One cannot be selfish and selfless at the same time. It is like being dead and alive. If you act purely selfishly then how can you do anything selflessly. You claimed to act purely selfishly, so either you lied about that or you lied about taking other people's pain.

the only thing that we view as right is what is somewhat morally but mostly socially acceptable. Certain thoughts and beliefs that have been ingrained in us since birth just as our parents and so forth. There is no right or wrong. To kill is not wrong, or right. It is nature. When we kill cows or dogs or whatever is it wrong? No ofcurse not they're just animals right? Yes and so are we. We live in a life where uncertainty is the precedent. If someone were to kill your best friend is he wrong. Obviously you would say yes but you would indeed be blinded by emotion just as you are now

So it is best to just accept all actions equally?

I was hoping someone would get to that. "In nature their are no rewards or punishments, only consequences." You've heard that before right? Each action has a consequence. Now, I'm not saying everything is equal, some consequences are greater than others but a consequence is a result of equal action.

So if another Hitler like person comes up we should simply let him do his thing?

Well should we? I would say no. Because that would mean defying everything that we have been taught. Every belief we have was given to us and while we may think one way, others may not

also, Nobody likes death, I may not belief it's right or wrong but I wouldn't want any race of people or one person for that matter die. Life is one of the greatest gifts given and shall only be taken by those who are worthy. A neo-hitler would never be worthy.

But to say no would mean acting against what may just be the next stage of our humanity. People will fight for right or wrong but who would fight for indifference?

Granted yes but as I said, people believe different things, just as I do. I may not find morality in death but I would stand against such a power just as many others would, along with those who support it. Death sall hold no place in my life nor have a reason to.

we should not let him if we dont want to. just beacuse something isnt wrong doesnt mean we have to let it happen, why do we need just cause for action? right and wrong?

and i dont believe in god. he does. if i said "god" that would impress my beleiving of him. i dont.

Because taking someone else's pain requires hurting yourself for their benefit and not your own. It is selfless to give up your health for the good of another.

ethereal, you have claimed that right and wrong are absolutes, then you answer that SOME killings can be just. if this is so, then they are by no means absolute.

Incorrect. Murder is always wrong. Punishment for murder being death is not murder it is just punishment.
