Would God opt to allow the evil, pain, and suffering that we see?

“Yes, after all…
  • Our best goods require, risk, or result in suffering

  • “No, after all…
  • The world would be better

  • It's more loving/humane (even if not better)

      Choosing to prevent some sufferings that we see would be more humane/loving of God (even if it makes the world worse). This is relevant because God has a duty to treat his creation humanely.

      By way of response, however, couldn't it simply be that…
      • …God has no duties.[Forthcoming]
