Does God Allow Evil: Is the Existence of God Compatible with the Existence of Evil?
Because of the existence of evil, there cannot be a monotheistic God (as traditionally conceived).
The evil that exists in the world suggests that God did not create it.
If God were omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent, then evil would not exist.
The concept of the God of Classical Theism is incoherent because within the attributes of God contradict each other and they also contradict our experience of the universe.
The traditionally conceived God is not internally coherent, even without any external observations.
Moral goodness is only possible if there is free-will. But free will is only meaningful if it entails the possibility of choosing evil.
Humans are limited in their capacity to conceptualize God, and thus are incapable of accurately judging the relationship between evil and a divine being.
Asserting that evil exists posits moral value. But there cannot be moral value without God.
God can co-exist with evil.
If human spirits desired a world that contained evil because of the potential benefits (learning and growth), then God giving them what they want is not evil.
