It seems that there is evil in the world, but why? What bad men have done is to let their evil grow like a noxious weed too large and their good too little, whereas good men have cultivated a high proportion of goodness. There is no absolute evil. It is truer to talk of absolute good for that is there first. Why? Because God is there first. Men came later and broke the divine laws little by little. They created their own evil consequences. Or for different reasons they harm others and have later to suffer for˙it.
