Sanctity of life is inherent knowledge that exists within every living creature. Using the intellect, however, one can invent reasoning with which to suppress that knowledge. And even refute it, as you have just done, Pinetree.
Sanctity of life has nothing to do with religion, other than religion recognizing the fact.
In truth there is no such thing in existence as evil. Therefore none are born evil. Though they can believe in it's existence and act out their idea of it. Evil is, like everything else, an idea. No doubt there are many, such as yourself - since you admitted it, who subscribe to the idea and believe it to be a rockbed truth or aspect of existence.
Why is it that outside of the human race no evil can be found? Isn't it interesting that the concept is only found to exist within our species? Wouldn't the fact that evil is found nowhere outside of ourselves make a light bulb go off in our heads that perhaps evil is nothing more than a human "invention?" Name me another living creature that believes in evil. I'll wait. Even if it takes a long time.
As long as one believes in evil then of course the ideas of confronting it and eliminating it will surely follow. That's only natural. And all manner of "evil" will then be used to counter this perceived "evil." Such as the "evil" of carpet bombing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians to counter the enemy's "evil."
LOL. It's so obvious that I can't believe you guys (Vigo) still don't get it.
And it's not possible. Evil is an idea. An idea is subjective. How would you then propose to eliminate the idea of evil, or for that matter any idea, when it doesn't even possess any solidity? The simple answer, though you might heartily protest, is that you can't.
What folks haven't gotten around to recognizing, at least by and large, is that we live in a world of ideas. We use ideas to create a three-dimensional reality, just as an artist uses paints to create a two-dimensional painting. There is nothing in our world which did not first exist as an idea.
