God did, according to Christianity.
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Funny Christians get silent on this verse.
a universe without evil would be evil. Because evil is the choice to do what you know is wrong
Does not logically follow. The universe is not a choice, as there is no alternative.
christians are not silent on this verse. That verse is just translated too strongly and the word for evil used here is "rah" it does not mean evil it's meaning is closer to woe or calamity THAT SAME word is used elsewhere in the scriptures and it's not translated into the word evil.
In the old testament many people are given the title son of god the entire nation of israel is called sons of god. It is the title son of man that is greater.
