Its Worth a Thought...
Have you ever wondered about evil?
Why do we have it? And if there’s a God why doesn’t he stop it?
If you have, you’re in good company because many people throughout history have grappled with this problem. One of the earliest on record to examine this challenge was a bloke called Epicurus who was born in 341BC. As an ancient Greek philosopher he founded a school of philosophy that is known for, among other things, that the pursuit of pleasure is the main focus in life and secondly that after death there is nothing. Both of these elements lead to emptiness in the thinking person’s life. He is also known for the giving us the Epicurean paradox – but more about that later.
