    I don't believe in evil. We are all human. If we don't want violence then we need to learn how to get along. Now is the time to learn. Violence leads to more violence. Within 50 to 100 years, it will likely lead to annihlation.

    Why that particular time frame? Don't you think it could happen a lot sooner than that? Don't forget, Bush will still be President for almost 4 more years. That's plenty of time to annihilate the human race, assuming he felt like doing that.

    I don't believe violence exists. We are all human. If we don't want evil, then we need to learn how to get along. Now is the time to learn. Evil leads to more evil.

    50 to 100 years is the timeframe when the balance of power will change in the world while America, as a nation, is seen to promote violence, be arrogant, have WMDs, etc.

    America has a chance to demonstrate responsibility and the pursuit of real peace.

    However, it is seen to focus its attention to regions where there is oil (while having some of the cheapest gasoline and biggest cars in the world) and having a leader who is corrupted by personal financial interests in pipe lines and military equipment manufacturers. Tell me I'm wrong and that there has been a thorough, independent, powerful and open investigation.

    violence leads to more violence depending on the poeple who fight. besides not all the human race will learn to get together. 4 thousands of years we've all been fightin each other. there's no doubt about that.

    Stan, I'll ask you again. Was Hitler evil?

    You may as well answer the question now or go away for several days or weeks until I forget this bit.
    No, Hitler was not intrinsically "evil"; he was a man who did evil things. When he was dong these unspeakably evil things, he wasn't thinking "I must do evil today"; he believed what he was doing was for the betterment of the human race. He believed that his people and culture were morally superior to all others and must be predominant in thie world. He was ready to kill millions of people to "protect" his country and expand its power and culture over the entire world.

    Sound familiar, Sasquatch?

    Wow, I wonder what hitler would have done had he actually
    been "Intrinsically" evil? Would we have been able to tell the differance?

    Besides, if you look at people like Hannabal Lector (I assume only
    a made up charactor but there are actually people like that for real)
    can't you define him as "intrinsically evil"?
    You think you can maybe talk him out of cannabalism?
    Or what about Idi Amin? That dude has to be as close to the
    definition of intrinsically evil as you can find. It almost sounds like
    you are denying the concept of evil itself. If it walks like a duck,
    quacks like a duck.....

    Not soon enough as far as every other living thing on this planet is concerned.

    Maybe this is how Mother Nature planned it....

    There are no evil persons only evil deeds. And they come from a sick and twisted mind instead of an evil one.
    A lot of the time you cant even blame the sick person for his evil deeds because its probably not his faut that he became sick in his head.

    Silly, don't you know mother nature gave us brains so we could work out how best to annihilate each other. We're a temporary measure in her grander scheme of things, much like self dissolving stitches.

    Do you think she will fix your spirit with a dash of lemmings on the rocks?
