or he can but does not want to,
or he cannot and does not want to,
or lastly he can and wants to.
he is not omnipotent;
If he can, but does not want to,
he is not benevolent;
If he neither can nor wants to,
and if evil still exists
Then God must not be God.
God does not exist.
In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, and other people are going to get lucky; and you won't find any rhyme or reason to it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is at the bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good. Nothing but blind pitiless indifference. DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is, and we dance to its music. --Out of Eden, page 133.
We are as much a product of blind forces as is the falling of a stone to Earth, or the ebb and flow of the tides. We have just happened, and man was made flesh by a long series of singularly beneficial accidents. --Julian Huxley, The Human Degree, J.B. Lippincott Co., 1976.
