    What is your definition of "win" and in what situation would you believe the decision to be settled.

    haha thats a nice physical way of putting it.

    I'll say the average will always win

    Evil's not really trying to win because that would be something good. ;)

    Its just a way of saying everyone should be able to do whatever they want as long as they can dream up some sort of excuse your not allowed to argue against.

    Things just happen. That's all there is to it. The Holocaust or you having a muffin with your cereal are equal in that they're just events.

    In this world, evil has always won and always will. Being good severely limits your options, while evil people can do whatever they want. They have an unfair advantage. Also, winning itself implies an evil act, as it means taking away from someone or destroying something.

    But if there's another world, with different rules, then evil may cease to exist. Only in that case good may be said to have won, simply be remaining alive while the opponent kills itself.

    The ball keeps rolling downhill,
    Time's Arrow on the move.
    The Prince of Chaos gets his share,
    And in the end . . . we loose.

    I'm with Smurf on this one. Good and evil are both strictly human-made concepts, and no 2 humans agree exactly upon which is which or where the lines are drawn. The only universal force is indifference.

    Gravity's pretty ubiquitous.

    Maybe a better way of putting this would be as time approaches infinity, does society approach a happy utopia or do we whipe ourselves off the face of the earth.

    Of course, as far as i know, theres no mathematically based law that defines this relationship.
