We humans unfortunately are right in step with the ultimate law of the universe — probability balance. This means that creation and good at some point in time (by human reckoning) must be offset by destruction and evil — peace offset by war and love by hate. Of course the final human offset, if nature does not be us to it, are all those thousands of nuclear weapons set on hair trigger alert around the globe.
