Why is there evil in the world? Why do people do bad things? Lie? Cheat? Steal? Kill? You would think people wouldn’t want bad things to happen to them so they would avoid committing such atrocities, but it still happens. As if that should be enough of a deterrent, but it isn’t. I can understand the inherent will to “do good” doesn’t exist in everyone just like the inherent will to “do evil” doesn’t. …unless you’re like the spawn of Satan haha. I believe that all mannerisms are taught or learned, but they can be augmented in our minds because of how they make us react to the outcomes. Good outcomes, we gravitate towards increasing the frequency of and bad outcomes are undesirable and we seek to avoid.
Oh observant eyes of mine, help me to understand.
