Conversations with Angie: Clarification on Plantinga's argument

I’m cutting out some of Angie’s response, too.

****************

Hi, Sam.

Regarding Plantinga's argument -- it makes sense that he goes into all
of that, because one of people's biggest hang ups is that it seems
ridiculous for God to have created a world full of suffering if He
could have created a world without suffering. So I suspect that
saying that God can't actualize certain possible worlds because of
contradictions eventually leads to an argument inferring that He
couldn't have created a world w/o suffering (because it would somehow
contradict His nature / person). Is that what Plantinga's getting at
in his argument?

Talk soon,
Angie
