Below I have attached the document on which the essay needs to be about. But I will provide the details again.
**NB: Before starting your essay, you should read this entire document as well as the information in the ‘Essay Assignments: Grading Criteria and Helpful Information’ folder. The articles given below are from The New York Times. Non-subscribers are limited to the number of articles they can read, but the Richland Library has full access to The New York Times. You can access The New York Times via this DCCCD Library web page.
**Topic #1: The Problem of Evil Chapter 3 of our text deals with the problem of evil. Read this article from The New York Times and write an essay that connects the article to the philosophical problem of evil. Your essay must include reference to chapter 3 of our text as well as at least one reference to an article/entry in either The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy or The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, through quotation and/or paraphrase. Rather than your opinion on the problem of evil, your essay should be a discussion of the problem of evil.
