The source of all evil that makes it possible or creates an environment that tempts people into following evil. The Devil lies at the very heart of what you would call 'BA'.
Just bear in mind that the very concept of "God is the source of all good, while Satan is the source of all evil" is absolutely a WESTERN mindset. Countless people walking the earth do not perceive the universe as a battleground between the source of good and the source of evil. Chances are strong that anyone who doesn't subscribe to the Western mode of thinking won't perceive ANY one being as the source of all good or evil, depending on what traditions they do align themselves with.
