Is the Reality of Evil Good Evidence Against the Christian God?

It was a pleasure to meet and dialogue with Dr. Shermer on the issue of God and evil. It is certainly an important topic for believers and skeptics alike. In this article I will respond to some of the debate that we engaged in as well as the written article Shermer has published in response to it. It might be pertinent if I lay out some agreements between us. First, we both agree that evil is not a thing in itself (I will provide a definition of evil later). Evil is not an entity or a noun, but an adjective that describes something. Second, we both believe that morality is something known rather intuitively, albeit for different reasons. Third, we both take morality to be objective. Now for the differences.

The topic of our discussion was “Is the Reality of Evil Good Evidence Against the Christian God.”
