Exactly, so it's easy to see that an event can be good for one person, and bad for another (in other words "relative").threewood14 wrote:goodness is something that will work for someones benefit or something that someone can give to another's benefit.
It's got nothing to do with relativity.

I don't believe that truth changes with people's perceptions of it.
I also believe that the majority of the civilized and educated world will disagree with me.
Religious people are probably more likely to believe in absolute right, wrong, and truth and all that good stuff.
I believe in God but in a different way I guess.

And if he's found not to be strong enough, wash him out with flood or throw him into fire? What a loving God he is!

Just wondering, have you read Goethe's Faust?
If God created everything, is omniscient, and is omnipotent, then He must have known all of the possible ways to create a universe.

Yes, I think you are right there benissimus. I know klewlis and Keesa are religious and they both voted for yes and Barrius also seems to be religious. So it greatly depends on wether you believe in God or not. I won't start another debate on religion here, as we've already had one.
But judges are there to try and find out who is lying and who isn't...
