    But that is the basis of most religions.

    Sadly true. So I left.

    I explored that idea in one of my books.
    .
    The universe itself functions that way. Positive and negative. Energy and its absence. Everything has an opposite.
    .
    All things can be reduced to their base components.
    .
    In painting, straight shades of grey are produced by mixing black and white. Most people, quite frankly, will use the excuse of a “grey area” when they know something is completely wrong. It’s a common rationalization. “It’s a grey area that I steal this car. I need a car, this person’s well off, and so it’s a grey.” And of course, it’s not.
    .
    It’s only the vain philosophers from the 1700s on and a few religions like hinduism and socialism that claim there is no right and wrong.
    .
    Take Hinduism. On one hand, it claims there is no right or wrong. Only greater and lesser good. On the other hand, it claims there is good karma and bad karma. In Hindu Monism and Buddhism, it’s a belief that if you have suffering in life, it’s because of doing bad things in a past life. But at the same time denying that there is right and wrong. The law of non-contradictions takes a beating when it comes to religions like Socialism or Hinduism.

    The idea of some big eye watching everything is so asinine.

    This brings up many deeper thoughts than even someone who likes to be verbose cares to expound upon in a comments area.


    I like to enjoy my evils, while considering myself a good person. I try to be careful never to hurt others or their property but can use my own with reckless abandon. I am honest to a fault and always keep my promises and I find it difficult to understand those who choose to be dishonest I believe there is absolute evil and many lesser degrees of it. Therefore I have to believe in absolute good as well.

    Between dharma and adharma. The gods, lesser, and asuras or demons are mostly one or the other. Humans are unique in that they can go either way. There are exceptions.

    Socialism isn’t a religion. No wonder you get so much wrong.

    Evil isn’t as easily defined as some think so. Some things ae called evil and really aren’t. They just disagree with your religion.

    There are Laws and Commandments that govern our existence. Gravity is of them. When someone steps off a cliff, they have the freedom to deny that gravity exists but the result of the fall being stopped by the ground never factors that belief into the equation.
    When someone makes a promise to keep one of the 10 Commandments and he does keep the Commandment, there will be consequences that are linked to keeping that Commandment. The equation of cause and effect does not factor in that someone denies G o d’s existence.
    .
    We know that other laws can affect the equation of the Law of Gravity. Planes use the airfoil effect.
    .
    So too, Repentance of a violation of a Commandment and acceptance of a Savior can affect the consequences associated with breaking a Commandment.
    .
    Have a Nice Day.
