Shit my Dad never taught me

My father was gone.

Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

-Epicurus (341 B.C. – 270 B.C.)

This is the so-called “Riddle of Epicurus”, and I would like to take a minute to address this. This is going to be a long entry, and I ask the readers to indulge me. I will try to make it worth their while.
