The question after millennia of pondering still remains what about evil More so in the modern era people have been questioning about whether there is a clear definition of evil or not It is difficult to determine where one can draw the fine line that divides evil from non-evil In this article Ron Rosenbaum attempts to answer the questions of what people consider to be evil and why does God if He exists allow for so many catastrophes to occur With so many different kinds of people each with their own ideas it is difficult to say that there lies a bridge leading back to a universal view of evil but instead it can be said that everyone has his own perspective on the definition of evil and the religious beliefs that follow it or lack thereof Rosenbaum witnesses many ways people deal with devastation and explores their logic In writing the article Rosenbaum seems to assume that evil does exist in one way or another it was the question of how is it defined that the article helps to answer He delves into the problem of choosing between evil and misled where a distinguished Hitler scholar could not bring himself to pronounce Hitler consciously knowingly evil However in an event of a murder of a 2-year-old boy by two 10-year-old Liverpool boys the newspapers did not hesitate to call it UNPARALLELED EVIL And there Rosenbaum states herein lies the problem of defining evil where 10-year-old boys can be pronounced evil wicked to the highest degree but not Hitler Furthermore still extant is the mental illness excuse Most people agree that Jeffrey Dahmer is undoubtedly insane however it is uncertain whether that mere fact should spare him the proper consequences of cold-blooded murders or not For someone so sick so convoluted the issue becomes somewhat questionable Conversely the general public did not hesitate to call the people who were selling Jeffrey Dahmer trading cards repulsive
