Foreknowledge, Evil, and Compatibility Arguments

Faith and Philosophy 28 (3):269-293 (2011)
Abstract
Most arguments against God’s existence aim to show that it is incompatible with various apparent features of the world, such as the existence of evil or of human free will. In response, theists have sought to show that God’s existence is compatible with these features of the world. However, the fact that the proposition that God exists is necessary if possible introduces some underappreciated difficulties for these arguments
