    Default Good, evil, the same

    As far as I'm concerned, there is no good or evil. Their just two sides pointlessly trying to kill each other. There are only social classes, and people fighting between them.

    I have proven that war is pointless. Questions?

    ....Which is exactly my point. You can see the signs all around us: the government that says it's good; the devil who is thought to be evil; and many more examples.

    Pretty much. Good & Evil is just an abstract concept relegated to sentient beings subject to a ridiculous amount of acceptions and loopholes. Do you smother a crying baby when there are trigger happy nazis hunting you and your pals on the other side of a thin wall?

    Well done, nidogod. That was a perfect example. There is no good or evil, no right or wrong; there aren't any real consequences. Jail? It's just a visual representation of life.

    Ohh no, you bet your ass there's consequences! But they're mostly mental and social. Sure you're a hero in that scenario, but your a baby killer too. You can rationalize and justify all you like, but you're gonna be stuck with that memory all your life and so will the people who saw you do it. That kind of thing will fuck a person up inside.

    Only if they believe in right and wrong. Mentally, it is possible to go insane. It's been proven by science. But socially, you are actually invincible if you realize that there is no right or wrong.

    Good and evil are social constructs. Morality is a matter of opinion.

    Couldn't have said it better myself, though morality is questionable.

    I could have said it a lot better. I would have started out by not saying something so stupid in the first place.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    Besides, by the logic of the thread about Death, you shouldn't even exist.

    Good is white. Evil is black. The thing is, very often there are shades of PINK!

    "Morality is a matter of opinion." Ridiculous statement in such a broadly defined topic.

    Why isn't it?

    I've just had the same discussion with my sister, and we're now on to "Do I exist?" It's fun. I think.

    Murdering people when your safety wasn't at steak has pretty much been considered evil and immoral since pre-civilization.

    Because a species can't continue if it insists on killing itself. It's not wrong, it's just impractical.

    Not to mention boring, but that's just a state of mind. It is irrelevant.

    There was some sPecial about a guy who conducted experiments on red and white sPonges and discovered that hatred is common in all life or something. I have it on DVD so I'll put some of it up later.

    Hatred is also a state of mind, therefore it is irrelevant.

    Edit: Hatred and other emotions are caused by HORMONES. But they're still irrelevant.

    Are you serious? Mankind, in its short existence on this planet, has essentially come to dominate it, yet we still fight amongst ourselves at nearly all times. Ridiculous statement The Editor.
