I think you misinterpreted my example. An atheist may say, "Hey, theist, if there is a god, why is there evil, etc. Huh?" and that's when the theist responds with the free will argument, or goes there by herself to understand why a tri-omni god would allow, say, the Holocaust. The other refuge is the mysterious ways one, of course.
