The Logical problem of evil is the claim that evil and the God of classical theism (as defined as omnibenevolent, omnipotent and omniscient) cannot exist together. In other words, there is no possible world in which both evil and the God of classical theism exist. Their co-existence is impossible. Mackie argued for this.



The Evidential problem of evil is the claim that an imperfect world, due to the existence of evil, is better evidence for an imperfect or non-existent God than a perfect one. It is possible that evil and a perfect God exist together however it is more likely that they don’t and therefore we have most reason to believe that they don’t and that therefore the God of classical theism does not exist. Hume argued for this.
