I have run across this so many times that I've lost count, two times in the last 5 days or so. One from a source that surprised me. "How can there be a prefect omnipotent, omniscient, loving caring God when there is so much evil, human suffering and disease in the world?" This has bee a theological question for centuries. The Christian churches have handled it by saying that mankind has fallen from Grace because of the sin of Adam and Eve and the Original Sin. It makes a good story but is not an answer nor very reasonable. Here, I am going to attempt to reason my way through this apparent paradox. For the sake of argument, I have to accept some assumptions: God exists and is the creator and master of the universe. God is perfect, omnipotent, omniscient, loving, caring, rational, sane ,logical and reasonable. God is capable of creating perfection. Accepting these assumptions as valid, I argue as follows. There is ample evidence that mankind is an evolved animal and not created 6000 years ago in the same form that he is today. There is no reason to conclude that this evolution is complete and ended though we have somewhat removed ourselves from survival of the fittest. God can and has created perfect beings which we call his servants and/or angels. We are not perfect; therefore, not created perfect, but evolved. There must be a reason or purpose that God choose not to create perfection on earth but allows evolution to take place. If the revolt of Lucifer and Satan and the Sin Of Adam and Eve did actually take place God knew that it would happen and allowed it to happen. It must have been part of his plan for this world. If it was part of his plan Lucifer, Satan, Adam and Eve were doing God's will and thus there was no sin, original or not. Or, if not his actual will them operating as independent agents doing their will which was known and allowed by God. This still does not explain why God allows such horrible suffering and disease. It is not God's fault, but our fault, our responsibility. Again, given free will and individual responsibility it is up to us to make the world and ourselves right. We are born knowing all that we need to know and there is a cure for every disease here available on earth. We allow and toerate evil to happen here. We even make excuses for it and say that it is not their or our fault. We blame God for our own sins. If the world or we were created perfect there would be no way for us to grow, evolve, mature or learn anything. God can create all the perfection that he wants so he must have a reason for creating evolution and for us being evolved beings. Neither a sword nor a plow shear can be formed without repeated heating and hammering, quenching and tempering. We therefore must be some tool that God is making for himself. Some self reliant being capable of learning and growing to perfection, a being that has experienced all, the bad and good, that life has to offer. The image of perfection that we see before us is not evidence of our shortcoming nor criticism of our miserable state but a goal, a signpost, a lamp to show us the way and the eventual goal.
