The problem of Evil
This is one of the most difficult contradictions for theologians to grapple. The argument states simply that God, the creator of the universe and all it’s properties, has certain necessary attributes. Among them is omniscience (all knowing), omnipotence (all Powerful), beneficence (all good.) A severe contradiction arises in attempting to reconcile the presence of evil, which may be defined as events and conditions that causes pain and suffering to sentient beings in the universe, with any kind of deity in the traditional normative sense as defined above.
How does our world view shift in consequence of this? How do we account for evil? What can we do about it? Join us for an interesting discussion.

The Tampa Humanist Association is the only AHA Humanist group in Hillsborough County. This is a county of more than 1 million people. If statistical averages are correct, than at least 150,000 of those people do not support conventional institutions of religion. Currently, our roles do not number more than 20. I think we can agree that there is room for growth.
We experienced a major setback with the death of president and cofounder Rob Byrch, but with still enthusiastic members and board, and support from our sister organization, the Humanist Society of the Suncoast, we continue to offer the people of Tampa, a local Humanist option.
