If it appears self-evident to some people that there is a perfectly wise, good, and powerful being, it appears equally self-evident to many other people that the existence of such a being is inconsistent with the amount and kind of evil which exists in the world. Lastly, we know what sort of propositions have appeared to be self-evident to nearly everyone and have never been in any danger of being refuted. They are always propositions which assert that one quality is necessarily accompanied by a certain other quality; they are never propositions which assert that there exists an obejct which has such and such qualities. Now the proposition that God exists is of the latter kind …” Charlie Dunbar Broad, Religion, Philosophy and Psychical Research (London: Routledge: 2000), 168.
