Evil existed before humans existed therefore humans are not the creators of evil.
Giving a name to something does not mean creating it...
Good and Evil are real active forces not merely perceptional illusions.
Fear and ignorance are products of evil.
No we are not the masters of the universe as many would like to believe...
Evil is a pro-active force that violently opposes Good, not merely the absence of Good.
If it was simply the absence of good in the same way shadow is perceived to be the absence of light, it could easily be extinguished by Goodness, just as shadow is extinguished by light.
Nor is it a passive force.
Evil attacks Good overtly and often via stealth.
Evil is a destructive force where as Good is a creative force.
Good creates without the need for evil. Good doesn't need evil to exist.
Evil needs something to destroy. It needs Good for its existence.
Just as a parasite needs a host.
If there is no host to destroy, the only thing left to destroy is itself.

Those are excellent points!
There is a insightful, channeled book, currently out of print but still available, that you and others here might want to look into. It is called The Challenge of Evil.
