Je Vous Dis, Merde! 42: Evil, God, Radical Agnosticism, and Politics
Mr Nemo

The only coherent solution is obvious to a radical empiricist — there is no evil. Neither is there not-evil, nor is there neither evil nor not-evil, nor both evil and not evil. The same circularity that prevents a coherent justification for forming a view about 3-O God or not-3-O God plagues all dualistic accounts of the world. All phenomena is empty of inherent meaning, essence or substance, including concioussness, so any meaning or attribution attached to particular phenomena by a given observer is entirely dependent upon the existing views of that particular observer. Phenomena is neither good nor evil because phenomena doesn’t have self unless a conscious observer imbues it with such. The tighter a person clings to views of any kind, the more biased their observations, the more entrenched their views, and the the deeper their delusion of selfhood. The questions about the beginning and the end, and about God and Satan, and good and evil are, and have been since the dawn of civilization, truly about the latent tendency for conscious beings to attach to an identity view of self, forfeit impartiality, and drown in desire induced delusions concerning the existence of an essential, enduring, autonomous self. Remove the ignorance introduced by attachments to views, the delusion of duality evaporates, and with it every kind of paradox discovered by mankind.
