If you believe in the idea of good and evil (instead I like to use 'helpful' and 'harmful', though they still have their limitations) you need to make a distinction between the intention and the result.

It is probably unlikely that someone has never done anything bad in their life. Everyone should have done one good and one bad thing in their lifetime. So it is essentially impossible to do only good in your life and no bad in your life. People should be able to understand that good and bad deeds are done in life.

Since my opponent didn't respond, I claim a win. Good and evil are closely related. There is no escaping it.

So you are of the opinion that evil would not be needed for good to be done?
