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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree except on the truth issue.
The opposite of truth is a lie, or deception, or a misinterpretation of that which is true
not an opinion of something else that is true.
If you get my meaning there
yeap its so true but the problem, its getting unbalanced.can't figure it how?? if follow the big bang theory universe exist because of the unbalanced too
Without a great source of irritation...the oyster forms no pearls.
Iron sharpens Iron and as we get closer, it will be painful.
lol- so I wonder what kind of reaction happens in a perfectly balanced state?
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 think that your last statement is dead on, exactly right. While our minds are focused on BAD things, It ain't thinking on the productice side of the tracks.
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.
Good ol' 1909.
The heat death of the universe.
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.
With so much controversy and argument about what is truth and lie (or untruth) perhaps we are not so far removed from the awareness and mentality of a rabbit or a wolf.
Perhaps we are not so grand as we presume ourselves to be, if we are in such disarray amongst our ownselves.
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.
A rabits truth is that the wolf that eats it is evil
The wolf cub thanks that this is a blessing.
This is "THE" problem. You believe that there is only ONE truth.
Thank you Daniel that's sorta what I was thinking in my introverted moment
The older and wiser that I become, The more I realize that I know fewer things with certanty. What is deemed as an Absolute truth depends upon who gets to interpretation the evidence.
A good reason to apply the scientific method to beliefs.
Science keeps changing their truths too. The limit keeps movin
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 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...
