An Atheist Explains Suffering

A challenge to explain suffering is often a question asked to Christians. Some will wonder if a loving God exists, then how could there be suffering. This is a fair question and worthy of a reasonable response. However, this question is not exclusively for a believer in God, the atheist must explain suffering or the problem of evil as well.

Below is a video of one atheist’s explanation of suffering in the world. If you were an atheist, how would you explain why suffering exists in a world that you believe has no God? To paraphrase this young atheist’s answer “crap happens” would be the best answer I could give as well.

Watch this video to see what insight to the question you can gain.
