Evil to me is live backwards.. an unentintentional acronym.
Evil is when you do not follow the laws of consciousness and put false faith in destruction, lies, thievery, as a way out of delema.
If you believe in evil you will attract it. If you believe in satin you will create him. We are powerful creators of our reality. I know someone who believes in evil as an outside force and in satin. She sees it everywhere. I do not experience it nor have I seen satin. Thats her reality and mine is mine.
I do see people who do not live with ethics, compassion nor love and they use the tools of deception to get their selfish ways.
I wonder if athiests believe that they are responsible for creating their reality.
