Dr. Ronald Davidson discusses the many suppositions that cause people to believe that God cannot co-exist with evil. He speaks in depth on the supposition that God is rational and the effect of this supposition on people’s doubt that God and evil can simultaneously exist. As someone who is not a theist, he then speaks about his personal belief that “happenstance” is often mislabeled as evil and points out the difference between evil and distress. He breaks the question into pieces and addresses both the question of the existence of evil and the question of the existence of God.
