The Battle Between Good and Evil Exists: It's Inside You

I don't believe in God or the Devil. I believe in good and evil for sure though.

I believe everyone is born with a set of commandments from within. If you broke your inner rules then it would tear open holes within you that evil filled. Some people call it guilt, but guilt is something that other people impose upon you.

The feeling I'm talking about comes from within and it's impossible to heal until you correct the wrong you have committed. You all have felt it: when you did something that little voice was telling you not to, but in the end everything turned out OK, right? WRONG. Yeah you can push that feeling away but it's still there and the next time you do something wrong, it will grow and continue growing until you don't even notice it anymore.

You make yourself believe a lie like "it doesn't matter" or "this was the best choice I could make" when deep down you know that's not true. This acceptance of the break in your moral code makes the hole in you even wider and that's when you start treating evil things like it's fine. It may start small, a lie here or there, or you cheat on a test, or you could have just stole the last piece of your friends gum, but what if it doesn't stop there!?

Now now people aren't all bad. Yes, some of us make bad decisions here and there but either we correct them or do something good that cancels out the the evil. Life must have balance and everyone does some small evil now and again but everyone also does some good whether they know it or not.

I'm too lazy to finish but the point is people do good and people do bad. It's all about YOUR perspective. Just stay true you yourself and never give up on what you believe and every thing else will fall into place.

Thanks for reading!

  • You didn't really substantiate your title which you ran with as a statement of fact.

    You said you do not believe in God. But then say you believe in good and evil. Which i presume you believe is objective...

    If that's the case. What objective basis do you have to lay foundation to there being such a thing as good and evil? "good" in an atheist materialistic sense is completely immaterial, you're going to have to pull some pretty strong strings from Christianity in order to make that argument of something different.

    Christianity claims there is such a thing as "good" and "bad" because we were endowed by God with an innate moral compass (that goes for anyone... christian or not, doesn't matter). Objectivity comes from a moral law which can only exist in an immaterial objective law giver.

    Now... as i shall presume, because you never stated. I presume you are an atheist. So your basis of objectivity is a bit mute. No one is any more right than another because everyone is equally wrong. If someone feels compelled to do something because their DNA compells them too.. You can't claim that it is "evil" whether it be rape, homicide or worse. If you do... you have to give a valid objective basis in order to condemn them. After all, in an immaterial world. The reality is "you are nothing more than a collection of molecules, dancing to the tune of your dna" - Richard Dawkins.

    Splitting someone in half is no different than splitting a grapefruit in half... in either case, you aree simply rearranging the atoms of the universe, neither good nor evil
