Princeton Project in Philosophy and Religion

Can we rationally believe in the existence of an all-powerful and all-good God in the face of horrendous evils and suffering? Is it acceptable to believe that such a God permits human beings (and other animals) to suffer for the sake of some greater good? What if we would prefer not to suffer? Can we fairly apply human moral principles to a divinity? Are there other ways to understand and explain this apparent paradox?

Join us for an animated discussion between two philosophers on these perplexing questions, and share your views: James Sterba – an atheistic philosopher and professor at Notre Dame and  Daniel Rubio – a theistic philosopher and postdoctoral researcher at Princeton.
