Well – today was a day of evil.. I went to Cadbury College where I did three sessions with AS groups – all on the Problem of Evil.
See more on Evil at http://www.rsweb.org.uk/phil/evil.html and also on the ‘Irenaean theodicy’ at http://www.philosophyonline.co.uk/pages/irenaean.htm
(or buy our ‘Problem of Evil DVD’! Aimed at A level Religious Studies / Philosophy and Ethics: HERE )
I thought the discussions were very useful – and I liked the points made about the nature of God – indeed, all the questions today showed some real insight: and I hope to be back before too long.
I also found this YouTube video (with music – if you keep listening) that addresses Voltaire’s reaction to the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake, and the Problem of Evil – and it is well worth watching through…
