First we must look at what "Evil" is and how we decide what is and what isn't evil, the Oxford English Dictionary defines evil as "Profoundly Immoral and or wicked", now the problem we have here is the evil is a reference to our own mortality, now who gets to decide what's evil or good? Doesn't everyone have different morals? One could even argue that the concept of evil doesn't even exist at all. But since I do have faith in humanity, I'm going to go down a different route and set out some examples of the world's good side.

Now as you know i do not believe that the world is an inherently evil place. There are so many selfless acts of kindness taking place all the time, just the other day 100 Londoners join together to lift a bus off of a complete stranger who had fallen underneath it. Here is the video for your enjoyment:

There are many other acts of kindness that show the world's good side, the Huffington Post recently eported an officer who had given his shoes away to a homeless man, and here is an image of 2 Norwich men risking their own lives to save a baby lamb from drowning. Another example amay be doctors going to Africa to fight the recent ebola crisis.

Those incidents show just a handful of radom acts of kindness, now think of the good on a global scale, last year over 1.4 Billion Dollars was donated to charity, these include charities looking for cures for dieases, animal welfare, education and foundations, so as we can see it is quite a broad spectrum. Not only do people donate to others but they also donate their own time too, with 1 Billion hours of voluntary work done in 2014 and 2.4 Billion people going out of their way to help a stranger (This could be anything from giving someone a ride to buying a homeless person a coffee).

The world can be a bad place at times but I believe that the good side of our human nature triumphs over the bad, the world isn't perfect but it certainly isn't Hell.
