    I think there are evil acts, not evil people. There are damaged people who perform many evil acts. I think all people have the potential to act mostly good.
    I don't think there is an absolute objective evil, nor is there anyone who goes beyond redeemable. I simply don't think we have figured out how to fix them yet.

    Evil is real, people. And it's not just something "out there." It's within all of us.

    The words of Jesus Christ:

    "For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” (Mark 7:21-23)

    "And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God." (John 3:19-21)

    Therefore, in the words of Paul the Apostle (Acts17:30-31):
    "The times of ignorance God overlooked, but know he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

    Evil is not real, people. It's not something 'out there'. It's just a word.

    The words of Nicodemus:

    "Evil is not real, people. It's not something 'out there'. It's just a word." (Nico 1:1)

    I find evil to be largely subjective

    Kind of like music and how it "rocks"

    Like some stuff rocks, but other stuff sucks, but some people disagree on what "rocks" and what sucks

    Evil is mostly the same, and we tend to agree a lot of the time on what is evil and what rocks

    Take the Beatles for example. Everyone loves the Beatles. They rock. Now look at murder or rape. Everyone thinks these things are evil. But there is so much middle ground that we are going to argue about. Like, if I could help somebody, is it evil if I don't? Some would say yes, many would say no.

    Ah, Nico 1:1 - one of the usual suspects.

    But Keyser Sose reliably informs us that the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

    Our Measure of Evil

    Most of the evil in the world is carried out by large and powerful groups against vulnerable groups.

    Genocide is our measure of evil in the modern world.

    Excuse me, dear Victor. I should have included this:

    "Believe you me, for I speak the truth." (Nico 1:2)

    Who is Keyser Soze?

    Ah yes, Nicodemus, but who is Keyser Sose? He is as charming as Nicodemus, as intelligent as Nicodemus, coming from a world far away, almost beyond our comprehension, but we trust him, he is plausible, and even more, believeable.

    But when Keyser Sose turns his back, he disappears, only to reappear in our dreams and nightmares.

    So let us put the matter to you, dear Nicodemus. Who is Keyser Soze? Why do we never see Nicodemus and Keyser Soze at the same time.

    Tell us, dear Nicodemus, who is Keyser Soze?

    Keyser Söze is the one who wrote what you read when you read what I wrote. To you, we are one; yet I have never seen him. When he speaks, I talk; yet when I speak, he remains silent.
