    Good and Evil are subjective terms. They have no intrinsic value. What you deem "evil", others may not. Hate to burst your bubble.

    What a fantastical statement made in a vacuum of reality and the facts.

    Let me ask you something Democrat; did you think that the UN coalition, using of course US Military might, had the right to expel Iraqis from Kuwait even though Saddam did nothing aggressive to the US?

    Wrong again; sending people into gas chambers and then burning their bodies to hide the evidence simply because of their religious faith is about as good a definition of evil as one can have and you would be hard pressed to find anyone regardless of background or belief who wouldn’t agree it is evil incarnate.

    But then, I don't spend every waking moment attempting to justify the unjustifiable and rationalize the irrational like some apparently do on this forum.

    Sometimes, things are actually as simple as black and white and as clear as the nose on your face; this being one of them.

    You fail to understand: There are some who would disagree with you. Your opinion may be in the massive majority, but some would see no "evil" in that at all.

    Okay, champ.

    You do realize that opinions vary by individual, correct? If so, this should not be a difficult concept to grasp.

    That's completely irrelevant. Most people think puppies are adorable, but some people do not. "Adorable", like "evil", is completely subjective. The fact is that there is no such thing as objective "evil".

    guess i misunderstood, is it what you said that is irrelevant or just the topic of evil in general

    Claiming something is evil doesn't progress the debate. It's like saying "I don't like Bush because he sucks."
