    but in the end, a lot of people are in it for themselves. Which is where the basis for this whole problem lays.
    We're all in it for ourselves.

    For instance: You may preach to others about morality because you genuinely care about others' well-being. However, YOU are the one who cares. Caring for others gives you comfort. Thus, you are fulfilling your own selfish desires by being selfless.

    Life is a rat race, no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Never mind, then.
    I am serious. In a way..

    This whole thread is completely serious.

    But it's alright, I guess I didn't consider the fact that people may take it different ways. Sorry if I was mean, too, I feel bad for grumpin' around.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I'm not in denial. And I'm not excluding myself.

    It's okay. I feel bad, too. I shouldn't have called you out in your own thread.

    I mean, you were looking for a particular response and no one was getting it. That could be frustrating.

    I suppose looking back now, it seems like what you were really asking was, "What kind of things do we see as evil, and what is the purpose of it?" rather than "What causes us to see things as evil?" I mean, the latter could easily be construed as being a frame of mind, but it doesn't tell us what it means.

    So since we mostly responded with varying degrees of sophism about the nature of good and evil, when you wanted an answer that was relevent in context of the assumption that the concept of evil had an inherent meaning that could tell us about human nature, it was bullshit.

    That's all assuming human evolution were reality^. Where's the skeletal ape/human remains?
