    I believe the good in myself outweighs the bad in myself. As for the world, I don't care all that much about things I don't control.

    If every living thing in the universe died would the good outweigh the bad?

    Just good enough to keep things going, but bad enough that the good has to struggle to stay ahead.

    It really depends quite a bit upon the moral implications of each individual.

    This thread has given me food for thought.

    I voted that I believed the good outweighed the bad but perhaps I would change my vote now that I've thought about it. I liked Qlip's response.

    If the good outweighed the bad, then God would not destroy us in the end. Which He will.

    I imagine good as a bright light and I imagine bad as a thing blocking out that light. I feel challenged by the bad in the world where I'd like to push back the curtains and light up the dark spaces; it's a big, heavy curtain.

    I don't like quantifying good and bad. They each serve their purpose and in the end good will triumph.

    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Define triumph if you will.

    As an individual, what are your moral implications?

    This is like asking if the hot in this world outweighs the cold.
