there is no such thing as evil, the concept is backward and used to explain anything unpalatable - a bit like god

I which case there is no such thing as good, justice, love etc. I suspect that deep in the human mind there are some things that inherently wrong and some that are right (to humans). Evil might be a human concept or invention (along with good) but it is real to those who experience it. Let us hope PP never comes across it.

Though all is chaos the human mind gives it form

dualistic morality has been a handy way of subjugating the masses and probably will remain so but i dont see any reason to propagate it here

and your last sentence looks a bit like some of that magick/chaos rubbish - are you then some kind of wizard?

Unlike you mr PP I do not wind people up for the sake of it, we are both entitled to opposing points of view. In reality I do not have a clue as to how the world I live in works and I am certainly not into new age mysticism or magic. I do how ever concede that for some people such things, along with religion work. (but not for me)

From where I sit a lot of things are random and as far as I can see it is the human mind's need to understand and control this randomness that drives it forward (or backwards). Oppressing the masses often comes into it.

I of course may be wrong as may you.

Seriously, D.I.N.G......Anyone? Surely you are out there? I'm not alone on Carl Sagans little blue dot, have I been lied to all these years?

I don't know about other archaeologists being evil, but I did run out of road pin mushrooms today and so we had to resort to impaling puppies on the top of them instead

Right back atcha PP! It's good to be put through my paces and have rational folks around to point out a faulty thought process when it's happening. Being wrong's a valid way of learning. And every now and again, I make a half-decent point... :face-approve:
