It is impossible to perform an act that is truly evil or truly good.
I am not even talking about personal motivation I am talking about perspective.
Any act that anyone performs will be thought of as good by some and evil as others.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24894804


Do you believe that Hitler and his followers thought they were performing acts of evil?
In his followers minds they thought he was performing a great service to the German people.
To this day there are people who believe what Hitler did was good.
Personally I think he was a douche and delusional, but not everyone shares my view so not everyone views his actions as evil.
If it is not agreed by everyone that he was evil then it is a viewpoint and not a fact.
Facts do not change from viewpoint to viewpoint, real facts are accepted by all when they see them.

Marc Dutroux the serial killer?
There are people in the world who think serial killers are great, they buy memorabilia, trading cards and actually memorize their biographies.
I think serial killer fans are sick, but the fact stands some people think they are great.
So again we see opinions of what is good and evil, or cool and sick.

Re: It is impossible to perform an act that is truly evil or truly good.
The OP is correct, but it makes people uncomfortable.

[polar vision is when] the basic pairs of opposites, the positive and the negative, are seen as the different poles of a single magnet or circuit. This knowledge is repressed in any culture that accentuates the positive, and is thus a strict taboo. It carries Gestalt psychology, which insists on the mutual interdependence of figure and background, to its logical conclusion in every aspect of life and thought; so that the voluntary and the involuntary, knowing and the known, birth and decay, good and evil, outline and inline, self and other, solid and space, motion and rest, light and darkness, are seen as aspects of a single and completely perfect process. The implication of this may be that there is nothing in life to be gained or attained that is not already here and now, an implication thoroughly disturbing to any philosophy or culture which is seriously playing the game which I have called White Must Win.

That's bullshit.

You've done something shitty and you're trying to clear your conscience with this mumbo jumbo..I get it, but it's still bullshit all the same.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

tard very good poindexter!

therefore, there can be no "good" for everybody, without one God to say what is good. it's a reference point.

therefore, everyone who disagrees with God is evil. and, to those people, God is evil.

next question!

can you have good without evil? evil without good? what is good? what is evil?

Well lets take something simple like religion and define if the religion is good or evil.
We will use one of the most common themes we use to identify good and evil: Killing.
The Christian religion is famous for the crusades which saw a lot of killing.
Does that make the Christian religion evil?
The Buddhist religion has no real history of violence does that make Buddhism good?

Re: It is impossible to perform an act that is truly evil or truly good.
Notice how uncomfortable this simple truth makes everyone.

It is important to remember, however, that even though there is no "absolute" good or evil, for practical purposes in day-to-day life, we need these concepts simply to operate our social systems.

What the OP is talking about is valid philosophically, but it is not really very useful information on a practical level and can even be destructive, which is why he is getting such negative reactions.

Re: It is impossible to perform an act that is truly evil or truly good.
OP here are some good examples of how cultural influences have shaped the way in which those cultures have viewed and reacted to certain actions.

Suicide bombers. To much of the world the act of blowing yourself up in an attempt to kill/harm others can be viewed as a barbaric and 'evil' act. However within the confines of certain cultural/religious influences, that same act may be viewed by certain individuals as noble & heroic.

Human sacrifice to the 'Gods'. When we read about the Mayan ball game and how human sacrifices were made with the 'captain' of the losing team being beheaded, many may view that act as barbaric and inhumane, and as a punishment. But to the Mayan the act of surrendering one's life to the 'Gods' may very well have been viewed in a positive and prestigious context.

Was it the ancient Greeks where it was accepted for men to have sex with boys in the bath houses? I am personally repulsed by the thought of this but I'd imagine back then it was culturally accepted for this type of behavior to transpire, however much of the people alive in the world today would understandably be disgusted by such a practice. But back then people would not have reacted in a similar matter.

What some will fail to understand is that this conversation is not about what is universally 'right' or 'wrong' but how societal and cultural factors influence how and why we are inclined to have certain reactions to specific acts or events. I have a strong interest in human psychology so this subject matter interest me greatly.

I arrived at this point simply through studying human psychology, and in particular this very forum.
This is a breeding ground of some of the most close minded people I have ever had the honor of communicating with and it led me to the question why is everyone so close minded(myself included)?
I see people on here with a wide range of perceptions which usually and naturally fall into conflict.
A lot of very intelligent people who spend most of their time arguing about ideas that once objectively studied do not even seem to pertain to "reality".
It all boils down to one giant debate about philosophy which in itself is a dead end field of study, or psychology which at least leads us to better understand ourselves.
But everyday we push on either trying to convert or understand people and how they think.
