What would be considered as good?
Is killing someone for the sake of another considered good or evil?
Is lying to a parent to protect your friend evil or good?
Would you put yourself in harms way to protect your friend? If you didn't would that be good or evil?
Is robbing someone to give to the needy a good or evil thing?

I'm sure we've all had similar questions when deciding on what to do.
Who is it to judge what we do is evil?
Is it the law? Is it God? Is it ourselves?
Who truly determines what's good and what's evil?

What would be considered as good?
I 'think what would be considered 'good, Is
What Tradition/Society says is good
What the simpler intuitions of a human say is nice/happy/worth/feels
What when we look at 'apparent 'laws in the universe that seem bigger than societies laws say are right, For logical or feeling reasons.

Is killing someone for the sake of another considered good or evil?
Some would say yes, Some would say no. I think it's a gray and semantic area.

Is lying to a parent to protect your friend evil or good?
People take different sides on this one as well I think. I think it's a gray and semantic area.

Would you put yourself in harms way to protect your friend? If you didn't would that be good or evil?
I don't know. It'd be good or evil according to different viewpoints, I think.

Is robbing someone to give to the needy a good or evil thing?
I don't know. It'd be good or evil according to different viewpoints, I think.

Who is it to judge what we do is evil?
I think us, Since I don't believe there to be anyone else.

Is it the law? Is it God? Is it ourselves?
I think the law is one of the methods we use. We revere the law and traditions, Follow precedents. But we also break them and forge anew.
I myself do not believe in God.
I also think it to be ourselves, We made our laws after all, From my point of view.

Who truly determines what's good and what's evil?
Whoever's around.

Can't say much, But you managed to contradict yourself, And mostly repeated yourself
Who is it to judge what we do is evil?

Who truly determines what's good and what's evil?
Whoever's around.

What is considered evil?
Who gets to determine what you did is truly good or evil?
Is it yourself? Is it society?

Consider this situation and tell me if it'd be considered good or evil.
Your friend is someone that can't handle the truth. It's necessary to tell them the truth. It may do them more harm if they don't get the truth. Would you tell them the truth?

Whatever people call evil.

Whoever's around.

Is it yourself? Is it society?
Both.

Consider this situation and tell me if it'd be considered good or evil.
Your friend is someone that can't handle the truth. It's necessary to tell them the truth. It may do them more harm if they don't get the truth. Would you tell them the truth?


I'd like a more specific example, But 'I think, And think most 'others would also think
That it would be good to tell them the truth. If someone's zipper is undone, It's better to tell them even if it embarrasses them a bit. They'll be 'more embarrassed the later they notice.
If you think a friend is marrying a bad person, It's better to tell them what you think. Though even better to say also that they are your friend and you will always be there for them.
Even if people are not likely to appreciate it, It seems better to try. Better to do right by them.

Basically we define good and bad whatever the f*ck we want it to be. Even if we appeal to some sort of objective standard it would fail given we would need a standard to verify the standard we are currently. Given self-evidence isn't actually evidence we work with what we have. I would say happiness is the only goal we have but I can't say for sure given we can't really know for sure.

I guess society is the one who defines what"s good and evil. When we donate to a good cause, It"s a good deed. But if a person kills someone who is evil, Is the person good or bad? That"s why there"s always a split in opinions from society.

I define good and evil as such:
Good is when an action created the most pleasure for the most amount of people.
Evil is when this is violated
Pleasure is not just sexual or physical, But also emotional, Internal, And Intelligentical well-being, Happiness, Enjoyment. . .
