Everyone is taught these things. Nobody who doesn't know them is held accountable. You wouldn't prosecute a toddler for accidentally taking
something from a store without anyone noticing until the cashier saw it, would you? I wouldn't, personally. I would probably say "Excuse me, sweetie,
I'm going to have to take that. You can't have it unless you pay for it." ...But that's just me.
Such a situation would never arise if "we are all born with the knowledge of good and evil". Children don't see in terms of good and evil, because
they are not emotionally developed. "Good" and "evil" are emotional labels designed to define how we feel about ideas, more than the ideas themselves.
Children aren't as reflective as adults, so they don't see things that way. They react to sheer positive and sheer negative, that's about it. You
know, the obvious stuff. Everything else is simply them acting according to nature. No good or evil involved.
As a result, it would be logical for "God" to control his little pet, but apparently he can't be bothered to do so. Since he is the creator, and he is
the master of all, he should be held accountable for the actions of his creations. If he had never existed, if he had never decided to create "Satan",
none of these things blamed on the devil would ever have happened, right? Therefore, he is at fault. If the gun kills an innocent person, you look to
the soldier controlling it. The gun is merely a tool, functioning as it was designed to function. The soldier make the decision, or made the mistake,
and should be held accountable. This is inarguable.
As such, "blame the devil" is a cop out. It's much easier to imagine a mysterious purpose than to think we are at the mercy of chaos. Our perception
is far too limited to see how chaos is shaped by order, so we invent an order that drives the seeming chaos. We have created our own order because we
believe there is no other order. And meanwhile, the true order remains ignored by a species too clumsy to seduce it into revealing its secrets.
In this way, we have proven ourselves unworthy. Not that we will always be unworthy, but worthiness is a difficult position to attain, and few
consider it worthwhile. Unfortunately.
