50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind - #36

Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

No, I don't think so. I think there are too many shades of gray in life that good and evil aren't as clear cut.

It's too easy to say "killing is wrong, people who kill are evil" but what about that person in an abusive relationship that's just had enough and kills his or her partner? What about governments still using the death penalty? Is any of that evil or is some of that good?

It's a pretty basic answer for such a complicated question, but it's another one of the philosophical questions that you and I could sit down and debate this over a bottle of wine.
