I absolutely DO NOT agree with this quote. That's the same kind of crap quote like, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger". It's not always about perception. Sometimes things are really horribly bad and sometimes things are awesomely good, but seeing the glass half full for the good and half empty for the bad doesn't always work. If it was always about great attitude no one would get divorced or be thrown in jail or die...etc.

Of course you know that any attempt to criticize Palin will only cause her and her supporters to say it's an unfair attack by the "liberal media" - 'cause they're always out to get'cha! *wink* As for your comment about Blacks being the only real Americans left, somehow I think the Native Americans would like to have a word with you about that...

good or bad is a value judgment passed by other people or our society. if we have a standard of what is good and what is bad, the judgment is there. However, there is no way to live without a list of standard to protect ourselves. Many people do not believe in other's list but their own experience. Then, it is the one who do not believe gets hurt. An example for your paper. There's nothing would happen if you drink 10 can of beer in one day. You learn it is bad though. However, after a year, your liver be damaged then you realize that beer drinking is bad. You want to pass this message to other person. You would just let them know that beer is harmful. But, who has the experience and agree you ? Whoever experience it do not need your advice. Those who had no experience will say that this is nothing either good or bad but personal experience...

I think there is a deeper question below this one which defines how you respond to this one. Do you accept 'value judgements' as real or are you a materialist (believing that all thoughts and judgements are arbitrary and deceptive essentially). Good and evil are meaningless adjectives subjectively applied, or else they have a deeper truth. The Marquis de Sade believed that good and evil were meaningless, yet when he was imprisoned complained about the unfairness of his treatmen.I feel that we have a definite moral sense beyond animals and that our moral judgement is more sound than we imagine.

Good and bad does exist, you can tell by the bad things that happen in this world, people do bad things and good things, we all think bad things and good things. I disagree with this quote, because no matter how u perceive something it is going to be good, bad or just normal. You may think hunting animals is a bad thing, but that doesn't stop other people from thinking its fun and a good thing. Our conscience plays a major role on what we perceive to be good and bad. So to rewrite that quote, i would say "Everything is good or bad, how you think or feel designates which side your one" or something along those lines.

Ya, I agree. But it's only human to assign values to everything and those values have to do with survival, survival being the basis of not just human life but any life anywhere. And there's something to be said of that because if survival acts as God preserving his creation, then there has to be a certain amount of life forms assigning the value of survival to themselves and other life forms which even includes animals and sub-human life forms. Only animals don't think as completely and thoroughly as humans and only just partially, so their assigning survival values is done instinctively and not deliberately from thinking about life.

True. The words "good" and "bad" are labels we use to describe our personal preferences about the past and the future. Nature left to itself will do what is possible regardless.
