    If there was no good nor righteousness in the world,what do you think the world would be like?

    If you think about, you cannot have good or righteousness without the existence of bad or evil. If there was only evil, you would have nothing to compare it too, thus you wouldn't know things were messed up. Everything would seem normal.

    Glad we don't live in such a world. I'm an extreme optimist and have the utmost hope in humanity.

    Not much different than what we are living in now.
    Probably a bit more violent.

    But also more honest. As our sense of what is supposedly considered good and bad is also what makes us lie about our real motives. Not only to others but mostly to ourselves.
    although people would still lie about their motives and goals so to get other people to help them in their selfish acts.

    So it wont be much different.

    It would come to an end in less than a generation.   For mothers would not nurse their young.   

    There is a commonly held belief in much of the world today that the world (humankind in the world) is getting worse.   I think not!   We haven't thrown people to the lions in any of our big stadiums in around 2,000 years, and gladiators don't fight to the death for our entertainment.   The world is far less wicked now than it was. 

    However, with the media everywhere searching for gory-stories, we can be easily led to believe that the world is worse now than in earlier times.   

    Be very careful of what you see on the T.V., hear on radio or read in the newpapers.   Many journalists never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    Ha ha, well we'd probably be all dead, because no one would be intervening in the day to day crisis, or wars, or famine. It's already a mess with out the ones that try to stop it, there would be nothing!

    It is difficult to answer this question. Because we would not have known anything different or better, so we would have thought that what we were doing was the right thing. Wrong would have looked right in our sight as there would have been nothing to compare it to.

    If there were no good, there would also be no bad.  If there were no righteousness, there would be no unrighteousness.  I have no idea what such a nihilistic reality would look like.
