I long for freedom, and when I get it, I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I will surely be happy.

-Our entire lives we've been taught there are two kinds of people,good people and bad people..

-Good people,honest,generous and kind help others,give more than they take,love and forgive unconditionally,and no matter how hard their lives are,they will always get a happy ending,they'll win..

-Bad people,liars,cheaters,cheap sleazy and mean will always be punished at the end,no matter how good their lives get,eventually they'll suffer from the consequences.

-religious people are good,people who don't believe in god are bad,no matter how nice they seem to be,even people who believe,you can't trust all of them!

So growing up with this dysfunctional idea of what is good and what is bad,we naturally get shocked by reality,here is what I have learned about good and evil:
-Believe it or not,you can rarely be able to categorize people into good and bad,there are no two sides fighting for eternity!there are no good smurfs and bad Gargamel! people are mixes of their good instincts and their bad ones,good people cheat,lie and act like jerks sometimes! bad is not a monster we need to find and fight it is inside each and every one of us,and that is what they don't tell you,you have to know for yourself and fight it..

-Good people don't always get what they deserve,in fact,my observations indicate the exact opposite,the more you do bad the more rich and successful you'll be,but of course happiness is a choice,and for most people being good gives more happiness than money and success (I hope!)

-Worst generalizations ever are the ones made about religions,being good and bad in my opinion has nothing to do with religion,it is true that the thought of the after life provides a motivation,but a true good person does not really need it to be good,he is good because it is human to be good!

What's the point of all the trouble I had to go through to find these things out?when are we gonna start looking at things in a realistic way and stop lying to our kids?
I'm just wondering...and blabbing..

Have a good day.

I am glad reading your post, because it surpasses many of the ignorant claims that atheists need to put up with. Many theists claim that goodness cannot exist without the divine word of God to say what is good and what is not.

Or that without hell and heaven, people have no reason to be good. As Einstein puts it: "If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed."

And it's not only that for every person there is a good and bad side... To every action there is a good and bad side... The Yin-Yang principle if you're familiar with it!

سراج الماضي said...

والله يارين
هل تعرفي ماهي المشكلة؟؟ انه الناس جعلوا أنفسهم كآلهة من دون الله على الأرض
فالكل أصبح يحدد من هو الجيد والسيء
ونحن جميعاً كلنا عيوب
يجب ان نفهم أن من يحاكم ويحاسب الناس هو الله سبحانه وتعالى ولا أحد غيره
وطبعاً هذا لا يتعارض مع تطبيق القوانين

في النهاية لا يوجد إنسان شر مطلق أو خير مطلق
بل كلنا مزيج بين هذا وذاك
الله يرحمنا جميعاً برحمته ويهدينا جميعاً للخير وطريق الحق

Well, it's not a football, but you get the gist of it. Now you can have a name for the concept that exists in your mind.

Assalamualikum Rain,

You are absolutely right. I am always fighting between good and bad. I hope Allah will always guide me to be GOOD, and to all Muslims too. Because we represents our religion.
