Evil, Freedom, and the Road to Perfection in Clement of Alexandria
The epistemic question posed by evil is whether the world contains undesirable states of affairs that provide the basis for an argument that makes it unreasonable to believe in the existence of God. This discussion is divided into eight sections. The first is concerned with some preliminary distinctions; the second, with the choice between deductive versions of the argument from evil, and evidential versions; the third, with alternative evidential formulations of the argument from evil; the fourth, with the distinction between three very different types of responses to the argument from evil: attempted total refutations, defenses, and theodicies. The fifth section then focuses upon attempted total refutations, while the sixth is concerned with defenses, and the seventh with some traditional theodicies. The possibility of more modest variants on defenses and theodicies, based on the idea of global properties, is then considered in section eight. These tend to fall, however, into two main groups.
3. The Problem of Evil and Theodicy
Alvin Plantinga's free-will defense is a logical argument developed by the American analytic philosopher Alvin Plantinga and published in its final version in his book God, Freedom, and Evil. Mackie beginning in In , Mackie conceded that Plantinga's defense successfully refuted his argument in The Miracle of Theism , though he did not claim that the problem of evil had been put to rest. The logical argument from evil argued by J. Mackie , and to which the free-will defense responds, is an argument against the existence of the Christian God based on the idea that a logical contradiction exists between four theological tenets in orthodox Christian theology.

За конторкой сидела только одна секретарша, норовившая избавиться от назойливых пациентов. Беккер застыл в дверях, не зная, как поступить. Необходимо было срочно что-то придумать. - Con permiso! - крикнул санитар. Мимо стремительно проплыла каталка.
Сьюзан, - тихо сказал Стратмор. - Нужен код. - Код? - сердито переспросила. Она посмотрела на панель управления. Под главной клавиатурой была еще одна, меньшего размера, с крошечными кнопками. На каждой - буква алфавита.
