I will address the problem of evil.

We were created with free will. Since we abused our free will, evil came into the world.

Omnibenevolent: adj. All-loving, or infinitely good, usually in reference to a deity or supernatural being, for example, 'God'. Its use is often with regards to the divine triad, whereby a deity is described to be simultaneously omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent. This triad is used especially with the Christian god, Yahweh.

Con stated: "We were created with free will. Since we abused our free will,evil came into the world."
This can't be the case, if God was Omniscient he would of known we would abuse our free will since he is all knowing. This comes into the case is God not Omniscient since he didn't know we were gonna abuse the free will. Is God not Omnipotent since if he realized we were abusing the free will he could of just changed the way we were thinking, and thus remove all the evil in the world. Is God Omnibenevolent? If he is how can he with his Omniscient powers, and Omnipotent powers could he stopped our evil if he was against evil.

So either god is not Omniscient, Omnibenevolent. Omnipotent, none of the above, or only 2 of those things. God is either imperfect, not all knowing, not all powerful, or doesn't even exist whatsoever. I await con's second part of his argument, and thank you for getting me back to debating.

Why would such a thing exist in the first place ?

Oh, well I should change that. I believe in a person who created everything, but I believe him to be an imperfect person like all humans are.

On behalf of atheists: I really wish what50 (a self-described catholic) wasn't our spokesperson here.
