If God is all-powerful, all-seeing and perfectly good, why is there evil and harm in the world? Why are there genetic birth defects, genetic and acquired diseases, and natural disasters? August Berkshire will critically examine the justifications that have been offered for the behavior of God, and whether the possibility of an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and omnibenevolent God is precluded by the existence of gratuitous evil.
August Berkshire is a founding member and past President of Minnesota Atheists, and a nationally known atheist speaker.
