Yes, these two energies exist. That's why we keep on balancing our life because we know that good and evil are two forces that need balancing.

No, labeling something as either"good" or"evil" does not always consider all of the information involved, and is subjective. Something that is"evil" to me, might be"good" to someone else etc.

Actually there many types of personality disorders, (borderline, anxious, schizoid...) If we tend to call someone he is so bad he is evil by doing something he thinks it is okay but for us is not doesn't make him evil, let's consider you hate socialising and you have a partner, that partner would hate for not being available even if you do nothing, but that partner should accept your introversion because it is you, your perdonality is not something bad neither good, everything is as it is.

There was a time in history where people believed that things such as slavery, eugenics, apartheid and the holocaust were good, yet we now believe that they are evil.

Good and evil is not determined by an"energy", it is determined by what society decides to be good and evil based on the ideology of the time.

Then who determines what is Good and what is Evil, and off of what criteria?

I think the answer to that will fall on what you believe in. For me, the criteria will be based on the teachings of the Bible.

They do. Whatever it is that harm other people and yourself, might be evil. I don't know. I am still bound with what my parents had taught me.

I consider a person an evil if he is intentionally lying, hurting and deceiving others. Any act that will harm others is evil.

I totally agree. If you are hurting people just for the mere purpose of hurting, yes, you are doing evil works.

Good and evil do exist. Our conscience dictates which is which.

Of course. We see it all around everyday.

They do exist. In every thought and in every action, it is either evil or good that prevails.

You can so obviously see this just by watching the news everyday.

Yes, everyday of our lives, we decide whether we do good or evil. It is a conscience call.

Dark and light, happy and sad, evil and good. They all exist.
