    I believe in a God who is utterly corrupt.

    So, how can I reconcile His existence with the existence of good in the world?

    Arguments please.

    Even his corruption is corrupt.

    Why would you possibly believe such a thing?

    If a cow is udderly corrupt, does one "cheese" her instead of milking her?

    Does this God promise everlasting life in return for a life of servitude and then fail to deliver? 😲

    Merely the absence of evil.

    Oh, do make an effort lads.

    I was thinking of a "cacodaemon-icy" along the following lines.

    Making everything straightforwardly bad would not be quite as bad as allowing some good things to exist and then sullying them. Hence, the supreme cacodaemon allows some good as a means of facilitating a greater badness.

    Semantically, it closely resembles "pretty darn tootin'".

    What? You lack faith ?

    You'll get sent to heaven for that.

    There are people who pay £100 an hour to be regaled with such mystical sagacity.

    For those little itty bitty goods, maybe you could consider the merits (if any) of the Smokey Robinson Principle:

    "A taste of honey is worse than none at all."
