To atheists & other freethinkers, what makes some people believe in that there's a devil? Is it


innate in the human consciousness, mindset, & psychology that there has to be a displacement &/or a projection of the scapegoat & the other instead of facing the more negative aspects of one's consciousness & taking responsibility for it?

    I never thought of it that way, but it makes sense. I read Joseph Campbells book, Power of the Myth and it did mention something like that.

    How can one recognize something as good if one has never experienced evil? How is one recognized as good and another as bad? Because both good and evil exists and you can compare the two..
