The Problem by Albert Camus happens in an Algerian city known as Oran. Rats that are attacked with a vicious disease known as "the plague" invade the town and practically wipe out half the population. This kind of disease uses a toll for the citizens of Oran, which will make them start each other and for some, that they question the presence of God. Religious beliefs plays a massive roll in The Plague and Camus echoes through his characters and incorporates his views on religion. Camus uses Father Paneloux, the priest in the city, to argue regardless of whether God accounts for00 this chaos.
Camus's huge philosophy was the absurd and one's existence is obviously. It is all-natural for human beings to seek the meaning behind life and many sometimes turn to religion to answer that question.

He relates that to how humans are constantly asking yourself the meaning of life to only see that all their answers is going to lead to an additional question.

When we die, we will experience "feel, taste, contact, and smell—the joys of the bodies and physical world" (Absurdism). When one concerns the decision that there is no hope for an following life, then everyone will be able to live life as they are supposed to and fully experience life's true adventures.

A persons quest for purpose is common to assume that almost everything must have an objective, a higher cause of existence. Paneloux is an important physique that Camus uses to aid one accept the inescapable and what he has been trying to clarify throughout the new.
