But precisely, you consider this evil but is it actually Evil? You haveno moral standpoint of which to call this evil. (this doesn't mean you don't have morals by the way) Here's what i mean. How can you tell what wonky line is if you don't know what a straight line is. Without God there is not Objective Right or Wrong. If God doesn't exist evil can't exist. Because God is the Standard of GOOD with which we can call things Evil. without the standard of absolute Good there can only be subjective right or wrong. For example, you think something is "evil" because of Society. It's all social relativism. To a Nazi, the killing of those Jews was not evil. Because there was no absolute right or wrong. Due to social relativism, aka, the absence of absolute right/wrong, society can only say thing's like murder are wrong in comparison to relative society. So murder can't be "Evil" per se. Merely undesirable.
- If God did not exist, then objective moral values would not exist.
- Evil exists.
- Therefore, objective moral values exist.
- Therefore, God exists.
God must exist for EVIL to exist. otherwise you must not believe in evil. If you don't believe in evil, then you may still have an argument for god not to exist. so your question should really be, If god exists, why do undesirable things happen?
