Good & Evil
What is the true concept of good and evil; right and wrong? What does it mean? What is the basis of morality? And who is to say it is truly correct? How are we to know what is truly ethical or unethical? Is it good because it is good, or is it good because we have been trained and conditioned to think so?
In contemporary American (predominantly Christian) society many laws and morals are based upon an object of faith for many people, the bible. Why? Does that make it right?
Why is having sex outside of marriage bad? Why is having a child out of wedlock bad? Why is it bad to enjoy pleasure? Why are we made to feel guilty for following our instincts and desires? Why should we deny ourselves?

About BipolarChick (599 posts)
I’m a thirty-something bipolar woman, an advanced tech agent with a pay tv provider, tax preparer for a local charity, current Tulsa inhabitant, and I’m one credit shy of an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts. I’m working on recovery from self-injury and working toward stabilizing my bipolar symptoms. Recovery is very important to me. I’ve been mostly single the past few years and plagued by a seemingly never-ending series of jackasses, assholes, and married men. I have no children of my own, but I have lots of nieces and nephews I love to spoil.
