What do you say when a Secular Humanist asks...

"Why is there so much evil in the world?"

You could just roll your eyes and say, "I know, isn't it awful?"

Or you could say it's due to the destruction of the family and pushing God out of our lives.

She asked and I answered. I don't think she liked the answer. Oh well!

"Do you mean real evil? Isn't that judgmental? Or do you just mean stuff you don't like?"

She meant real evil, i.e. "why is there more evil now than before" which was surprising for a secular humanist to say.

As I said, she wasn't happy with my response. Luckily this conversation took place at my brother's bed and breakfast and one of the guests, a female former seminarian (Episcopalian) came in so they were able to talk about secular humanist stuff...

In basketball terms, it was an easy lay-up (and I don't even play basketball)...
