I am not saying evil is good, or there is no such a thing as evil or/and good and etc.

What I am saying is EXISTENCE OF EVIL IS GOOD.

First round is for acceptance.

There are many things which ascribed as evil. I will divide it into two categories -Natural Phenomenon, and Human action.

First, natural phenomenon, atheists sometimes use tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes, and etc as proof for evil and so proof for God doesn't exist. Regardless of whether God exists or not, describing natural happenings as evil is scientific illiteracy. Because those happenings is what keeps Earth 'alive' and habitable. So, they are good.

Second, human actions, I will touch on two things which are always said to be evil - murder, and rape.
Murder, the result of murder is death, so logically for murder not to exist, death shouldn't exist. But actually non-existence of death would be an evil. We need death, because our food, water, energy, and etc supply is limited. One can argue, there should be more deaths to keep supplies balanced.

Rape is common factor among mammals, as homosexuality is. So, if one regards as not being immoral, therefore rape is not immoral, and by extension is not evil. And in order for rape not to exist, sexual intercourse shouldn't exist. But we need sexual intercourse for reproduction as species.

Thank you for reading. It is my introductory argument.

This should be an interesting debate. I have always been one to say that good cannot exist without evil.
