What Is Evil?
What is evil ? Where does Evil Come from?

My opinion is that we derive it from reasoning, based on what has failed and flourished over the years from the results of societies. The less successful laws we found we could live without slowly left while the successful ones tend to be essential. This, to me, would be a moral.

Morality is/isn't subjective
"Morality is subjective." What proof do you have?

What keeps us from being wicked?
Virtue may be its own reward but what about those of us who choose vice over virtue. Vice can also be its own reward. I can think of plenty of things that aren't virtuous yet have a reward and will bring me lots of pleasure. If there are no consequences in this world for vice other then your own sense of morality, which is subjective, why then not engage in vice? For without absolute morality why should one not be an egoist?

I went to the deli next to our school today and ordered a green apple jones soda and peanut butter cups. I made sure to ask for a dollar's worth of change because I had to take the bus home. The lady gave my change and then a dollars worth in quarters. Being the quick head math whiz that I am, I told her she gave me an extra dollar and gave it back. The person behind me called me nice and said I was honest. The two guys behind her called me an idiot who wasn't going to get anywhere in this world.
I have my own stance on this but as many many people have complained to me, I'm an idealist and can't expect everyone else to be.
The question: Is it really so ridiculous to try and play an honest role in modern society?

Morality is the distinction between right and wrong. It is the determination of what should be done and what should not be done.
