There must be evil it's in the dictionary.
One of the five paintings of Extermination of Evil portrays Sendan Kendatsuba, one of the eight guardians of Buddhist law, banishing evil.
The failure is right at this point:
The professor of a university challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?" A student answered bravely, "Yes, he did".
The professor then asked, "If God created everything, then he created evil.
Evil is breaking the golden rule over and over again intentionally. If you continually and intentionally do things to others that you would not want done to you, you are evil.

Evil does exist. Only a man of evil will deny that evil does exist, for men who do not profit from others are not evil, and thus have nothing to lose from exposing evilness throughout the World.
Sounds like Biblical waffle to me.
I'm evil because I don't believe in your Biblical concepts of Good and Evil.
I am atheist. Yet I can recognize evil.
Are you saying some of you lost the ability to recognize evilness? It's not just a biblical concept. It's the universal concept.
Dear friend blupblup, there is wisdom in Biblical waffle,
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Several other Christian denominations were devastated, including the Baptist Church, Methodist Church, Evangelical Christian Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
The League of Militant Atheists, founded in 1929, aided the Soviet government in murdering clergy and devout believers, the documentary’s promoters note.
Along with the martyrdom of an estimated 12 million Christians, millions of Muslims and Buddhists also were killed because of their faith.
