Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.
I don’t believe in the supernatural. No fucking gods or demons and devils and no angels no imaginary supernatural buggers in another realm or heavens and hell and all that crap. Makes for good stories and films but that’s all they are; fantasy and mythology.
Having said that “evil” is what we do. Us humans can be the most evil, corrupt, barbaric beings on the planet. I do not think any animals are evil, they hunt and kill for food or territory – that’s it. There is no other reason for it. Humans on the other hand can be evil bastards and motherfuckers! They hurt other humans or animals for sport and enjoyment and because it gives them a perverted sense of pleasure and ecstasy. That is pure evil. Reveling in the misfortune and pain and torture of another living being is evil. That is solely the trait of us humans and no other animal on the earth.
If we do not destroy the planet soon, maybe we can change all that. But it takes a whole lotta work and unlearning and change to do so.
