    From one of my books:
    .
    “It’s clear that people do bad things, but how you know those things are bad things? What IS a “bad” action? What is evil? Evil must be defined before one can answer those questions.
    .
    Evil has been defined in different ways. Some define it as being an absence of good, in the same way that absolute zero is the absence of energy. Others define it as a force in itself or as a state in itself.
    .
    The Bible uses the term evil in two ways— misfortune and moral evil. Misfortune is self-explanatory. Moral evil is that evil which springs from selfishness.
    .
    As an example, here are Commandments Six through Ten of the Ten Commandments:
    13 " “You shall not murder.
    14 “You shall not commit adultery.
    15 “You shall not steal.
    16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
    17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” " —Exodus 20:13-17 (KJV)
    .
    Murder, adultery, stealing, lying, and coveting.
    .
    Every one of those moral evils spring from human selfishness of one kind or another."
    .
    Note that those evils are things that harm others. Murder harms the victim. Adultery harms the victim. Stealing harms the victim. Lying harms the victim. Coveting leads to a host of things like theft that harm the victim.

    Beware, Little Rex! Going to Dogbert for advice on Good and Evil is only one step below asking the Prince of Heck!

    Interestingly, the new Dilbert today is also about thinking with your gut.

    Thinking with your gut makes your thoughts crappy.

    Actually, there are 613 commandments in the bible, and virtually no-one follows any of them, but then again, the bible is a work of fiction, so it doesn’t matter.

    It’s interesting that rape and child abuse never made the commandments list.

    You’re not so bad at it yourself; but, did you really have to post it three times?????

    You beat me to it! I was thinking how Scott Adams has not changed that much, still talking about gut feelings.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Most people would agree with that regardless of religion since such things are common sense in a normal time. However in a disaster some of those things are not bad in context.

    Situational ethics isn’t something to be dismissed.

    A glitch in the system will sometimes post duplicates. You can delete the top two.
