“For man, when perfected, is the best of animals, but, when separated from law and justice, he is the worst of all; since armed injustice is the more dangerous, and he is equipped at birth with the arms of intelligence and with moral qualities which he may use for the worst ends. Wherefore, if he have not virtue, he is the most unholy and the most savage of animals, and the most full of lust and gluttony.”
Are animals evil ? can we say a lion is evil because he eats Flesh while an elephant is good because he eats Vegetables ?
From my point of view I think it makes no sense adding the metrics of good and evil on animals, because animals don’t have a concious. They just eat when they are hungry, drink when they are thirst, play when they feel they want to play..etc.
But humans have this concious they know they have a duty to help others even if others hurt them, they can say no to food and fast they can restrain anger, restrain themselves from adulatory..all these things animals can’t do.
When humans lose their conciousness they become the most evil and savage creatures.
So do not ever let your heart blacken and lose your concious that God gave you. Remember..Be Human.
You have the ability to say no to your desires.
It’s a gift so don’t lose it cuz if it falls from you, you can’t get it back again.
