Why, Oh Why?

The forum uk.philosophy.atheism of UseNet was noisy today. One guy called Jim Hawkings expressed the sadness and anger in a way I can embrace:

“Is God willing to prevent evil but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
