Such is the case with well known ID champion William Dembski and the means by which he defends his particular theodicy, or "answer to the problem of evil." Originally his theodicy was presented in an on-line article that has since been turned into a book, The End of Christianity: Finding a Good God in an Evil World. A book that is regrettably endorsed with gushing remarks from other such apologetic luminaries like Hank Hanegraaff and J. P. Moreland. Steve Hays offers his overview of the book HERE.
Dr. Terry Mortenson also responds with a critique of Dembski's original article that not only interacts with his main arguments, but demonstrates why they fail to answer the question and how only a young earth creationist perspective can adequately explain the problem of suffering in the world.
Christian Theodicy in Light of Genesis and Modern Science: A Young-Earth Creationist Response to William Dembski
The PDF is available HERE.
I submit that this focus on “Christian theology” or “Christian theism” is an inadequate target to begin with. The goal ought to be to develop a theodicy that is consistent with properly interpreted biblical revelation. ...
In reality, the debate about the age of the universe is a conflict of worldviews—a conflict between the evolutionary, naturalistic, uniformitarian interpretations of some of the scientific data, on the one hand, and on the other hand the exegetically strong and historically orthodox young-earth creationist understanding of Scripture and the interpretations of the same data and more data based on biblical assumptions. These evolutionary interpretations are based on anti-biblical philosophical assumptions that dominate the modern scientific enterprise. But the scientific methods do not require these secular assumptions nor was modern science developed on the basis of these assumptions. Rather, it developed in the womb of the biblical worldview (Hooykaas 1972)....It is a troubling mystery that in his acceptance of old-earth geology and astronomy Dembski, as a philosopher, seems to ignore this critically important philosophical point that young-earth creationists have been making for years in both scholarly and popular literature and in DVDs.
