I have no opinion on this.


Awesome! ha ha

On topic - Opinions aren't the root of all evil. IMHO stupidity is.





Stupidity is relative.....



So by your logic Evil is also relative?



Korg.


The truth of the infinate counsiousness or infinate god, is neither opinion nor relative, it is eternal and spawns all existance.

Sorry, I don't believe in God or the Devil...

I don't believe in Good or Evil. I do believe however, there are certain Morals and Standards and Principles that as a human being we should all share.

Do you believe in 11th Dimentional Hyperspace?

I believe that space-time at it's most fundamental is chaos, and that all matter and energy is derived from this quantum foam. That you me the chair you sit on are all connected by this sea of pure potentiality.

String theory is a simplified version of Quantum Gravity. String theory is a lower resolution view of space-time at the fundamental. What string theory states about strings is in fact correct... however it does not explain why.... whereas Loop Qauntum Gravity is a far deeper understanding of not only why but how as well.

I suggest you research LOOP QUANTUM GRAVITY (LQG)

But this has nothing to do with the concepts of Good or Evil.

Well if that is the case then I certainly don't want to have any part of your post (opinion).

You would have to accept then, that all facts are born from opinion - if we did not have any opinions other than knowledge of facts we currently have then there would be no new facts born. We also wouldn't have judgement or the ability to think for ourselves. Also, what do you call a fact? Since so few "facts" can be proven without using opinion.

It's a funny idea, but I don't think it's very practical. We wouldn't even be able to have this conversation. No verbal communication would be conversations anymore,they would be nothing more than empty questions or simple reiteration of what you have been told in the past to be fact.

Formulating an opinion is more work than people assume. It's easy to simply assert a proposition, but can one back it up with argument and evidence?

You only need to look at all the different visions of what is good and what is evil in all the different religions to understand that one version of good is another versions evil...

One can conclude then that the concept of Good and Evil is itself an artifact of culture.

This coupled with the statistical improbability that we are the only intelligent life in the universe.

Agreed. All value judgements are made by man. But why is this reason to not believe in it? Second, why capitalize Good and Evil?

Because not only is there no evidence for it, there is a wealth of evidence to suggest it is an artifact of culture.

If you were to believe in things just because... you might as well believe in fairies and dragons...

Capitalist to emphasize..... A way to add expression to clinical text.

No evidence for what though? You’ve capitalized Good and Evil as if they are proper nouns, leading me to believe you’re speaking about mythical entities or beings of some sort, Good and Evil according to some mythology, and not good and evil according to the common conception of them. Sure there is no evidence for these mythical entities named Good and Evil (a five year old could hold this opinion), but there is vast evidence that shows people employ the terms good and evil as value judgements on nearly a cross-culturally and universal scale.

In my opinion, believing or not believing in Good and Evil as entities is a waste of time. Yes these mythical creatures named Good and Evil are artifacts of culture, but making value judgements of this sort isn’t.

Usually italics are used to emphasize.

Wouldn't this mean that your thread is the root of all evil, since your opinion is that opinions are the root of all evil?

What is interesting about others
is that they are "other".
I'm glad we don't all have the same opinion! Life would be so boring!

Though now that I think about it, under developed opinions irritate me.
When people without an opinion want to argue, it is just stupid.

You are reading way too much into the fact I used capitals.

I do not believe in any entities that embody good or evil, nor do I believe in the concepts of good or evil.

No action is better or worse than the other, it is only what is.

What separates a fact from an opinion?

Isn't a fact really just multiple people with the same opinion agreeing with each other?

No.

A fact is an undeniable. Facts are the exact opposite to opinion.

1+1=2...

Undeniable, hey?

Well, what if a currently held "fact" turns out to be observably inaccurate in its current form at some time in the future?

Moreover, any "fact" you describe is derived from human perception. You cannot know whether it is objectively true without attaching a human perspective to your observation.

Are you really trying to say that at some point in the future 1+1 will equal a value other than 2?
