When you deny the existence of God, you effectively deny the existence of evil. Evil becomes a word that describes an action or event perpetrated by a sentient being.

I think man is more than capable of working evil without any outside help. Not that throwing the evolutionary-blanket over it qualifies as an explanation for its existence [in my mind at least]. Evil, in large part, is a consequence of man choosing evil over good. Of course, this begs the question of why he would choose good at all, if Darwin was right.

You asked me if I’ve ever "seen evil". This is an interesting question. Have I ever seen good? How could I know one and not know the other?

At any rate, the dillemma from your position is, what do you do with evil? If evil has no existential nature, then why not call it orange or blue?
