Science teaches that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. For every truth there seems to be at least one equally true opposite opinion. One mans gain is another's misfortune. In order to fully appreciate really good tasting food we have to have tasted something awful. It seems that life has to be balanced in every way ???? Evil (your definition) has a counter weight. Righteousness (your definition) has a counter weight. If we want the world to keep spinning we should be thankful for .. ALL .. of these counter weights.
Everybody is somebody's counter weight. THANK YOU EVERYBODY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perfect balance I think is where the world was a hundred years ago. Evil (what ever that is ) seens to have taken everything out of balance. I wonder what it will be like when it lays down point towards GODS side. Think Its Goina hapen soon
I think the only way to make this happen isn't going to be a belief or faith in god and forgiveness.
For each of us has a heart of "god" what we chose to do with it is a choice that each person makes as an individual. Evil is a possession of peoples minds... a perfect balance understands the complexities associated with the thoughts but balance knows better than to manifest our evil counterparts into the physical.
I don't think you can erase the hate but you can keep it from manifesting.
I believe we are all evil and good. It requires early education to teach children how to deal with this "evil" part of themselves as they get older, they can then see the consequences of evil and avoid it.
You think the world was in perfect balance in 1909?
There were at least five major wars that year, but I guess everything else could have been perfect. No murder, rape, molestation, or other crimes. No poverty, starvation, or tyranny, or any other life-sapping mass misfortunes.
Yes, there is only one truth. Certainly there is only one truth with regards to physical things (unless you'd like to talk about quantum uncertainty) and there is only one truth with regards to moral/philosophical questions. The example you cite is erroneous given that neither the rabbit nor the wolf are capable of moral judgments. Unless you posit another sentient life form then the only point from which to make moral judgments is from humanity, in which a single morality can be extrapolated.
I never said we knew what the answer was, or that we would agree when we found it, but I did say that there is an answer. I happen to think that I can make decent guesses at an approximation of what it is. And regardless of how muddled we are, we remain sentient, whilst the rabbit and wold do not.
As it should. Medical science alone is growing at an amazing speed, looking in to the very foundation of body and mind, with big breakthroughs almost daily. The thing about science is that it makes assumptions based on better and more advanced empirical evidence, pointers and information without the dogma. Changes are made across all scientific fields by marrying new information from any of the sciences to existing scientific theory.
Do they create a perfect balance? If there was no science with religion, what would hold religion in check to make up whatever they wanted? The same with science, if there was no religion, who would keep science from...
I just had an odd thought. We spend a lot of time in our lives reflecting on our actions, attempting to put things into perspective and wondering how to be better people. We also probably spend a similar amount of time...
I am always at a loss at what decides a good song? Is it the profundity of the words? Or, is it the guitar riffs? If it is the thoughts of the singer and their impact upon the society, you may as well go read a Plato or...
I find the god no god discussion so tired. Yet for some reason when human behavior is discussed good and evil creeps in, sin and virtue. What about humanity and its complexity without tainting it with religious...
I have asked you about Angels and gotten some pretty mind blowing answers. I asked you about immortality and got the same. It would be unfair to leave the bad guys out. Are the Demons written about in history real, or...
