Good and Evil, it all equals out
    #2553391 - 04/13/04 06:12 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Some people are ment for Heaven, some people are ment for Hell.
It just may be the fitting resting place for whom did what in the lives they lived before they died. To be good is not nessicerily good and being evil is not nessicerily evil. Everyone is who they are. THey are what the are for a reason and they are who they are because of the choices they made. Everyone walks the thread of life. It is everyones choice to be good or evil. But one is not better then they other. One can not exsist without the other so who is to say what is right and what is wrong? and yes, there is a right and wrong. but what is it?

Peace out my brothers, for everyone has a bit of insanity in them

Evil is Ego driven from man kind. Good is just from Source.

In my opinion, neither exist, except as conceptions of the mind. Saying something is good, is the same in my mind as saying i like it. Just as saying something is evil, is the same to me as saying i dont like it. But in fact neither value judgment is capable of defining anything as absolutely good, or absolutely evil. That is while it has meaning for me, it may not for another or for anyone else. Thus it is only a value i have assigned to something and not a fundamental aspect of absolute reality, just my lil corner of reality. It is true in the same way a lie is true or as good as true to the person who believes it, but that doesnt by default make it true for anyone else.

Sincerely,
That which is, and has no choice but to be.

I agree, it's relative to the person who thinks it exists.

Im kinda torn as to wheter good and evil actually exist.. One side says, they are both illusions of the mind , and the other says yes, there is good and evil. I think both sides are right, and have application in our lives. I think Yin and Yang have alot of application in this area.

Good and evil only exist within the context of human relations and the ability to make conscious choices.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

How can both sides be right: "In accordance with fact, reason, or truth; correct: the right answer" if they contradict each other?

morals!!!!

I always try to think that there is more of an individual perspetive of morals rather than something that is absolute, that is, something that applies to everyone. where that fine line is I really don't know.

I like to see evil and good as two sides of the same coin.

we are here to experience these polar ideas, and so yes without one there isn't the other.

to me there is a codependant relationship between the two.

maybe these ideas developed when we barely had language. you know a motivation so we can survive.

it's bad to be outside when its raining and it's cold. this way you get out of it, or try to with the best of your ability.

no food is bad so that gives us our motivation to go hunt.

so is this concept of bad really bad?????

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie
