the most evil human being is probably very intelligent. The property of being evil would have to include being a cold calculating genius almost. This is why in traditional cartoons the villian is almost always an evil genius.


The most evil human being is probably very intelligent.


If they were intelligent, they would also know all the risks, not just from authorities, but from rivals as well. When your a master-mind criminal, 1. The police want you.
2. Other rivals would try to kill you.

To make it even more promising, anyone who knows history knows that most geniuses over-estimate and gets killed. Look at Hitler, and what happened to him. Look at Al laden, and hear what befell HIM.

If their cold calculating genius, why don't they see this an run far away from crime??
Debate Round No. 1


1. This super evil person is probably above the police in power and authority like a pope or president, I'm sure LOTS of people would arrest Obama if they could for various evils and treasons, he is just simply too powerful and protected.

2. I'm sure other rivals would kill this evil person but he is too cunning and well protected probably by body guards, a bullet proof car and so on. He may even be smart enough to have a double.

3. This person doesn't turn from crime because he is by definition EVIL. He loves crime, torturing innocents and doing the opposite of what Jesus would do.

If we put a mental retard in a room with a baby and I very smart, intelligent man in another room with a baby. and the retarded man accidentally killed the baby or killed it thinking it was harmful or some other such thing while the intelligent man thought about it and killed the baby for some "reason" like he thought it was too innocent or reflected Gods glory or the world had too many babies, or some other "reason" I think that we could all conclude that the intelligent man was more evil, not only more evil but more dangerous.

The dictionary defines evil as "profoundly immoral and malevolent"

malevolent is "having or showing a wish to do evil to others"

Thus the most evil human wishes more than anyone else to "do evil to others" so probably tries to do evil to the maximum number of people and so he would position himself into a place of power where he could effect the most people and generate the most evil. This would take a great deal of intelligence.


logic dictates that an intelligent man killing a child for fun is more evil than a retarded man killing a child for fun thus the most evil human would have to be very intelligent and not retarded. He would have to be well aware of what is good and acceptable and knowingly choose to violate that in order to be extremely evil and malevolent.

Just out of curiosity, do you agree with the premise that the most evil human is probably very intelligent or do you honestly disagree?



I honestly believe that anyone who goes into crime is a moron, no offence to any criminals out their:)

1. According to law, unless Obama had the whole US army and international support, he would with no doubt be in prison. Plus, even with that, many US troopers would abandon Obama because they are people too, with families. A pope would be stoned by the Church.

2. If evil people are so smart, don't you think they would compensate for body-guards? A missile would do the trick to wast anyone, and doubles don't usually work very well.

3. We aren't arguing the is or is not's evil, we are arguing the intelligence level of a master-mind criminal

4.It their so smart, why aren't they already in control???

Just because a person can or can't enter a position to effect people doesn't support the fact that they are smart. It doesn't take a smart man to blackmail, murder, or bribe.

And are you saying that an intelligent man killing a baby is equal to a biological war begun by a retard. also, many retards are aware of what is right and wrong and of what they are doing.
Debate Round No. 2


1. Agreed, This evil person is most likely powerful and protected.

2. we just agreed they would most likely have military support.

3. intelligence level.

a) to have military support as agreed in premise 2. would require a high level of intelligence.


To be very evil and not get caught or killed would take a great deal of intelligence and deception.


The most evil human is in a position of great military power and influence and is VERY deceptive and intelligent.



jjhotgun forfeited this round.

I find it very funny that the religious concept of Evil doesn't exist in reality.

The nearest we can get to evil in human nature are psychopaths.
But, the cause for their inability to comprehend human empathy or altruism is known to be caused by damage or faults within the limbic system (empathy center) of the brain.

Thus even psychopaths are not evil.
If found early enough, they can be chemically treated and behavior can be modified or controlled.
Those that get out of control, like Hitler and others are becoming rare.
Many are picked up during their schooling.

Though there is a saying that the majority of high flying business executives are psychopaths.

In past times such psychopaths were considered as possessed by Evil Spirits, this is the evil that religion considers. This has never existed.
Attempts to remove the evil spirits from psychopaths (and some forms of autism that presents itself as the patient having no empathy (morals)) has always either failed or resulted in the death of the poor victim.
Though in Christian terms, their death is the cure of their evil, god wanted it that way, which is the attitude in burning witches.

Aye M8z :-D-

Space, time, matter... everything originated in the Big Bang, an incommensurably huge explosion that happened 13.7 billion years ago. The Universe was then incredibly hot and dense but only a few moments after, as it started to cool down, the conditions were just right to give rise to the building blocks of matter " in particular, the quarks and electrons of which we are all made. A few millionths of a second later, quarks aggregated to produce protons and neutrons, which in turn were bundled into nuclei three minutes later.

Then, as the Universe continued to expand and cool, things began to happen more slowly. It took 380,000 years for the electrons to be trapped in orbits around nuclei, forming the first atoms. These were mainly helium and hydrogen, which are still by far the most abundant elements in the Universe.

Another 1.6 million years later, gravity began to take control as clouds of gas began to form stars and galaxies. Since then heavier atoms, such as carbon, oxygen and iron, of which we are all made, have been continuously "cooked" in the hearts of the stars and stirred in with the rest of the Universe each time a star comes to a spectacular end as a supernova.

So far so good but there is one small detail left out: cosmological and astrophysical observations have now shown that all of the above accounts for only a tiny 4% of the entire Universe. In a way, it is not so much the visible things, such as planets and galaxies, that define the Universe, but rather the void around them!

Most of the Universe is made up of invisible substances known as 'dark matter' (26%) and 'dark energy' (70%). These do not emit electromagnetic radiation, and we detect them only through their gravitational effects. What they are and what role they played in the evolution of the Universe are a mystery, but within this darkness lie intriguing possibilities of hitherto undiscovered physics beyond the established Standard Model. Atoms are 99.9% empty space. Enjoy :)

Ha Fritzy! @"Jesus is the living God"

Well then, who was Jesus talking to/at on the crucifix?

LOL! Himself.
Jesus was such a loser/(willy-cranker).

You obviously are Not aware of True Scripture, youre too obsessed with that watered down stuff from around 2,000 yrs ago.

DevientGenie 2:7--The Genie is Not deviAnt in any evil way. The second 'e' in his name is testament to that fact. he is merely splashing the world with a glass of ice water :)

Your name says it all DEVIENT GENIE. you bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but you yourself will not move them with one of your fingers.

all religions are a joke like all elephants are heavier than ants :)

Splitting hairs on religion is like splitting hairs on any other poison :)
Posted by FritzStammberger 3 years ago
you said "you represent divisivness, you represent discouragement of free thought, you represent religion, the catalyst to divisiveness :)"

so are you just completely intolerant of the christian perspective? or do you highly discriminate against any other world views?
