The Problem of Evil Explained in Three Videos

In this set of three videos, Christian philosopher Greg Ganssle explains the classic argument that God does not exist, called ‘The Problem of Evil’. He distinguishes two versions of that argument. He gives a response to the deductive version of the Problem of Evil on behalf of someone who believes that God exists. Then Greg considers the evidential version of the Problem of Evil, and gives a theistic response. More resources by Greg Ganssle here. More videos like these here. [HT: Doug Geivett]

    Somebody should have sent these to Alex Rosenberg before his debate with William Lane Craig!

    Actually, the "if God exists everything would be perfect argument is very week."
    It is simply a justification of their disbelief.
    If God exists why did he put us here? To see how wealthy we could get?
    No this is a test and and opportunity to learn. In both cases it makes perfect sense that evil exists and that God exists.

    It is heartening to see the production of high quality videos from theists that address import topics. This and Bill Craig's video on the cosmological argument are the first such videos I've seen that I can imagine going viral.
