    By its generally accepted definition, yes I do believe that evil exists - and that any human is capable of evil.

    But, I do not believe that evil is any related to any sort of spiritual party - basically, I do not believe in the devil.

    I also do not personally define 'evil' by religious definition, e.g. 'sin'. There are good and bad, and every living person is capable of doing both.

    Man has always the free will to do bad and good, but when man chooses evil, he/ she is deviating from the common sense, from the human nature and morality... Evil is what we create not what hits us... Why do we have Hitler and at the same time we Ghandi for instance? They both chose and decided...

    The NightStalker, Richard Ramirez, was evil.  He was compelled to do evil.  I frightens me to think that there are people in this world who are compelled to hurt people.

    ok, is that evil or just the absense of goodness?
    is there any one who own the hell and tries to steel the souls from earth and heaven

    the old question again!
    if there is an evil, who created it? God
    then God too have an evil side in him.

      .. and who created god would seem a fair question. Also a good explanation of how Adam and Eve's children got to populate without incest etc.

                    That is because of the unions in this country.  People make too much money here.

    Evil really exists. If it didn't the world would have been a better place but we must agree that we are largely responsible for it by allowing our greed overshadow our conscience.
