while theres no good or evil, there is a right and wrong. is someone evil because of their actions, which are wrong, but are caused by survival (or perceived survival) instincts or defenses, or because of a mental or emotional disorder? right and wrong only exist as human fabrications which are for the most part important for people to live together collectively, a survival mechanism. it is a unique evolutionary gift
good and evil are also distinctly human abstract concepts. however, they serve no evolutionary purpose other than to be used as tools for breeding hatred and prejudice for one another. tho, prejudice itself is a survival tactic – you need to be able to quickly size up ‘the other’ and determine if they are friend or foe and how much of a threat they are to your survival, be it through violence or disease. but, this is quite different from the concept of evil. to put oneself in another’s shoes is a difficult task, especially if that persons concept of right and wrong are different from yours. so we label them as good or evil
