Accounting for Evil

Posted by Teresa at 10:40 PM
I thought this was an interested argument made by Dinesh D'Souza (as
quoted by Dennis Prager):

It is always said and it is true that believers in God have to
account for the existence evil and suffering. How does a good
God allow evil? But the atheists have to account for the existence
of human evil as well. There's absolutely no evolutionary or
Darwinian explanation for human evil. It serves no purpose.
That's why animals don't engage in evil....There's no genocide
in the animal kingdom.

What a completely nonsensical argument.

"There's absolutely no evolutionary or Darwinian explanation for human evil." - Of course there is. The evildoer usually ends up with an evolutionary advantage in terms of resources (e.g. food) and/or mates.

"That's why animals don't engage in evil....There's no genocide
in the animal kingdom." - Chimpanzee troops will wipe out other troops in competition for resources. Baboons will do similar.
