An Omniscient Moral Entity Cannot Create a Universe Containing Immorality

Poetaster
popculturepooka

This topic can become mired in cross-purposes of vocabulary, so I will allot the first round for acceptance, definitions, clarifications, etc.Definition: An omniscient entity is one which lacks no knowledge of any information, whether necessary or contingent, for at least one point of its existence.I posit this so as to not definitionally exclude different versions of omniscience from the argument.
