    In psychology there are six modern psychological perspectives. These perspectives are behavioral, psycho dynamic, humanistic, cognitive, sociocultural, and biological.

Nevertheless, as a God-fearing community, they could not think of denying the evidence, because to deny the existence of Evil is to deny the existence of Goodness, which is God.
