Cgwam

Pro

I'd like to debate the essence of good and evil and it's potential non-existence as an independent entity. I argue that good is not a constant and can not exist as a solo entity.
I like to debate with a con who can prove me wrong that good is indeed it's on constant and can stand as an independent factor .

What is good can only be determined by what is bad and likewise what's bad can only be determined by what is good. Hence when we say what is good we in essence can say what is not bad( which summarizes most of the theories ethics provides us). But then what is bad? Is it not just an opinion based on the the viewer. A man is killed in the field yet his dead body is used to fertilize the plants. From it life springs forth. Was the murder therefore bad ( looking from the mans perspective) or good ( looking from the perspective of organisms that thrived from it) ? If that's true who's to determine the perspective in which we measure all deeds?

Dumb,dumb,dumb.There are evil activities all over the world, all the time.Stealing,killing and destroying .To take what is not yours without the owners permission is evil. That would include welfare.Killing another because they would be a nuisance to you is evil. That would be abortion.And on and on and on.
