What is good and bad? Thoughts.
I think that non existence was never a reality, for if the world had been total nothingness at one point, it must have always remained in this state of total nothingness, for nothing doesn't have an ability to create.

I don't believe that nothingness can suddenly change into something, for even this word "suddenly" implies TIME. Time isn't nothing!,

I see no good reason to believe that non-existence exists. And if someone claims that it does: even if it does exist, we need not to concerne about it, for nothing can not affect us.
(The one exception to this: The fate of evildoers will end up being non-existence. Death. And that I believe is the worst fate to happen to someone! But still, who will exist in death to feel the badness of not existing?.)

IT seems that if evil is winning, like it is now on earth!, it will only be temporary, and changes are coming...
It's like an eclipse. The darkness can't last forever!, it only lasts for a while.

Some people say: "with no evil, it'd be meaningless to say that somethign is good", I disagree...

Because there may exist a state that contains no evil at all. "Health" is one of those states.

THEREFORE,

It seems that good can exist alone.

What about evil?

Maybe it is like Darkness. It's merely a lack of light. Darkness for sure exists! But, it seems like light exists "more". It's like darkness depends on light to exist. Because if there were no light, maybe there wouldn't even be darkness. We would simply see nothing, not even dark\black.

Also, can there even exist a flashlight that shines darkness? If so, why has no one invented one yet?

Just some stuff I've been thinking of. Hope that helps someone!

The opposite of good is bad.

The opposite of evil is righteous.

Good and bad things happen to people every day.

Evil and righteous things are just a matter of opinion.

Hope that clears things up for you.

I have just explained how bad is the lack of good.

So, it can't be the opposite.
Evil and righteous things are just a matter of opinion.

Hope that clears things up for you.

I guess that we should just take your word for it, then?

Where's your case? Where's your argument?

What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

Re: What is good and bad? Thoughts.
After all, is good and bad are just a matter of opinion, then we are justified to come to AC41363484's house and rob all of his money if we want to. In my opinion, it'd be cool if I had all of that money. And if AC doesn't agree, well, that's just the way he sees it. My opinion is equally as valid, anyways. None of them is objectively better than the other.

If someone is a sadist, then may somehow decide that they want to torture AC41363484's mom. And AC41363484 can't be angry about it, because the sadist didn't do anything wrong. AC can't say that that's a bad thing that the sadist did to his mom. Why should his opinion count more than the sadist's?

Surely, no one sane would believe in what AC is saying. No one would hold AC's opinions about the world. I don't think it's good to believe in such things!

So, in my opinion, good and bad things exist objectively. Seems to make more sense to me.

 Quoting: Goofy for God

Believe in what you want, we all have free will. That's up to you!

But,

1. You've offered no reason as to why we should believe in what you say. I guess you want us to just take your word for it?

But that isn't very good. I think if we're gonna accept something, we need a reason- an argument- and it better be a good one at that!

2. I don't understandd what does what you wrote have to do with my OP? You haven't adressed any of my arguments. Let's stick to topic here, guys!

Darkness is evil it blinds your eyes and it burns your skin
Lots of burning marks i have from going to the beach after dusk
I always wear my sunglasses at night
Also left hand is evil ive cut it off and replaced it with a hook
The sea is good i drink water from it every day
The sun is good i love to look straight at it for hours without end
Also living in a big city is good people are very kind to you and theres no competition not even for that last parking space
Boy oh boy what a beautiful world it is
