But then, from whence do you derive a definition or even a rationale for ‘evil’?
As I indicated, I believe that God allowed evil to come forth from the human mind as it developed to abstract information from its environment. As nurture advanced so did its opposite. Yet only the human being can summon evil forth. An animal might be vicious, yet that comes through a survival mechanism or has been so taught or conditioned (as again by a human directing it´s own malevolence through the animal). Otherwise non-human activity might be characterized as violent, but cannot be evil. Only human will - as implanted by God - makes it so.
