Problem of Evil

The problem of evil is the challenge of reconciling undesirable observations with trust in a good God. Many atheists esteem horrendous evils associated with a law of nature, such as severe natural disasters or debilitating diseases, to be evidence against the existence of God. Moral evils, such as when a person freely chooses to harm another, tend to present a less serious challenge to belief in God due to broad acceptance of the free will defense. Responses to the problem of evil generally explore the nature of good and evil, affirm that evil exists, and seek to justify God in permitting evil based on some necessity associated with greater good.
