So many people like to throw around the words “good” and “evil”. There really is very little that is black or white in that department. Mostly, “Evil” is just “What I perceive as not good from my point of view.”

Nature doesn’t have good and evil. It doesn’t exist. Things are what they are because they need to be that way. One thing that always irks me is people saying that eating meat is evil. Does that mean most animals are evil? Nope. Anyway, we’re omnivores, not herbivores, it’s natural to kill things and eat them. One could say that ripping poor, defenseless plants from the earth and eating them is evil. It’s not though, it’s just natural.

Even some things we think of as absolute aren’t. “Killing is evil!!” Really? So when someone is coming at you with a knife wanting to rape you or pointing a gun at you intending to kill you, it’s evil to kill them? You should just let them rape or kill you? What’s more evil? What if someone is beating a child to death in front of you? Don’t tell me we’re supposed to give them a time-out for bad behavior.

So much in the world is gray rather than black or white. People need to learn that. Nearly everything is a matter of perspective.
