      I've always thought it was evil to see evil. There is good and bad in everything.

        Truth is in degrees. Evil is the absence of reason. To a high degree, I agree with gmw

        Only Federal politician are more evil.

          I don't believe in an absence of reason. It's simply an absence of reason you understand.

            Everything has reason. If I can explain anything I do with honesty and no harm, there is no evidence of evil

            If they can't explain what they do honesty and without harm.

            That is evil without reason to what most should be able to understand.

      “With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”

    … because it cannot be used to explain science. If it can, it is legitimate and not evil ...
    at all.

      Science is something you don't worship and offer your entire soul.

      It's more like a branch in a tree of life. Or tool of the mind or eyes for observation.
