I agree with Christina in that there are no great universal truths out there. And it's obvious that humans are not a priori aware of such truths due to differing beliefs and acceptances in different cultures. I beleive concepts of Good and Evil are entirely man-made. Before man formulated such notions, they did not exist. There's no right or wrong to a bear killing and eating a rabbit. So how did Good and Evil arise from nothing? We invented them! Be careful not to confuse "that which harms" and "that which enhances" with synthetic, lofty concepts of Good and Evil. And if there is a higher power who has defined universal truths, it was quite cruel of him to withold these truths from us, his beloved creations. What kind of sadistic God do you worship?
