Atheists make a big fuss about the “problem of evil” and how they cannot in good conscience accept that God exists in the face of a world full of innocent people suffering tremendously due to disease and poverty. Curiously, they are not equally perturbed by the prospect of innocent people suffering tremendously at the hands of the wicked who themselves live comfortable lives and will never have to face any consequence or repercussion for their crimes.

And when you think about it, which scenario ought to be more troubling? In the world of the theist, innocent people who suffered due to disease and poverty will ultimately be recompensed for the pain they endured. But in the world of the atheist, evil is never requited.

How ironic, then, for atheists to accuse the God they don’t believe in of being unjust when they are otherwise perfectly content with the idea of a world without ultimate justice.
