Part 1 of 4.
In my previous post titled 'Random' I posed the question, 'Why did GOD create Satan?' And I answered that HE didn't, Satan was the result of a free will independent minded personage exercising choice when empowered with the knowledge of good and evil and choosing to act out of bad faith.
Before we can address the issue on why there is evil we have to understand what is meant when we say something is evil or something is good. Since the question is about why evil exist, we shall first examine what is meant when it is said that there is evil in the world of man.
For those who hold totally to the theory of evolution the concepts of good and evil probably have no meaning. Because at the root of the theory of evolution is the theory of natural selection which has one of its fundamental frameworks the theory of survival of the fittest (or the fit, as per the latest contemporary scientific twist). What that means, for those atheists who subscribe to the very scientific theory of evolution, is that if you have the power to kick others around, exploit others, brutalize and kill others then you have the right to do so because that proves you are fitter and therefore have the evolutionary given right over all others who are inferior to you and the rest thus do not deserve to be alive or to propagate their linage except as fodder for your supremacy. These we have fully witnessed in atheists such as Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Pol pot, So for all those avowed supremely supreme Darwinian atheists who advance that religion is the root of evil and the suffering of mankind you should know what you really believe in first before boasting of your supreme righteousness, goodness and infinite wisdom. You are implicitly advancing that every power crazed tyrant, mass murderer, serial murderer and criminal have more rights to freedom and life than all the rest of law abiding mankind. And that by the way is implicitly what the global ‘justice’ system have been advancing in all the advance, developed and “civilized” nations of our world today through their doublespeak, releasing wicked unrepentant criminals back into society after a brief period of confinement during which these are placed in an environment to be conditioned and trained so that they can more effectively and elusively continue their criminal rampages once they are released. That is the ‘righteousness, justice and great unconditionally loving mercilessness’ of the supremely “enlightened” mankind. That is the net effect of this global “enlightenment” a worldwide population of “enlightened” humankind who do not hesitate to lie, cheat, steal, rob, rape and murder if there is an even chance that they can do so without getting caught andor having to face the consequences of such acts.
Now whether evolutionary scientists want to believe it or not, both the theories of natural selection and that of the survival of the fittest have many issues of ambiguity. Since it is not the topic of this title we will not go any further than here which is just my intention of highlighting that there are missing areas of consideration by those who have totally advocated that evolution is the natural order of life on this earth and by extension in the whole of the material universe. This is equally the case with most who wrote their thoughts discussing this issue of evil.
What is Good and What is Evil?
Is good the absence of evil or is evil the absence of good? Sounds quite interesting that question but it also sounds quite ridiculous.
Since it sounds ridiculous we won't touch it lest we too sound ridiculous. What then is evil aside to comparing it with good? This is not to say that measuring evil against good is ridiculous but that question of whether evil is the absence of good. In my considered opinion whatever that is worth, it would be wiser to look at the issue being addressed rather than to drag in another concept that is not absolutely relevant to answering the question being asked. The concept of what constitutes evil can be independently evaluated without comparing it with the concept of what constitutes good.
Here are some examples of others ridiculous questions and statements:
General Views of What is Evil.
For the discussion of the meaning in the word of the original text where the Holy Scriptures recorded all the names and words to denote the GOD of the Holy Scriptures and also what are the concepts carried in the words, ‘omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresence’ please read the post ‘GOD’ in the blog ‘The Scripture Of Truth’.
For a more complete discussion on the Liar's Paradox and the GOD Paradox please read the post Idle Minds And Twisted Logic.
For a more detail discussion of this component of the Spirit–mind please read the chapter ‘GOD IS’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded.’
