I've worked with mentally ill people most of my adult life. I've been around everything from the innocent down syndrome person, to the clinically insane and all points between. I understand that some people are crazy and suffer from extreme mental illness. Notwithstanding this, I have seen clear evil and seen it inside people. Undeniable and no other viable explanation. It's like seeing a dead body, you can just sense their spirit is not there anymore. A sixth sense thing. Well when someone is downright evil, you just know it. I have seen and heard things coming from a few people that were unexplainable. Evil s real. Whether it's demonic in nature, is up for debate, but it is real.

To play the devil's advocate here, how can you be sure that what you're seeing isn't a person who has damage to the area of the brain that controls moral judgment?


How do you know that what you are perceiving in that particular person isn't colored by something about you and your experiences?

Just because someone says what you want to hear does not mean they are more intelligent than other people.

Perhaps one of you could clarify what evil really is?

I, too, retired from working in the mental health field and wrestled with this question all my working life. (Well, I had it all figured out when I started. By the time I had retired I had seen a lot of contradictions!)


I worked with people who had done unspeakably evil things but ultimately determined they were not, themselves, evil personified.


There were others about whom I was unsure. That always disturbed me from a scientific and professional standpoint.


I'd be interested in knowing auntieannie68, how you differentiate illness from evil from a scientific/therapeutic viewpoint.

Excellent point Mark S., I know some people dislike beets but I personally love them. I roast them whole and serve with green, goat cheese and walnuts. I find them to be delicious.

I even find the canned beets to have their place.

I think you may need an exorcist.

Just the smell of canned beets hits my gag reflex. In fact, just thinking of the smell, I'm getting a little nauseous.

"An old Ukrainian proverb warns, 'A tale that begins with a beet will end with the devil.'

That is a risk we have to take."
