Pandemic, Anthropocentrism, and the Problem of Evil

Large scale catastrophic events—like the coronavirus pandemic—have been used as evidence against the existence of an all-powerful, all-loving God: the so-called Problem of Evil. These arguments often assume that evil is to be measured (and judged) in relation to human beings.

In this presentation, Dr Kaldas tests this anthropocentric assumption and questions its validity as a foundation for the Problem of Evil, using the pandemic as a test case.
