  1. God based the world on the principle of complete freedom of human choice. That is, he made a choice in the direction of destroying the world. So there was a potential for evil. We have awakened this evil, nurtured it and strengthened it, and now we are dealing with it ourselves. But when the period of free training of people ends, God will destroy evil and save all people

    Good and evil are concepts that gain objective meaning only if the world is meaningful and has a purpose.

    If all that is observed is an accident, then the mosquito has the same right to life as we do. Or rather, we have no rights equally, we are equally worthless.

    The meaning of the world, the meaning of existence, except for each person is decided by religious and philosophical systems. They can be very different.

    For example: wikipedia.org

    ——–

    “Forty-two!” Lunkquool shrieked. — Is that all you can say after seven and a half million years of work?”

    “I've checked everything very carefully,” the computer said, ” and I can say with certainty that this is the answer. I think, if I'm being completely honest with you, the whole point is that you didn't know what the question was.

    — But that's a great question! The ultimate question of life, the universe, and all that! Lunkquool almost howled.

    “Yes,” the computer said in the voice of a sufferer enlightening a fool. — What kind of question is that?”

  3. My answer is that evil in the absolute (metaphysical sense) has neither a root cause nor a cause.

    We can only talk about the causes of specific phenomena (for example, a person was poorly brought up and became a criminal). But we won't get to the root cause: “raising children should start with raising their parents,” which refers us to the next parents, to that long series of parents that leads us to Adam or amoeba, and then either to God or to stardust, and here we are already lost in guesswork 🙂

    In short, if we raise the question of the fundamental cause of evil (or good), then nothing can be said here, value categories such as good and evil cannot be rationally investigated and integrated into the causal chain either by the first or second number.

    So it is better to connect the question of the origin of evil not with the cause or root cause of evil, but with the nature of the values themselves, which are behind the use of words such as good and evil. What do we mean by these words?

    It is obvious that we understand a good deed as free, and not committed under compulsion. To do a good deed, you must be able to AVOID doing it. No one will consider a good deed that a person did not do of his own free will.

    So the nature of evil is sewn into the nature of good. If evil (as a deviation from the ideal of good) is impossible, then the ideal of good loses all meaning and ceases to be recognized as a value.

  1. “What is the root cause of evil in our world?” – a Zen master will answer you by mirroring the agitation of the mind, because the essence of your question is an illusion. In our universe, there is no single answer to this question. However, you can use an analogy to answer this question. The best answer, in my opinion, is the analogy of light and darkness. We all know perfectly well what light is and where it comes from. And what is darkness? Obviously, this is the absence of light. There is no such lamp that will give a dark ray in a bright room. Therefore, evil appears only where there is no good, just as darkness appears where there is no light. When we talk about a person, we can identify the following paradigm: light-awareness-good, darkness – unconsciousness-evil.

  2. If you take a single individual, then he is infected from society with evil and similar programs even (according to some sources) a year before conception…at most and in the womb at least…

  4. “Evil” is a very, very vague concept. I'm afraid that your question cannot be answered unambiguously. So if you want an answer to the question, first tell us specifically what is evil for you. Well, after that, it will be very easy to find the root cause.
