So I guess the lava that destroyed Pompeii was not evil, lacking any
intention to do harm. But what about the serial killer who can't find
any victims?

In following your bit of discussion of evil, I found this one about a serial killer best, kind of like the tree falling in the forest. I think we call a lot of things evil, but they are not themselves (as events or even people) evil. However,I do think there is a presence that can be called into being with tragedies,and actions. I do not see nature as having a mind, but I do see people as having them, even if we say they have lost their mind, and I do think the mind has the capability to call about evil. Still,I think we also have the capability to call about good or God. I thought M. Scott Peck wrote very well regarding evil and life in "People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil"
