God, Evil, and the Free Will Defence

Alvin Plantinga offers his free will defence for the existence of God. He argues (over two videos, 22 minutes) that it is logically possible that an omnipotent God could not create a world with both free will and have beings that never choose to perform at least one evil action. Having demonstrated that God and evil can logically coexist all that remains is the curious problem of people thinking they know better than God while at the same time asserting that God does not exist.
