Abstract:
In this essay I present a useful structure upon which to understand the problem of evil. In presenting this structure, which I call the Essential Principles Theory of Creation (EPTC), I endeavor to help both novice students and respected scholars more easily understand the points of tension and areas of similarity between the theories surrounding the problem of evil. I also argue that the Essential Principles Theory of Creation is an accurate depiction of how the world was made. In Part 1, I focus on Ultimate Logic, or the system in which God has chosen to adhere to. I distinguish Ultimate Logic from Human logic. In Part 2, I explain the EPTC in depth. I then go on to apply it to some of the responses to the problem of evil. I focus on Alvin Plantinga, Schelling, and finally Process philosophy. In Part 3, I directly discuss the utility of the EPTC. Based on the previous analysis, I argue that, at the very least, the EPTC is a useful tool in understanding the problem of evil.
