Node Text: If Free Will is illusory, Evil is also illusory

If one tries to disprove the relationship of Free Will and Evil by insisting that Free Will does not exist, then one must also allow that Evil does not exist.

Free Will implies that Creation is able to choose its own path. If no choice is made, then all choices are of equal moral merit. In such a situation, Evil could not be said to exist -- it would be equivalent to Good.

If you believe that Evil exists, you must also believe in Free Will.
