The problem of innocent suffering--usually called 'the problem of evil' by philosophers--is the most important argument against the existence of God. Dr. William Lane Craig differentiates between the emotional and intellectual problems of evil in order to help keep our thinking about this controverted subject clear. He further differentiates between internal and external versions of the intellectual problem of evil, arguing that while the former is generally thought to have been resolved, the latter remains a subject of debate. During his morning lecture Dr. Craig sets up the problem and discuss the internal version; during the afternoon lecture he addresses the external version.
