The Problem of Pain

In this thought-provoking episode, hosts Mr Rennie and Mr Wright discuss the concept of pain and its role in understanding the afterlife. Drawing from literature such as Red Dwarf and C.S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce, they delve into what makes hell the worst place in the universe. They explore whether hell needs to be physically unpleasant or if it lies in the torment of knowing what one has missed out on. Additionally, they present a story from a concentration camp and C.S. Lewis’s idea that memories of past pains will appear as pleasures once in heaven. The conversation also touches on atheist arguments against God and the strong emotional appeal of the argument from pain.
