Epicurean Paradox. The problem of evil, also known as the Riddle of Epicurus, states: If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to, Then He is not omnipotent. If He is able, but not willing,  Then He is malevolent. If He is both able and willing, Then whence cometh evil. If He is neither able nor willing, Then why call Him God?
