There are TWO points I will be trying to make in this post. They are: there is no right/wrong and there is no good/bad person.
What makes a “good” and “bad” person? Qualities? Actions? Yes.
Who says that these “qualities” and “actions” are “good” or “bad” and “right” or “wrong”? Society? Religion? Yes.
Religion tells us that killing, stealing and lying are “bad”. Why are they “bad”? Religion tells us what is “bad” and we listen because we were told
what is “bad” since the day we were born. Religion also tells us what is “good”. Depending on your religion “good” is helping others, spreading faith
and listening to your “higher being”. We listen to these teaching also.
Society tells us that “bad” is being weak, nerdy and obeying laws. Society also tells us that “good” is having money, killing and breaking rules
(being a “tuff guy). We listen to society because we are constantly being told that these are “good” and “bad”.
Religion and society TELL us what is “good” and “bad”. We listen because we are being introduced to these teachings everyday. We don’t really listen
to their teachings, it just comes naturally because the teachings were introduced to us since the day we were born.
Prehistoric man killed his own kind because it was his NATURAL instinct. His NATURAL instinct was: to do whatever it takes to survive. Now, people
don’t kill people whenever they want, because they don’t NEED to in order to survive. That does not mean we should stop? We should do it for fun.
For example: prehistoric man killed animals in order to survive. Now we have stores to give us food to keep us alive. Does man having stores mean that
we should stop hunting just because stores are able to keep us alive?
Prehistoric man lied, cheated, stole and killed in order to survive. Now that we have things (stores, money) that allow us to survive without doing
“bad” things in order to survive does that mean we should stop?
Let’s say for example there is a toddler. That toddler is playing with his toys and he says “die” “die”. When the toddler’s mother comes in the room
and says “no, killing is bad” that toddler has that rule in his mind forever. Now, if we have a toddler that has no concept of “good” or “bad” he will
say “die” “die” because that is his NATURAL instinct.
When the toddler steals his brother’s lunch, because he his hungry, that is NATURAL. The toddler then gets his own lunch a couple minutes after his
brother everyday so he become used to it and has no need to steal. Does that mean he should stop?
My point is religion/society tell us what is “good” and “bad” and we listen because we are CONSTANTLY told these things. There is no “right” or
“wrong” because if we were NEVER told what was “right” and “wrong” we would do whatever we want and we would not think about it because that is our
Now that we know that there is no “right” and “wrong” we can say that there is no “good” or “bad” person. Humans judge other humans by their OWN
standards and that is why WE say that a person is “good” or “bad”.
If person A judged person B by his OWN standards he will come to the conclusion that person B is “good” or “bad”. You cannot judge a person by your
own standards so there is no REAL conclusion that way. If person A judges person B by person B’s standards he will come to a conclusion that he is
“good” or “bad”. BUT, there is NO “good”, “bad”, “right” and “wrong” because it is our NATURAL HUMAN instinct to do whatever it takes to survive no
matter what religion/society tells us.
Please don’t tell me I am wrong because “God said killing is wrong”. Think about what I said fully then make your own decision without allowing anyone
else to make the decision for you.
I am not saying go outside and kill people. I am saying to make decisions for yourself.
