Can you define what a good person is? Can you also define what a bad person is? Is mankind as a whole good or bad in your opinion? And why come to your answer? Does a person choose when to be either good or bad, or is it already in stone by their personality to be one of the two only for life?

good is someone who makes mistakes because of care,
those mistakes will be looked upon as wrong,
so that person can regret them and grow.

bad is a person who does not make mistakes,
because he does not care, lives in a false sense
of peace, does not breakes things, but makes
no the mistakes so a next generation can learn
from them.

Good persons will blame the world, while doing their best
to avoid that blame reaching the others, and trying to understand,
forgiving others before it reaches the others, even then
they will not succeed and by their failings and regret
they will change the world.

Growth is clockwise, both day and night, but the day
integrates the night into day.

Where ignorance thinks to live in the day before
it is time to do that.

Blame is always a reflection of the self,
in every blame there is a message about yourself.
Being good means SETTING FREE but this is only
possible after seeing bad, and turning it into white.

the gospel : accuse - forgive = turn the other cheeck =
see from two sides

an eye for an eye = what you blame another, you blame yourself

Can you..? A bunch of questions and no input...c'mon - try getting into your own thread.




On Topic:

This is dependent upon the social, cultural & religious ideologies of a particular region...

So, no...

you can't define a bad person,
but you can define a good one,

by seeing it (good) in all of us,
you become good by seeing yourself in all of them

only possible by growth, which means by mistakes sometimes.
Because to see something good in something bad,
you will first fight it. And by growth you will start
to fight your fight against it, which is defending.

Love is a fight. Thats why hate is a part of love.

Has it ever occurred to you that there is no such thing as "bad and good?"

Many spiritual traditions point to this idea, ie; "dualism is illusory" (various Eastern traditions) and original "sin" (which translates to "mistake" or "missing the mark") being the idea that humans could actually know "good and evil."

Perhaps the truth is that they are made up concepts, and everything really just "Is."

yes,

truth and bad doe snot exsist,
but choice does.

You can define good by choice that erased the choice,
and does the best thing, because his opening of the eyes
removed the possibility to close the eyes.

as opposite to ignorance.

Not bad, but choice.

Ignorance is a choice not to choose to defend the self,
in others and as a result in yourself.

there is goodness in the worst of us and badness inthe best of us i think the key is not to let the badness overtake the goodness and i think when youve masterd that it just becomes second nature to be good or you yust reverse it if you want to be bad

Good and bad can not be given a straigt forward definition.

What is good for one person can be bad for another and vice versa.

Even someone living a badass life, will probably choose for his own best interest.

So it's in the eye of the behoulder.

Even someone living a bad live could be good. He only made bad choises.

Offcourse ther is also evil. I will give it a deffinition. To be bad, not for personal gain but for pleasure.

Ciao !

Perhaps Good vs Evil would be a better question?

You call your dog Bad because it pooped on the floor? But there could be various reasons for this that are not it's fault. It could be frightened, upset, spoilt or unsure, would that make the owner bad, or they just don't know how to look after a dog? So would that be a poor choice for a pet for this person hence a bad decision.

I think morales and situation beckon whether something was good or bad, which would lead to choice, good choice, bad choice.

Now Good vs Evil in my opinion is inherent, you are either Good, Neutral or Evil. Despite what happens in your life, and Evil person makes very bad decisions on purpose, for personal gain or satisfaction knowing that it is wrong. Serial Killers, Rapists, Paedophiles, Bank Managers ect.

So, to answer your question properly, I need to know from what angle your coming from?

Good and Evil is a personal choice. At least for me it is.

So you are both? and at what age did you decide to have a split personality?

I just know I have choices and my choices effect everyone around me and sometimes even people not around me. And how is that a split personality. Your saying you've never done something you would consider evil... and what's up with the personal attack, You wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

No but perhaps they were bad choices but not Evil acts? Someone who abuses a child to the point of death for pleasure, then gives blood to there local hospital cannot be deemed as Good and Evil, they are inherently Evil regardless of choices made after that.

Its not a personal attack and if you deemed it as such I apologise, and no, I have not committed an Evil act, but I have made bad decisions/choices.

Here is my input...

Good person is someone who doesn't try to hurt anyone else. A bad person is opposite. Mankind, in my opinion, is full of bad of the 'overly good to the point it hurts' types. And yes, a person does choose which path to go about something.

no big deal..., but I Get your point.

To bad we can't relive moments and make different choices.

I understand that is life though, and with this life I plan on doing as much as possible to right the wrongs i've done.

To my way of thinking, there are but two kinds of people in the world. The first kind is in Service to Others in all they do. The Second kind is in Service to themselves, in all they do. It is very easy using this measure to distinguish which a person is when you get to know them a little. One cannot be the other, and there are only two.

On another note, there are but two thoughts anything is based on too. Love, and Fear. Everything you do is based on one or the other, and there is no gray area here.

Good is, compared to bad.

Bad is, compared to good.


Other than that they do not exist. One has to exist for the other to exist too.

"Good" and "bad" are just two arbitrarily-defined extremities of the equally arbitrary quality of "goodbad" or "badgood."
