    Life is full of regrets, which is okay, as long as they aren’t yours.

    That depends on the nature of the good & bad. Churchill was an obnoxious drunk, but on the balance I would say he did far more good that bad. Hitler was vegetarian and was good with animals…

    Great discussion with my high school classes – half way through, changed “deeds” to “grades…”

  4. Scott Booth says:

    Neither is better or worse; one seems to be more active. In either case, ones good deeds never negate the bad.

    Evil isn’t a thing, but absence of good. (Like darkness is just absence of light; you can’t shine darkness into a room.) Thus, evil doesn’t “cancel out” good the way good cancels out evil.
