    I'm having trouble understanding the strength of the moral argument, that goes, if we can say that something is evil, then evil must exist objectively, and it is not an opinion. Yet, people who say this will often differ in what they think is actually evil, suggesting that it really is a perception or opinion and not an ingrained sense of morality stemming from the biblical creator, else people would not define things as evil from the get go that imagine justice differently from what is defined in Christianity. If people had the same definition of good and evil ingrained in them at birth that is not largely a social construct, then they should reflect the entire Christian definition of it without any question or variation. Often times, people are so critical of how the bible views good and evil, then how can we say we have the Christian view of it inborn into us?

    Evil cannot sustain itself from Truth, Love, and Faith; or else it would no longer be evil. So it has to sustain itself from another source not related to truth, love and faith. Ideally, that would be, deception, hate, and doubt. In other words _ fear. Evil sows fear to feed of the wasted energy of the fearful. The fearful, those in stress, are wasting away their life energy, and the evil feeds of this.

    A simple example is seen by those that gloat. They get energized by others fears and misfortunes. Or people who put others down to feel better about themselves. There are hundreds of different ways that evil operates to gain energy.

    Everybody knows that evil is fear-based. Unfortunately, this world is still largely fear-based. Still run by the d-evil.
