I'm a little uncomfortable that the subject of good vs. evil always seems to attract talk of god vs. not-god. We start talking about sources and prime-motivators without getting down to the actual humans who are actually doing the good and the evil. This to me is one of weaknesses of spirituality. Why do we need some external source that determines good and evil. My basic definition of good/evil comes down to selflessness vs. selfishness. Why bring superstition into it at all? view post
