Note: I made the poll for the lurkers, everyone else just post, because the poll is limited in choices.

I choose option 3 for both

If your not going to say anything constructive (criticism or complement) then don't say anything, I said it was limited, I created it for the lurkers.

Evil is nothing. Don't confuse that with nothing being evil. Evil simply doesn't exist. There are but actions, and what we make of those actions is subject to interpretation. Eating kittens to survive is, to some, evil, but once again, it is simply an action. Western culture maintained that slavery was acceptable for a long time, but today's society finds it absolutely reprehensible.

As I feel that Humans are naturally "evil", although I prefer "flawed"*, no I don't want a world without evil. Besides, then I wouldn't be able to eat kittens.

EDIT: If you're not going to make a good poll, don't bother. Same goes with posts and threads.

I believe that evil is a matter of opinion, god said in the bible "kill the men, but keep the women and virgins for yourselves" to christans, satan is evil, but to satanic people, god is evil, for example is shooting someone who is running away from you evil? Well lets say the person was wielding an already bloody pipe and was screaming and running towards another person. Some people think that killing cockroaches is evil, while other people hate them and put them in the micro wave.

So, soldiers in Iraq are the same as satanic people?

The soldiers mean to cause harm, yet would you say they are evil?

If there was no evil in the world, I wouldn't exist. That is all.

This poll is evil.

I would like to see a world without it.

Users should be able to select multiple options for the first question, disregarding how ambiguous it seems.
-----
People, you're taking someone's mistake and making it even less constructive. "Evil" isn't easily defined, as with any abstract noun. However, it's rather safe to say that all humans are evil at heart.

As Nicothodes suggested, pretty much any human achievement on this earth is the result of some sort of "evil." Life, yet another abstract noun, seems impossible without it. Whether you beleive in an afterlife or not, being on this earth would be without any kind of purpose if not for "evil." However, in discussing such topics, one must present their definition of the subject. In this case, I find it analogous to the relationship between hot and cold; evil simply being the lack of good intention.

Well, if you define seeing what the other side has to say as them taking the poll, becoming as annoyed as we are, and then further fanning the flames, then I reckon you'd be correct.

This topic is evil, and I am intentionally causing it harm.
