    God's sadistic impulse to dominate and abuse something with just enough free will for God to perceive it as separate from himself but not enough to enact its will at all especially if its will is to not be abused and dominated by God.

    European genes

    It's hard to understand the psychology.
    Maybe europeans take joy in inflicting suffering on others cause they confuse it for strength, but i dont find this to be an entirely satisfying explanation.

    Agreed. A weak man cries about the strong man keeping him down. Weakness hallucinates evil. The strong understand that it is nature and accepts it.

    Greed
    Selfishness

    And a desire to control, shape, and dominate reality

    >lust
    >pride
    >sloth
    >wroth
    I would say sloth is the biggest sin. It is often said pride outshines them all, ironically. People often rail against greed. Wroth causes a lot of trouble. Each sin is a pitfall, however sloth has the most effect relative to how easy it is to resist. If the good were even a percentile less slothful, evil would be forced back into the shadows. It takes surprisingly little effort to defeat evil. Evil likes power, but becoming stronger than someone else takes effort, which is where they fall short.

    Evil fights wars with a quick burst of disorganized impulsive violence to get what they want, eventually though the good, assuming they survived, have an inherent advantage. Someone motivated by a good cause will run the extra mile, spend more money, do things they otherwise would not, study, learn, try to find an edge over their opponent, because for them it is a sacrifice, one they accept. When sufficiently motivated, good is stronger than evil, evil is a glory seeking amateur, good becomes a professional. but only if good is motivated. When good becomes complacent and slothful, evil wins.

      >evil is when benefit is tangible and/or immediate
      >good is when benefit is intangible and/or delayed
      I'm not saying that I disagree with the framework, but if this is what it can be boiled down to it's no wonder there's far more evil (per this definition) in the world. It's basically a guarantee that if all that is inherent is "bad" then it will dominate "good".

          I don't believe I'm equipped to make that determination with any degree of certainty.
          >morality if so what exist?
          Morality is a construct that we use to categorize behaviors and beliefs. Your morality is almost entirely dependent on your frame of reference, which is dictated by your environment and experiences. There are a few universal inclinations that undoubtedly influence macro and micro developments of morality.

      Definitions
      Evil
      A broad concept of evil defines it as any and all pain and suffering,[11] yet this definition quickly becomes problematic. Marcus Singer says that a usable definition of evil must be based on the knowledge that: "If something is really evil, it can't be necessary, and if it is really necessary, it can't be evil".[12]:186 According to John Kemp, evil cannot be correctly understood on "a simple hedonic scale on which pleasure appears as a plus, and pain as a minus".[13][11] The National Institute of Medicine says pain is essential for survival: "Without pain, the world would be an impossibly dangerous place".[14][15]

      While many of the arguments against an omni-God are based on the broadest definition of evil, "most contemporary philosophers interested in the nature of evil are primarily concerned with evil in a narrower sense".[16] The narrow concept of evil involves moral condemnation, and is applicable only to moral agents capable of making independent decisions, and their actions; it allows for the existence of some pain and suffering without identifying it as evil.[17]:322 Christianity is based on "the salvific value of suffering".[18]

      Philosopher Eve Garrard suggests that the term evil cannot be used to describe ordinary wrongdoing, because "there is a qualitative and not merely a quantitative difference between evil acts and other wrongful ones; evil acts are not just very bad or wrongful acts, but rather ones possessing some specially horrific quality".[17]:321 Calder argues that evil must involve the attempt or desire to inflict significant harm on the victim without moral justification.[11]

    Evil is ultimately going against the will of God, so the answer is free will.

    I love the wikipedia definition of evil, actually. It defines evil using moral realism (which states that there are moral facts (ex: This is right/That is wrong)) and it also incorporates hedonism, which is a profoundly correct philosophy. To quote Shakespeare, "There was never yet a philosopher that could endure the toothache patiently". Sure, the guy who has meditated for 40 years can set himself on fire and stay sitting, but that's not philosophy — that's training your brain. Anyway here's wikipedia's (correct) definition of evil:

    >Evil, or being bad, in a general sense, is acting out morally incorrect behavior, or the condition of causing *unnecessary pain and suffering*, thus, containing a net negative on the world.

    I personally don't know the difference between pain and suffering, but the definition is still good enough in my book even though "pain and suffering" is redundant.

      Pain is pain, suffering is the mental anguish that comes with pain.

    greed
    in animals it is a valuable trait for survival, but in settled urban societies it creates conflict in people when faced with inherrent inequalities in personal ability or stockpiled familial wealth (resulting from a series of ancestors with superior personal ability)
