Leibniz would say, "If there's no God, we'd have to invent him so everything 
could function."

Hi Stephen P. King 
?
Leibniz' best possible world is a conjecture
based on L's two worlds of logic:
?
1) There is logic that is either always true or false, called the logic of 
reason or necessity.
????One could call this "theory"
?
2) The logic of contingency, also called the logic of "fact",?xperimental 
result,?
???r praxis, which can be true or false -- depending on the perfection? of the 
entity 
??or the time of occurrence.?"actuality"
?
Most people who acccuse God of injustice or unfairness by a supposedly loving 
God
confuse theory with actuality. Earthquakes do occur because the world has 
imperfections
or? cracks ior the cointinental plaes don't fit perfectly together.
?
And any fact must be that way for a reason, the reason also may be contingent, 
etc. 
up the line.

"Everything that is possible demands to exist." -- Leibniz


If everything possible exists (in Plato's heaven / the omniscient mind of God) 
then so do all universes, all possible histories, all possible observations and 
experiences, all points of view, all traces of the execution of all programs, 
etc. ?hus, if God is omniscient, he can't help the fact that bad things happen.
