Theodicy and the Three Legged Stool

Zach Weiner has put aside his dick jokes (temporarily, he promises!) to draw this very perceptive comic about theodicy.

For those that haven’t heard the word before, theodicy is an answer to the problem of evil. It’s an attempt to explain how there can be suffering in a universe run by an omni-everything God.

When I was a Christian, I always shortened the omnipotence leg: God has much more important things to do than micromanage human affairs. I think that eventually leads to deism. But in the end it’s unsatisfying. Ultimately, I don’t think humans will care about a God that doesn’t care about them.
