This is an arguement that has gone on for centuries. here is where the arguements are put forward and also put to the test.
Ah, How exciting! The most compelling cases can be made with theodice, or the lack thereof. Theodice is an explanation for the problem of evil under the assumption that God exists. To believe in God without a theodice means forfeiting one of His 3 divine attributes (omniscience, omnipotence, omnibenevolence).
I was raised catholic and probably will continue to be catholic, but I’ve never seen a good theodice, and I don’t intend to forfeit any of the divine attributes.
Atheism makes a pretty good case for itself…
I wouldnt consider theodice to be an argument to disprove God.
It is indoctrinated in many religions let alone Christianity that God has a hand in creating evil. If not, at least, God has a tolerance for its existence.
Evil is another test for God, another experiment, just like the creation of man.
God needs evil for relevance, he created everything in a display of prowess and therefore evil. God created man with freewill to test mankind to see for himself his power.
God created evil in the same vein.
Evil is justified by Gods existence when you accept God as the creator of all things.
