EVIL AND GOD
DR JOAD’S ARTICLE ON ‘GOD AND EVIL’ LAST WEEK1 SUGGESTS the interesting conclusion that since neither ‘mechanism’ nor ‘emergent evolution’ will hold water, we must choose in the long run between some monotheistic philosophy, like the Christian, and some such dualism as that of the Zoroastrians.
