If a good God made the world, why has it gone wrong?

A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What do you compare the universe with when you call it unjust? If the whole show was bad and senseless from A to Z, so to speak, why do you, who are supposed to be a part of the show, find yourself in such violent reaction against it? A man feels wet when he falls into water because a man is not a water animal : a fish would not feel wet. Of course, you could give up your own idea of justice by saying that it is nothing but a private idea of your own. But if you do that, then your argument against God collapses too - for the argument then depends on saying that the world is really unjust, not simply that it does not happen to please your private fantasies.

That is why atheism is too simple.
