Do you believe in pure evil? For instance--is it possible for a human being to be purely, entirely evil?

The simple answer is that, no, I don't believe in pure evil--certainly not when applied to human beings.

I believe that all people may choose good. (It's kind of central to my religious faith.) And so I can't believe that no one is redeemable or worthy of hope.

Even the worst characters in history had the chance to be better people, if only they had taken that risk and accepted the challenge to make better choices. But everyone is given the free will to make up their own paths and those paths can be good, bad, or vacillating between the two on a frequent basis.

Anyway, that is my (very short) answer.

Thanks for asking.
