    What is evil?
    Evil is the last unknown element, missing from the periodic table. It is the stuff of which black holes are comprised of. Taco Bell puts this in their fire sauce.

    How evil can it be?
    Evil in it's pure form has never been found, though it is theorized that if you put take padfoots and shoot them into each other at 1k miles/hr, the thing which is left will be pretty close.

    Is there a limit to evil ?
    Yes. Evil is an exhaustible resource. It shall run our cars for about 300 years, and then we shall have to turn to alternative fuel sources.

    Should evil be tolerated?
    What do you intend to do about it? Fight evil through the legal system? (snicker)

    Is evil in the eye of the beholder?
    If they have an "evil eye".

    Is there a standard for evil?
    Yes. You can find it in your typical stock publication, right below gold.

    Is one mans evil another mans goodness?
    Yes. As way of example I offer Mickey Mouse, beer, Dennys and women.

    Evil is wherever Good is not. It is analogous to darkness. Darkness is just an abscence of light. Should be tolerated. Is in the eye of the beholder. However there is a standard form of evil, that is objective. One mans evil is another persons goodness, true (lots of poeple have different opinions on suicide, homosexuality, abotion/euthanasia etc).

    If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gives it too!

    My favorite reasoning for the root of all evil...mathematically proven (heard from a friend):

    Girls = Time x Money
    Time = Money
    Girls = Money x Money (or Money Squared)
    Money is the root of all evil
    Girls = the square root of evil squared
    Girls = Evil...but girls are lovely anyway

    evil is a matter of perspective
    say i shoot a man dead in cold blood
    was that an evil act?? it depends on the motive
    if i shot him to rob him or because i hated him for no reason
    yes i would think it was evil
    if i shot him to protect an innocent he was trying to rape or rob
    then it was good
    if i shot him because he killed my father
    then it is a big grey area
    in short the answer is evil exists because good exists
    help wipe out good
    thanks

    First of all, 'evil' is nothing more than a word, and can be defined as anyone wants to define it.

    As it's typically used, evil is a feeling that people have; a judgement that they make about actions and other things. It is something that they feel to be undesireable and which runs contrary to other feelings of compassion, fairness, etc.

    Evil's magnitude is limited only by the ability of people to judge things as evil.

    Should it be tolerated? Well, it can't really be eliminated. Different people think different things are evil. If you're referring to what an individual feels is evil, that individual should do what he can to minimize those things that he judges to be evil. However there is so much evil in most peoples' judgement that it's unreasonable to expect them to be totally intolerant of it's existence.

    Evil is that which causes harm in relation to the greater good.

    Example: Vaccines cause a small amount of pain to prevent a horrible disease.

    Empathy and common sense can help us to distinguish good from evil.

    Peace.

    So many questions - so few brain cells for the questioner to store the answers in...

    ...so little motivation to answer the many questions.
