Evil is alive and well and thriving on the planet earth.
Be glad you're *ignorant of the above truth.
*Ignorant is not an insult, but a definition.

Ignorance is not evil. All babies are born ignorant, does that mean they are evil? From ignorance comes knowledge. One can not learn unless they are first ignorant.

I have often considered that whatever a person does at the very instant they do it they consider it the 'right' thing to do under the circumstances.
I you were to intentionally shoot and kill someone, a nanosecond later you may regret it, but as you were pulling the trigger, no, it was the 'right' thing to do.

Not one of you can say "evil is real" because there is no concrete definition of just what acts are considered evil.
Some people considered certain acts evil, while others think those same acts are beautiful. Vice versa. It's always subjective, and if it always is subjective: who is right?

I beg to differ.
Evil is in fact personified in many a human...
To say otherwise is to deny that every human has a dark side. ...and some lose control of that dark side.
