[2011-Jun-30] - Isn't the Theodicy explanation backwards?

Postby webuser » Wed Jul 27, 2011 12:24 pm

Comic 2292 shows the problem of Theodicy (why people suffer, or why there is evil) resting on the idea of God's omniscience, omnipotence, and omnibenevolence.

The comic shows that the removal of God's omniscience leads to "free will" and the removal of God's omnipotence leads to the idea that "God has bigger concerns than you."

Isn't it the other way around? If God isn't omniscient (doesn't know everything about human affairs), it means he has bigger concerns than us. If God isn't omnipotent (can't change everything in human affairs), it means humans have free will.
