"I don’t know if I have ever thought of this before — the great problem of good on this planet.
The philosopher Augustine had asked two questions of the world:
If there is no God, why is there so much good?
If there is a God, why is there so much evil??
I wonder if I have spent a lifetime murmuring under my breath only the second question?
But why don't I first get hung up on the first question?
