One of the questions that has been burning in my mind for some time now is, is evil an external fact or does it arise strictly
from within the human heart?
Many religions teach us that evil entered the world with fallen angels or other supernatural beings who brought it to
us. They teach that these beings influence people to commit evil acts, but generally speaking, people are intrinsically harmless
and benevolent unless otherwise influenced.
Others believe that people are quite capable of being evil and commiting evil acts, without any supernatural assistance.
On this page, we seek to discover which of these options is true: is evil an external fact visited upon us, or is it a
part of human nature that we reject and then project onto "devils" and other external beings?
What do you think? Where does evil come from, ultimately? Join us in a discussion of this topic on the Seventh Moon Discussion
