Those who doubt the existence of God may want to spend more time considering the existence of intelligent “evil”. If there is no God, then I am “on my own”. But if there is an intelligent evil force, then I am in the greatest jeopardy. I am not suggesting another round in the debate over the classic problem of evil as it relates to theism. I am suggesting a full-on engagement with the ravages of evil. This is not about explanation; this is about survival.
