Defining ‘gratuitous evil’: a response to Alan R. Rhoda

  • DOI:
  • Published online: 01 July 2010

In his article, ‘Gratuitous evil and divine providence’, Alan Rhoda claims to have produced an uncontroversial theological premise for the evidential argument from evil. I argue that his premise is by no means uncontroversial among theists, and I doubt that any premise can be found that is both uncontroversial and useful for the argument from evil.
