My research focuses on the evil-god challenge developed by Stephen Law (2010), who argues that if an evil god is just as likely as a good god, there is no good reason to accept one over the other, since the two are alethically equivalent. I apply the evil-god challenge to traditional arguments for the existence of God and propose responses to critics who argue that the notion of an evil-god is incoherent. I aim to defend the evil-god challenge against its opponents and demonstrate its strength as a challenge to any type of theism that advocates a god that has the qualities of perfect goodness or righteousness.
