Thread: What Does This Mean?

I don't have a hard time answering those questions at all. It seems plainly obvious to me where the good and evil are in those pictures.
But my answer may be different from yours, and from the next person's. And many people who disagree with each other will be basing their ideas of good and evil on what they each believe God wants them to do.
Good and evil are both subjective concepts, and hotly contested. Even when we agree on what they are, they are both found in all sorts of people and situations. Good and evil are hardly suggestive of the existence or nonexistence of a literal God, although they might be the same as the metaphorical God that I think Nietzsche was referring to.http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

Ran across a CSpan Book TV discussion of "American Nietzsche" last night, caught the last few min & watched the web replay at [American Nietzsche] - C-SPAN Video Library (It cuts off the last few seconds)
General introduction and history of Fred and his influences on the left and right in America, some Q&A after.

Same here. I bet we agree.
My personal belief is that there is good in the world because people have a belief in God (and others) and/or a belief that, for them, it is more profitable to do good than evil.
I respect that you believe as you do. I think that good (however it may be defined) exists because people have an intrinsic drive to do good things, independent of any external forces or questions of profit. But people also have an intrinsic drive to do bad things, and that voice is usually easier to listen to.
