About the level of contribution I'd expect from you. Well done, you didn't let me down.

Maybe I'm thinking of real evil as requiring a high level of sadism. But then again, evil is not synonymous with cruelty, so I'm not sure how I'd say what evil is to me.

Like I said, I rarely use the word about anything real-world applicable. I guess I think of "evil" as more of a cackling movie villain thing, as well as a thing that's often closely tied to religious descriptions of the world.
Thanks for taking this seriously.

I've plenty to say about this, but hell, if nobody else is going to take it seriously I'm not bothering. I guess I'll see who, if anyone, actually tries to have a conversation/debate here instead of just making stupid jokes, as seems to be the norm. Why did I even bother to stay, I ask myself?

It's just kind of surface level and is already heavily treaded ground imo.

This thread has all of three "real responses" in it unless we move it to a religious forum, so who ****ing cares?

To be fair, it's a complex subject if anyone's really going to try and say something meaningful.
I can't wrap my head around philosophy and psychology right now - or even that well in general.

There's good discussion about music often enough. Other subjects are hit and miss

Evil is a relative concept. That's really the most I'll say about it.

Troll, the name you picked for the thread was a stupid name if you wanted people to take it seriously. No one is going to take it seriously when there is a comedic character like Dr. Evil in existence.

The idea of evil through history is an interesting enough subject, but I don't feel like I've got much to say about it. I've never sat down and actually read a book about it, but I imagine a good one could be written by some historian, philosopher, theologian or anthropologist author. There's probably several good ones out there already.

Can't imagine anything good being written by a theologian.

I think religious ideas can be very interesting if taken from more of a history/philosophy perspective. I'm an atheist through and through, but I like it as a topic - and not just to debunk it. Religion has had an insurmountably huge impact on human civilization throughout history. Even from the pen of a theologian, there can be a great deal of value said if you want to understand religion and religious people - which is arguably to understand humans to a large extent.

evil is mostly a product of environment

but then there are select cases of people committing evil for no discernible reason, sadists, psychopaths

can we consider those treatable mental illness though

a country like Norway considers all criminals as candidates for rehabilitation even serial killers

I think the US is more tied to a religious view of evil, some people are just bad apples
