Hi Craig Weinberg  

So what's good for one may be evil for another. 
No surprise there. That's why an overriding 
referee or judge (God) is necessary.

Hi Craig Weinberg  

CRAIG: Enhance whose life though?  

ROGER: Anybody's life. 

Disinfectants destroy microbiotic life. 
  


CRAIG: Would slavery Good or Evil?  

ROGER: The masters diminish the life of the slaves. 
The slaves have their lives diminished.  So there's 
no good in it at all.  

The slaves enhance the lives of their masters. Their masters have their lives 
enhanced. So there's as much good in it as not. 
  


CRAIG: What about promiscuity or dessert or yeast?  

ROGER: Promiscuity diminishes the value of love and commitment, 
    hence of life. I have no opinions on dessert or yeast. 

Promiscuity without contraception enhances the number of pregnancies.  If you 
have no opinion on the others, does that mean that they don't fit into the 
good/evil dichotomy? 



CRAIG: Is cell division good or evil?  
I would say that growth of healthy cells is goog because they enhance life. 
And growth of cancer cells is evil or bad because they can cause death. 


Cancer cells enhance their own life.

A Theology for Atheists  

There are two opposing forces in the universe, those which enhance  
life, which we call Good, and those which diminish life, which we call Evil.

Who determines what 'enhanced' or 'diminished' means?  




As evidenced, these can be present in both happenings and in people.    

We have the freedom to support either cause or not support one.  


Don't we support both at all times, just by being alive?

A Theology for Theists  

The same holds as above, with the addition that there is some  
overriding intelligence which causes the happenings, good or  
evil, either preferably or acceptably. It can also read and/or inform  
our hearts.
