As for my views on this subject, I still stand by them. I think if you view the bad things as necessity in growing, you can overcome so much more, and I think you grow pretty much immediately just from that revelation. I just don't see things as evil, wicked... I see them as still not good, but also not as destruction. Hope that makes sense.
Also, Matrix, I'm glad you joined. You and I have enjoyed some awesome debates, and I always appreciate your wisdom and insight.
On the flip side, some men believe they are so good, as if empowered by God to rid the world of "evil", that they too hurt people. Look at all the religious murders. People killed in the name of God, and the power of good. The witch trials would be a great example. And this wasn't good, it was pure intolerance, but they didn't see it that way. It's just a matter of perception.
