You are mistaken my friend...

there is nothing wrong with the world.

the world is perfect... It is just the way we make it.


Quoted for truth. But I think the OP knows this, just wanted to make the title more confronting to get more attention, which is ok.

We create the world, but there is no "fault", no "blame" and nothing is "wrong".

Thanks for the reminder, I needed that

Blah blah blah, wild theories and obfuscating our sense of reality.

Nope, not buying it.

I oppose most things in this world - I believe very strongly in justice and I see no justice in the world. How is it my karma causing it? The innocent suffer at the hands of the guilty. That's not a problem with your phantom karma, it's just the sad nature of reality and the sad quality of the human race.

We live in a world of opposites. Good and bad, Hot and cold. These are the ways that we experience our existance, our reality. All these opposites are made up of the same thing. Hot and cold water are both still water.
If you stand apart from this experience that we call life you wil see that good and evil don't really exist. There are no villans and no victums in this world. Things just are what they are.
The human soul is all knowing and all powerfull. If you don't like the world the way it is... CHANGE IT!
Like Martin Luther King did. Like Hitler did. Like Jesus Christ and Buddha.

Except cold is the lack of heat... Should give you an indication what evil is.

Yes it does...

By that definition evil would be The Crusades. The slaughter of the Templar knights. The extermination of entire heathen races of people in the old testament or even the bringing down of the world trade centre.

Evil by your definition is evil regardless of who is performing the sin. Christians, Cahtholics or you.

Evil is an outstanding philosophy in a black and white world... unfortunately the world we live in only shades of grey.

Which is worse... A husband abusing his wife or his wife allowing him to do so by doing nothing to stop it?

Who is right? Who is wrong?

It's the split second you infringe on another person's well being. I account for the shades of grey just as I prepare for the change in seasons. The right thing to do is cross over the threshold to sacrifice. The wrong thing to do is quite obvious... Turn on the news most days.

Can't win all the time, but I have a pretty decent track record. To be more specific (since you're going back and forth between absolutes) what I reference is not the current structure of our society. What you're witnessing now is a lack of integrity, greed, and basic ignorance trickling down. In this case it starts with you, and empties with a sinkhole atop your family and friends. I hope for everyone's sake you're not the role model in this outfit.

Agreed... there is a distinct lack of positive influences and healty role models in todays society, this does cause many people to experience what they may define as less then desirable experiences...

But if you are unhappy with the world aound you my friend, I invite you to change it. God knows that what we are doing is not working... But that doesn't make us evil.

I provide links to what I'm doing. I was also under the impression you missed the sticking point. Since it's found to be correct I'll reiterate: Not evil, but lesser and lesser degrees of good.

What utter rubbish. Your "cest la vie" attitude is academic nonsense that you can push because your mind isn't living anywhere near reality. If you are beaten by the police state, murdered, your family murdered, your house burned to the ground, etc. You will know that victims exist and that you are one.

There is a massive amount of evil in this world. If you don't fight against it, you are part of it.

I'm sorry, I know you mean well and I applaud your post to the max. I can not put aside Christ for anything. Not for one second. I do that to much as it is and am trying to learn not to. FnS is hardly an offering but it means I approve of your decency. Good luck.

without evil there can be no good

it's a simple philosophical concept.

Simple =/= true.

I will now tell you of 2 imaginary planets in addition to Earth. One houses a warlike lizard race who kill each other as a matter of course. Another houses beings that live mostly in harmony with each other. Each species' behavior is a resulting characteristic of their genome.

If the warlike lizard planet suddenly got destroyed, it would not destroy the other. The good beings that live in harmony didn't need the warlike planet to exist, in order to exist. They're just good.

Why do humans persist in these ridiculous notions of yin and yang, why do supposed philosophers end up equivocating so often? If you can't recognize evil, you simply haven't had enough evil happen to you.

To help, to coexist peaceably, to explore intellect and wisdom, to love, and to give of onesself, these things are good.

To hurt, to destroy, to spread ignorance and fear, to hate, and to act out of greed, these things are evil.

If you can't comprehend this, too bad.

That is your choice to be infringed upon. You created the circumstance where you could be infringed upon if someone held the opinion expressed. The words are neutral, they are gibberish. We each see the pattern and assign/create our own meaning to them... and then based on the meaning we interpret... we choose a response.

You have the choice to be infringed by another's opinion being expressed. This is your free will to be a co-creator of the universe with the rest of us.

How are you using these choices?

Namaste.

Ha ha hah...

FINALLY! Signs of intelligent life out there... I stand corrected. You speak the truth.
I feel compelled to apologise for my behaviour but I guess I can't offend you unless you let me

Thank you for that important lesson.

Peace, Love and Light

So you state that you (and, you presume, most people) personally need the evils of the world to exist, just so that you can be properly entertained. Seek help.

All people aren't the same. You don't know me. You must be describing yourself above and hoping I am like you. I'm not.

Another epic fail of logic. "If there is a heaven there won't be any christians there" -- I presume hateful atheists such as yourself have some free pass into heaven (the heaven you don't believe in) that I am not aware of, care to show us those credentials?

So you've done all the evils of the world then. Murder, rape, oppression, blackmail... could this be the dumbest thread concept so far on ATS? Oh, probably not, but it's up there.

I am blameless for things I haven't done.

If everyone in the world were like me, maybe not that much would get accomplished, but the important things would, and everyone would at least be smart enough to stop doing all the stupid things people currently do. And ethical enough to stop doing all the unethical things people currently do. Extending me, the individual, to the entire world, would make a much better world than we currently have. I freely welcome the judgment of the cosmos in that regard.

So if 5 people cheat on their taxes, all taxpayers are to blame
If 50% of people cheat on their spouses, all married people are to blame.
Etc etc.

Please continue. This fascinates me in the same way that Earth-centrists fascinate me. It's a good insight into abnormal psychology and just how dumb the dumbest belief can be.

Give me the power to change the world and I will create a paradise. I, the lowly individual, have almost no power. it would take millions just like me, organized and set forth to accomplish the proper change.
