whats good and what's evil? what are the border lines of the two if any?
This viewpoint assumes that Good and Evil exist as absolutes.Originally posted by Bernardo
In order for evil or good to exsist there must be a God.
No.If all we have is ourselves to determine what is evil then can it really exsist?
I am pretty sure he meant...Originally posted by mikelus
I believe something as well - evil does not start with "e" but with "I", while Good ends with "U".
Please explain beter thanks

Sounds to me like your boss is an egotistical maniac and would have you believe just about anything in order to get what he wants. I would have as little to do with him as possible, unless risk the possibility of becoming the very thing that I hate.Originally posted by Bernardo
That's good I like it,
but I see a loop hole, what happens if your truth tells you that your boss is an idiot. Does that make keying his car or shooting his dog OK?
When we speak of the truth, we speak of the original design or intent. Therefore when we slander the truth, or lie, we hijack the good (take it out of context) and use it to serve some "ulterior motive."Originally posted by Bernardo
No my boss in not referred to in the post - I was just asking in a very round about way - what is this truth you see that good rests on?
Why would we need the reassurance, if it weren't a lie?Originally posted by THANOS
If you can't handle the truth i'll just tell you half of it.
We are good people.
there that's half of it.
And what a bloody awful mess the French Revolution was! Something no doubt got misconstrued somewhere!Originally posted by selfAdjoint
She does all of this in the course of discussing Robespierre "the incorruptible" leader of the French Revolution who, after "stripping the mask off of French society" (the nobiity) and showing its corruption, became suspicious of everyone in his circle that they were secretly not what they pretended to be, friends of the Revolution, but really hypocrites planning to undermine it. So he had them all executed, in the famous Terror.

Very sad, but very true.
I'm not sure who said this but, "the only thing needed for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing."
and this happens far too much.
Here's a question - Is being 'politically correct' an excuse for moral weakness? I think it is.
