    Correct, now you're catching on. Apathy has nothing to do with this topic. This topic is about the power of love vs. the power of hate.

    I still believe in the power of love being ultimately more powerful than hate.

    Hate may be everywhere but it can't totally eradicate the little delicate flowering of love that can crop up in even the worst of circumstances.

    The only way to eradicate hate is to take away the benefits from it that humans love.

    I don't really think of love as delicate, it's a kind of strong steady force. Love of brother, love of mother, child. Love of music, love of art. It's a constant. Hate burns fierce and short.

    False.

    You've limited yourself to a concept that's not relevant to this discussion; though I'm sure well intended. Sure yeah, love is the opposite of apathy in regards to caring vs. not caring; so what? What does that have to do with this thread? Look at the context of what you're saying vs. what the OP said. Now look at all of the facts...

    Fact: love *is* the opposite of hate, but then Love has many opposites doesn't it? Why?...

    Class, let's open our dictionaries to 'love'; notice love is a verb, love is a noun, and there are several definitions. For clarification, the OP is talking about love as a noun (intense emotion or "powerful" force; as in, "the force of love"), not love as a verb (caring for someone). Are you following the simple logic?

    For grins, let's compare love to its opposites:
    LOVE AS A VERB: love (caring for someone) vs. apathy ( )
    LOVE AS A NOUN: love (intense positive emotion) vs. hate (intense negative emotion)...or the object or force that possesses the emotion; such as, "God is love; therefore, love is the most powerful force in the universe."

    Just throwing this out there...
    Notice in books like the Bible, there are references to love and hate in the same sentence (as opposite ends of the spectrum).

    I hope that helps put things in their proper perspective.

    ^ Umm, what? I was just making a side note (referred to as Ne). I already said in my first post that I think love and hate are equally powerful.

    Correct. Did you notice your side-note got replicated one time too many in the last two days? I decided to pull the plug.

    So the question I am curious about is whether you personally believe love or hate is the more powerful force in this world. I am interested in your viewpoint whether it comes from life experience, personal philosophy, or religious reasons.

    Hopefully it can end up being a fun discussion!

    I personally believe love is more powerful than hate. I also think that both are a choice you make until the choice makes you.
    How do you measure power?

    What are you the thread police? I still think apathy is the opposite of love (and hate). If you disagree with me that's fine.
