“Where there is no God, it’s difficult to give much intellectual credence to evil as an organizing principle in human affairs, as a vague comprehended supernatural force. It’s a useful way of talking about a side of human nature, and it’s metaphorically rich and, for that reason, hard to live without. Harder to live without evil, it would seem, than without God.”

– Ian McEwan, The Art of Fiction No. 173
