I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want. Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything. If you want to...

1. What defines right?
2. What defines wrong?
3. What, if anything, lay between those two?

My standard wise-ass answer:

A dictionary would suffice for questions 1 and 2...and in the ispell english language dictionary, there are 11173 words between 'right' and 'wrong', non-inclusive of the endpoints.

Doesn't it depend on what's going on and what the subject matter is?
ugh...you had to ask me the difficult questions, didn't you?

  1. The philosophical answer is followed by a question...which philosophers theories do you follow? My feelings...I believe that what defines right and wrong for an individual is represented in one's heart...the things that define right and wrong for a society? That's a different story...and I would have to say that "right and wrong" in society is more driven by what the government or what the masses believe is ethically and morally right and wrong.
  2. Look at number 1...
  3. Grey area...unfortunately...the problem is that everyone has their own minds, their own thoughts and feelings. Simply stated, free-will...I believe I was told that is what differentiates people from other living beings...is we have self-awareness. We as a whole can decide what is right and wrong and it is not instinctual. For example, it is not "right" in societal standards to just randomly kill a person you don't even know if it was not in self-defense. The grey area is where one person would believe something is right and another person believes that it's wrong...who's right? No one. I guess what I am really trying to say is...there is really no right or wrong. It is really only defined by circumstances and the people involved, but nothing is truly set in stone. Is it right for a woman to be unfaithful to her husband? Now...doesn't it matter how that unfaithfulness came to arise? *shrug* The problem with attempting to define right, wrong, what is ethical or unethical leads to so many questions, so many possibilities...and quite honestly...very few answers.

hehe...I like these questions...the made me think...
