Your ignorance is showing mate. In the animal kingdom, it is kill or be killed. In the human race's evolution it was often kill or be killed. It still is. You are expressing naïve fairy tail wishes that ignore the reality of life, evolution and the basic instincts of all living things to do anything to survive. Of course evil exists, just as goodness in some areas exists. One of my Shih Tzu's is a toy, she is small, loving to us in the house, and a joy to be with. But to strangers she can be vicious and nasty. Why? Simple. survival. She protects us and herself because that aids her own survival. I have no doubt that small as she is, she would fight to her death to defend her right to survive. That is all you need to know about humans as animals, it is pictured in her behaviors. You can tell you are not a military man. Nothing wrong in that, but at least recognize that Military people have a whole different approach and perspective on good and evil, death and killing , than you do and it is that very set of differences that provide and allow you your safety and freedom.
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.
