The existence of evil seems inconsistent with the existence of a God who is wholly good, And can do anything. The argument is... All or most religions say that God is completely good, knows everything, And is all powerful. But this world is full of wickedness and bad things keep happening. This can only happen if... "God is unwilling to prevent evil, in which case it is not good or...God doesn't know about evil, in which case it does not know everything or... God can't prevent evil, in which case it is not all powerful or..." Some combination of the above. and so there is no being that is completely good, knows everything, and is all powerful. And so, there is no God. god can only exist if evil exists. You wouldn't even know if evil exists without evil. Here's the good part... Evil only exists in the absence of anything divine. Therefore because good exists, God does not exist. Btw, why would you want there to be a god? Why would you want to live in such a tyrannically run dystopia where there's no hope or purpose but to give praise to a being which apparently gives such little hope for your existence? And think about this, "No honest, legitimate, or palpable god [in wich case no god from any religion in the entire existence of the human race has even been proven to exist] would ever ask or demand to be worshiped. If it does, which is the case with nearly all religions, then this means that this god or god's are completely bankrupt and immoral. In my view it's all about the $$$Money sought by the greedy mortals that are god pretenders, etc. I'll call them the story tellers...
