the San Diego Coalition of Reason.

Tune in to this engaging discussion and debate on this important and age old topic.

This episode first aired on May 14th, 2016.
