Why Do You Believe Podcast on CosmicSkeptic and the Problem of Animal Suffering

I recently returned to the Why Do You Believe? podcast to discuss the problem of animal suffering with Adam Tucker.

Adam brought me back on to discuss a YouTube video made by Alex O’Connor, also known as CosmicSkeptic. Alex claims that the problem of animal suffering is Christianity’s number-one problem and argues that the amount of non-human animal suffering in our world is good evidence to believe that an all-good, all-powerful, all-knowing God does not exist. In our discussion, Adam and I break down a few of Alex’s claims, and I provide Christian responses.

Although our discussion was over an hour long, I was only able to provide brief responses. So, if you find this topic interesting and want to dive deeper into Christian solutions to the problem, here are links to some of the books I mentioned in the video:
