Abstract for the talk: Skeptical theists hold that we should be skeptical about our ability to know the reasons that God would have for permitting evil, at least in particular cases. However, in this talk, I will argue that once skeptical theists are led to take into account actions that are wrong in themselves, as they must, they cannot escape the conclusion that there is a logical contradiction between the existence of an all good, all powerful God and the degree and amount of moral evil in our world.
