It is true that suffering and evil only become a problem (or have any meaning) if one accepts the idea of an omnipotent, personal God. Many atheists are deceived into following this logic to a denial of God's existence in hopes that it will numb the pain of the suffering and death they experience. They seem to consistently miss the corollary of removing the problem of pain, which is that they equally remove the meaning of any good they could hope to achieve with their life.
