What is evil? Where does it come from? This concept has plagued the mind of humanity for thousands of years; driving people to madness and despair. Most people today think of Satan in connection with the word evil, so let's start with its religious origin and break it down from there. Christianity has helped formulate this concept of evil. What is evil to a Christian? Evil is that which is of the flesh, that is to say, carnality, greed, pride, egoism, etc. What is good? All that which opposes the flesh and worldliness, e.g., spirituality, heaven, self-denial, loving one's enemies, humility, submissiveness, etc.

So, in essence, that which is good according to religio-morality is that which is anti-nature; it opposes worldliness and the flesh. This system of morals is that of a slave or a weakling. And it emanates from resentment of the mighty ones. Judeo-Christian morals are the inverse of Roman master morals of strength and weakness, bravery and cowardice. The weakling is aware of his inferiority juxtaposed with the mighty ones that rule over him, thus he seeks to diminish their grandiosity via an other-worldy mean, that is to say, via a God - an imaginary alpha-male figure that is " greater " than the real alpha-male the rules on Earth. The weakling imagines that his God is the king of kings, and projects his nature onto his imaginary deity as transcendental virtues that all should strive after. This is just a form of the will to power, albeit a feminine one; the coward becomes submissive to his own God in the attempt to become subsumed within it, to become one with it, thus becoming part of its power. The nature of the Earthly, more real kings are demonized. Is it not often stated by Christians that Satan is the ruler of the Earth? Master virtuisms become vices. This brings me to my next dissection: Demons.

Demons are depicted as other worldly, spiritual entities that are hostile and cruel in nature. They are shown as having fierce eyes, sharp teeth, claws, etc. Where does this emanate from? This concept of demons is a perversion of the predatory animals that roam the Earth.






This natural fear of worldly predators was made into an other-worldy abstraction.


So we have discovered that this concept of evil is characterized by a reversal of master virtuisms due to resentment, and that the concept of demons is a perversion of Earthly predators. Nothing more needs to be stated.

A very succinct and cutting explanation of Christian morality, to say the least. Another major aspect of Christianity is its feminine apprehension of divinity. Among the high churches, you'll see a bunch of talk about "mystery", about how the "grace" of God is "supra-rational" and incomprehensible to human beings. But this merely stems from a general lack of mental power (intelligence); it's not that the fundamental or divine aspects of reality defy logic, it's just that lower minds (such as the Christian) simply lack this aforementioned mental power to comprehend the more abstract and fundamental aspects of being, much in the same way that maths and other human concepts cannot be grasped by beasts. Divinity is thus always perceived as an Other that is higher than the subject in question. What's worse is that slave religions such as Christianity make out this state to be a virtue to be exalted above actual understanding and de-mystification of "mysteries"; this is exemplified in the story of Genesis. Christian spirituality leads to the womb of innocence and unawareness, whilst Paganism leads Man himself to the Heavens above so he may overcome himself and become God.

Edit: in my last statement, I do not mean "Heavens" in the sense of an imagined other-realm to be nihilistically juxtaposed against this world; I use the term to figuratively mean higher states of awareness and comprehension of this world we live in, a greater, more vivid grasp of the extremes of Nature.

This also explains why Catholics place such a high emphasis on venerating Mary the mother of Christ to the point where it seems as if they believe she is superior to the son. Basically, feminine Goddess worship. Reminds me of clueless beta-males that don't understand female psychology, thus assisting in the theory of the feminine mystique. These types when they do manage to acquire a girlfriend, end up, symbolically, worshiping their girlfriends; they become subservient - giving in to their mysterious feminine goddesses ( girlfriends ) that dictate their behavior.

Indeed, as a female, Mary is perhaps the Christian par excellence, that is, a mere vessel for a higher power to impregnate and thus manifest itself from, a vessel that does not understand nor grasp that which it submits itself to. Christianity is a spiritual feminization cult.

Exactly; there is nothing manly about weeping in feminine submissiveness to an imaginary alpha-male/female. The emasculating nature of Christianity can reach literal extremes, e.g., Eunuchs. Christianity is in direct opposition to manliness.

From "The Beauty of the Infinite: The Aesthetics of Christian Truth"... some book I randomly stumbled upon googling terms with Nietzsche.

Within Ancient Christianity there's more of a Ying and Yang flavor to it all. The good is dependent upon the evil and vice versa. The peasants misinterpreted the whole thing, and we got stuck with this stuff. The main difference between now and the ancient era is the notion of time, and how it works. They believed in time moving in a cyclical fashion, we have a linear notion. If you wish to understand what evil is, and what peoples thoughts about it have been, then look at the different mythologies over the times. A lot of today's mythology has to with the last and eternal stage of existence, what it will consist of - oblivion or paradise. Thus the conflict is extremely black and white, with the ultimate good and ultimate evil. This is an obvious effect of linear notions of time, anxiety over eternal nothingness.
