Carnivals & Comments

[Update: moved to front from May 23.]
The next Philosophers' Carnival will be on Monday. Keep an eye out for posts from other bloggers you'd like to nominate. You can check the list of nominations here. Also, be sure to pick one post of your own to submit by the end of the week.

In other news, there are some new comments on my old post on the Problem of Evil & Free Will. I think (apparently contrary to everyone else in the world) that considerations of free will make the problem of evil all the more serious for theism. People's substantive freedom is impinged upon all the time, as when a murderer kills you against your will, or when you suffer from addiction or other mental illness which impedes your autonomy. A truly benevolent God would do more to protect our freedom (of both body and will). Anyway, read the post for the full details, and respond (there) with any comments you might have -- I'm curious to hear what others think of the argument.
