This is going to be hard to put out all at once. I have been thinking a lot about evil. What is it and does it exist? If it does exist then where
did Evil come from? I am going to start with the presumption that god exists. Whether you believe in the Christian god, a muslim god, hindu god(s) or
any of the numerous other gods out there (or if you believe that all of these were the same god) in order to believe in evil you must believe in one
of these. Why? Because if you believe in evolution the concept of evil doesn't really exist. In evolutionary theory evil would have formed because
being evil will help you survive and procreate and thus would actually be a good thing as far as survival of the fittest (of course that would only be
to a point because a truly evil society would turn on and destroy itself ) Maybe that is the path we are on right now? But is that evil? You could
also adhere to the ancient alien theory. The theory that we were created and/or influenced by aliens who we then deified. This again does not lead
to a conclusion that evil does in fact exist. I may elaborate on how neither Darwinism or ancient alien creationism leads to the conclusion that evil
does or ever has existed.
I guess the best place to start is with Lucifer. Lucifer was originally the "Morning Star". Wasn't he supposed to be one of God's favorite
angels? One of God's creations... I am of the belief that god loves all of his creations. Therefore, he would have had great love for Lucifer. Of
course Lucifer tried to overthrow god. Does that make him evil? Don't many children rebel against their parents? Does that make them evil?
Obviously the answer is no. So does Lucifer leading a revolt against his father mean that he is evil? Isn't god supposed to know everything? That
is what all knowing means right? Therefore didn't god know that Lucifer was going to rebel? Did god plan the rebellion? If god is not evil and
planned the rebellion does that not mean that the rebellion was not evil? In fact if you think about it logically god was basically rebelling against
So what other evils has Lucifer or Satan committed? Well god created humans. He put them in the garden of Eden. Yet he did not give us knowledge.
So we were these mindless animals basically kind of like a bunch of Forest Gumps running around the garden. Then we were led to eat from the tree of
knowledge. Who led us there? Was that of an evil purpose? Was allowing us to have knowledge evil? If we were God's children and he created us in
his image then wasn't his plan for us to eventually have the gift of knowledge? Some would say he was our liberator, the one who gave us logic,
science, free will... That does not seem very evil to me.
Oh I see... maybe he was evil because we would have had easygoing comfortable lives? and we lost an easy life of mindless slavery for a life of hard
work because of him. No that must not be it. So what makes Lucifer EVIL? What has he done that is so horrendous?
He tempted Christ. Maybe that was his EVIL action? I guess I need to research that a little. I will be back later.
