Brenda Chan 01/31/12 Weekly Assignment 3 Summaries : In “The Problem of Evil”, the author goes in depth on the issue of whether or not evil is support for the nonexistence of God. The author seems to take an objective view on the matter and presents both sides of atheists and theists. The article presents the logical form of the problem of evil (existence of evil is proof of the nonexistence of God) and evidential form of the problem (the types and quantities of evil in this world makes it improbable or unlikely that God exists) from the atheists’ side. There are also two theistic responses to the problem of evil: a theodicy (attempting to explain why God allows evil) and a defense (God has reasons to allow evil that one may not be able to explain). The author goes back and forth with showing theistic responses to atheistic claims and vice versa. In “The Wager” by Blaise Pascal, he talks about what one can gain and lose from believing in God. Pascal gives two options: either one can believe in God or not believe in God.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
