The existence of evil and suffering in our world seems to pose a serious challenge to belief in the existence of a perfect God. If God were all-knowing, it seems that God would know about all of the horrible things that happen in our world. If God were all-powerful, God would be able to do something about all of the evil and suffering. Furthermore, if God were morally perfect, then surely God would want to do something about it. And yet we find that our world is filled with countless instances of evil and suffering.  These facts about evil and suffering seem to conflict with the orthodox theist claim that there exists a perfectly good God. The challenged posed by this apparent conflict has come to be known as the problem of evil.

This article addresses one form of that problem that is prominent in recent philosophical discussions--that the conflict that exists between the claims of orthodox theism and the facts about evil and suffering in our world is a logical one. This is the "logical problem of evil."

    In the philosophy of religion ‘natural atheology’ is defined as the branch of philosophy that attempts to prove the central beliefs of theists (people who believe in a God) as false [1]. One of the most impressive and strongest arguments of natural atheology is to do with the problem of evil.

    Basically, the problem of good and evil is quite a complicated and complex topic. It has no definite answer since it goes beyond the sphere of the material world and human knowledge is limited. This is not to say that the finite capacity of the human knowledge is inadequate in comprehending the said topic. Plausible explanations can still be formulated and accepted in responding to the issues mentioned above.

    Accordingly, if we would provide a justifiable explanation about the problem of evil, one''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s personal analysis is necessary but it has to be coupled with the arguments coming from the philosophical claims of the experts. Of course, everybody has his/her own explanation about the existence of evils in this world. Evils are usually viewed as something harmful or destructive to the normal flow of things. It can be caused by man or by nature.

    Everyday at least some kind of act happens where someone dies, where someone is killed. Anyone can read the newspaper or watch the news and find suicide bombings or mass murders that happened that day. Many have tried to understand the evil of this world and make sense of it, but the doctrine of evil is one of the most debated areas of philosophy. Many have come up with their own doctrines but only one doctrine of evil, by Augustine, remains the main source of understanding evil and where it comes from.

    In Augustine's time, the Manicheans dealt with the question of evil by teaching that, within man, there are two fundamental principles struggling for supremacy; one good and the other evil. In this battle it is the evil principle that gives rise to the immoral or sinful actions of an individual person. The essential problem with this doctrine was that it allowed the Manichean to escape moral responsibility for his own sin because a person could simply say that an immoral act was an instance where the evil principle that existed within him had overwhelmed the good nature.

    The assignment for this essay mentions only that God is omnipotent and all-loving, and omits the other traditional attribute, of omniscience. Therefore let us first consider how the debate goes if we allow God's ignorance of the suffering as His excuse for not stopping it. This approach gains some legitimacy thus:

    St Thomas Aquinas, in his Summa contra Gentiles , argues at length that God knows particular facts, not just universal truths. We may infer that God's omniscience was not universally acknowledged by medieval theologians.

    Evil can be defined into two main types, moral and natural evil. Moral evil refers to the wilful acts of human beings such as murder or rape and natural evil refers to natural disasters such as earthquakes or famine. These two forms of evil can be further divided into physical evil which refers to bodily pain or mental anguish and metaphysical evil referring to imperfection or chance e.g. deformity or crime going unpunished.

    The epistemic question posed by evil is whether the world contains undesirable states of affairs that provide the basis for an argument that makes it unreasonable to believe in the existence of God.

    The term “God” is used with a wide variety of different meanings. These tend to fall, however, into two main groups. On the one hand, there are metaphysical interpretations of the term: God is a prime mover, or a first cause, or a necessary being that has its necessity of itself, or the ground of being, or a being whose essence is identical with its existence. Or God is not one being among other beings even a supremely great being but, instead, being itself. Or God is an ultimate reality to which no concepts truly apply.
