In order for there to be good, must there be evil?
Don't know all we have are good and evil
Bad things happen in life but not all of it is evil. Things like death, sickness, failing etc... By helping ppl out at those times of need in major and minor situations as a stranger you show yourself as a good person. Friends are expected to help.
No, just the knowledge of the concept of evil.
Would you have a concept of evil if it didn't exist?
I didn't think you were taking away what I already know.
First I think yes. But then what about the new heaven and new earth? They will be perfect, no evil. But perhaps it is the knowledge of past evil that will help with that.
If there wasn't how could you tell the difference.. You have to have something to compare it to..
Eddie Murphy covered this in "Vampire in Brooklyn" :P ...and if you get some evil ass, woo baby!
"For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" ....the words fit more than physics
Evil is a stretch. I can see the point with good vs. Bad, but not with an extreme like evil.
Grades of goodness is not the same as evil. I hope that furthers the discussion and does not start an argument.
So doc, do you believe evil does not exist?
Only good. Dual theory was thrust on us by political groups hiding their self interests in the guise of religion. Example. In an Only Good ice cream shop you either get 2 or 3 scoops. Is the occasional 1 scoop really evil!!
Of course, it's the only way.
Yes, without evil there is no good.
