    Actually that would be Magpies. For that matter most birds tend to be very territorial and will kill each other if they get in each others "space". I could give you an example of every negative attribute mentioned here to some species of animal. Screaming "HUMANS" isn't going to make your point any more believable since we do not have a corner on any type of behavior we merely limit our judgments of good and evil to ourselves when discussing it to prevent anthropomorphism. If you are going to do that and limit it to humanity then all good must come from Humans as well since we do charitable works, love our family and friends, and try and save the lives of others when injured or endangered as well.

    Weakness is the root of all evil.

    If evil is something created through the acts of people, then I think it stems from moral weakness.

    It's natural to feel greedy, or selfish... but someone with moral strength can overcome these natural tendancies. If people were morally strong, then there would be much less 'evil'.

    Really? Do you have charts showing the number of good acts done per year vs bad?

    Here: List of countries by homicide rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia you can look at a breakdown of homicide rates per country based on each 100,000 people. So if the rate is say 55.3 (El Salvador), the highest rating in the world, then there is 55.3 homicides for every 100,000 people. So are you saying that out of the same 100,000 people only 13.8 people would try to save a life? Maybe in El Salvador, maybe, but if we take the average of 4 people per 100,000 worldwide does that mean just 1 in every 100,000 would do the opposite?

    The fact is both great good and great evil comes from humanity the question here is what makes the difference?

    but you are only looking at the semi-bad things that humans are doing to humans. Well ask your self have you ever littered outside??? Well thats a bad thing to the earth and all the animals. Next time look at the charts of how much waste is going from your home to the ground. Is that not evil enough for you???
    -Plain and simple humans are evil they are always evil nothing you can do can change that it comes from what your thinking and all that stuff....

    Let me get this right. You are rating littering above homicide in evil actions? (Littering=pure evil, Murder=semi-bad?) Dude I feel sorry for you.

    Waste can be recycled. Now let me see you resurrect someone.
