Not if you go to the bottom line.PauloL wrote: ↑Sun Jul 09, 2017 10:50 pmGreatest, I thank you very much for your compliments and am happy that you liked my answer.
I read yours carefully and find it very interesting indeed and deep, too.
Gnostic Christian quote is wonderful.
In fact, cancelling gravity would be a never-ending exception incompatible with the existence of the Universe (and life).
Philosophy doesn't give final answers, and we'll never know (in life at least) if evil is really a necessity of life, but we can argument forever and refine our thoughts and vision.
All we are are sophisticated intelligent animals.
All animals that we know of cooperate when possible and compete when necessity forces them to do so.
Cooperation does not create losers or victims.
Competition does create losers who would see their loss as evil.
Survival of the fittest says that we must all either cooperate and compete to survive. Take competition, and doing evil to the losers out of the equation and we will go extinct.
That is the bottom line as I see it.
