A Quote by Epicurus on god, faith, religion, evil, atheism, truth, reality, intelligence, presence, enlightenment, and motivation

 

If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to

 

 Then he is not omnipotent.

 

If he is able, but not willing

 Then he is malevolent.

 

If he is both able and willing

 Then whence cometh evil?

 

If he is neither able nor willing

 Then why call him God?

Epicurus (c. 341 - c. 270 BC)
