The problem of evil (or argument from evil) is the problem of reconciling the existence of the evil in the world with the existence of an omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent (all-powerful) and perfectly good God. The argument from evil is the atheistic argument that the existence of such evil cannot be reconciled with, and so disproves, the existence of such a God.
We distinguish between two kinds of evil: By a natural evil Imean a state of affairs involving the suffering of an innocent human beingthat is not the direct consequence of any human action. A human evil,by contrast, is an episode of suffering caused by human activity. Intuitively,the human evils are the evils we inflict upon one another; the natural evilsare the evils we suffer at the hands of nature, independently of our owncollective agency. The problem of evil as it is standardly presented concernsboth sorts of evil. But the strongest version of the argument focuses onnatural evil alone; and that is the version we shall discuss.

They were still ringing when I slipped my tongue into her twat and searched for that fat clitoris, which was still hiding. Nurse Manners shifted her bulk to grind my nose against her dripping cunt. Her grunts acted as a guide and soon I was in the promised land and she was panting and still grinding that pussy in smaller and smaller circles as she neared her first orgasm of the day. I heard a gasp and then she went off like a cannon, flooding my face with a tidal wave of gash grease and pussy cream. I knew what she expected and her little pussy boy didn't let big momma down, sucking her pussy until it was dry and ready for a second round.

How does this bear upon evidential formulations of the argument fromevil? The answer would seem to be that if there can be evils that arelogically necessary for goods that outweigh them, then it is hard tosee how the mere existence of evil—in the absence of furtherinformation—can provide much in the way of evidence againstthe existence of God.
