Can any religionist out there answer the Epicurean Paradox? This goes as follows:-


If God is willing but not able, then he is not all powerful. If God is able but not willing, then he is malevolent. If God is both willing and able, then why is there evil in the world? If God is neither willing nor able, then why call him God? Any argument that God is both willing and able but allows evil while religion fails to provide a concise and definitive explanation as to why will not suffice.

    I'm all for the freedom to choose, but to choose correctly you need knowledge, yet God denied mankind fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. Surely choosing to freely love God, with knowledge, is better than loving in ignorance.

    Now there's another paradox. If God created all things and being perfect, all things created must be perfect, God must have created evil.
