Mani, Manichaeism, and the
Attempted Refutation of Augustine of Hippo
24th June 2008
The Problem of Evil is an
age-old problem dealing with the dilemma of reconciling the suffering and evil
in the world with the existence of a good God.
The Problem of Evil is Darkness' tool to frustrate, confuse, and cause the seekers of truth to despair. The problem does not bother those who are not seeking the truth and those who do not believe in the existence of a Higher Intelligence that people call "God".
I have put forward a discussion of the Problem of Evil in a book form, choosing Manichaeism and the refutation of Augustine of Hippo as the means of discussing the various arguments related to the Problem of Evil. Augustine of Hippo argues in the context of the Christian personal God representing the Abrahamic religions. The dualist God of Mani represents (though not strictly) the ditheistic belief system.
I have presented my solution to the Problem of Evil at the end of the book, in the epilogue. My solution to the Problem of Evil goes beyond what any others have presented. For those people who do not have the time to read the entire book, I recommend reading at least the Epilogue.
