so, you're saying good and evil is subjective?
yep, and that means that it ain't good or evil. just a point of view.
I think that there are basic things in the world that
are good and evil. thinking of others, helping out
when it ain't to your advantage, not being a dick to
others just cause you can . . . then again, not.
I don't believe there is a god or a devil or anything there.
I can close my eyes and all I see it the back of my eyelids.
but that ain't right, there is evil. and it is nature, it is
human. but, it is never just the way things are.
Then again, tomorrow is another day, and for me,
evidence of divinity doesn't need to be empirical. I
don't know anything. But I know enough not to fear
what it is I do not know or understand, but to
embrace it, to know that it is always possible to
change my mind and embrace new way of thinking,
gah, what I might be trying to say, in reply to kinglizard, is
that it is not science that is satan, it is not satan at all. the
devils, the gods, they're all in you. the things people do
in the name of religion ain't no better or worse then
they do for science.
It seems that these days all the temples are full of empty
rituals, churches, banks, universities, labs.
thinking that there is good or bad to something like science is
the same as saying 'humans are good and bad'.
I agree. just don't lay it on satan.
