Problem of Evil Solved

Hume’s answer, that, by coping with a smaller evil humanity could avert greater evil did not answer the question of the problem of evil. The question was not about how to avert a greater evil but rather “from where comes evil?”

What we call “God” and what we call “the Devil” refers to the same entity. That’s obviously a mad logic of our existence. But He says right here:

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.”  — Isaiah 45:7

So next time we go through some pain and suffering, let us look to the Lord. Perhaps he creates evil and causes suffering to fortify our souls. So yes! God can be benevolent or malevolent depending on who he is dealing with.

  1. Doesn’t explain animal suffering, so no, it’s doesn’t solve the Problem of Evil. Indeed, the life that was driven into existence on this planet knew only suffering for some 3.75 billion years before it stumbled upon the chemicals (enkephalin) and cellular structures (opioid receptors) with which it could recognise something resembling ‘happiness.’ Before that moment there was only the struggle.
