Whether human existence is good or evil, depends on presence/ absence of the God.
Which is, humans are good if the God exists, and human existence is evil if the God doesn’t exist.
Since our mind and body are all relative, we only have relative things without the existence of God, and Pandora’s box opens from that relativity.
From that relativity, infinite confrontation and contradiction appear in the society.
In this case, human existence can be said as evil.
However, if the God is present, it means that human existence is good forever.
This leads us to the conclusion.
Human existence is good forever, and there are no other conclusions.
Because the God exists in front of you as universe.
Universe is the expression mind of God, and is the body of God: Shinji Takahashi
Human beings just don’t know that this vast universe in front of their eyes is the body of God, and the God himself.
If we deny the existence of God, equality will disappear from our world.
Therefore, we have to admit equality, and if we do so, we have to admit the existence of God at the same time.
Because there is only this equality.
All people have existence of the very same God in essence of their lives. On this point, we are all fully equal forever.
When you deny the existence of God, equality disappears.
Therefore, as no human beings can deny the vast universe in front of their eyes, no one can deny the equality, and the people who can deny the existence of God will disappear forever.
Because no one can deny.
Outside is vast universe, inside is equality, they can’t deny the existence of God inside or out.
Can you deny the existence of vast universe in the external world?
No, you can’t.
Then, can you deny the equality in the inner world?
No, you can’t.
Thus, there is no human being who can deny the existence of God.
As long as the God exists, human existence is good forever.
Although it may be free to deny the existence of God which is undeniable, in this case, human is evil, so no one will believe or love someone who think it’s evil.
When you regard human existence as evil, then you may not love or believe that person, and a society with distrust and suspicion will be made.
The world will not become better even if you aim at good.
If you think people is evil, you may not love nor believe them.
If you think people is good, you may love and believe them.
Although there may be a various immaturity in human’s side, as long as the God exists, basically, human existence is good.
There are no other conclusions.
Once, Konrad Lorenz, an ethologist in Australia, said “human being is the only kind that kills each other in the same kind”.
It is only human being who kill within its kind, ferociously in hundreds of thousands of numbers.
Human being is such an uncommon kind.
There are people who deduce this Lorenz’s word ideologically and connect to the ethical doctrine that human nature is fundamentally evil.
There are people who think human existence must be evil since it is only human being who perform such a ferocious killing within its kind in the nature world of food-chain, and connect to the ethical doctrine that human nature is fundamentally evil.
Look at the persecution and massacre by humans against humans in history for instance.
Pogrom in Russia, Auschwitz, Inquisition, Indian massacre, Khmer Rouge, Nanking Massacre, automatic genocide.
How empty the love for mankind and justice sound like.
Such brutality is possible because human existence is evil.
Since human existence is evil, human beings have killed each other ferociously, and are still killing each other, and will kill each other from now on.
Because human existence is evil.
If you think it’s not true, then try to verify the time of war and peace in human history.
There, the ferocious and warlike human nature is revealed and proved.
Human is evil.
There are no animals other than human beings who kill each other within its kind, in hundreds of thousands of numbers.
Although people often say to others, “that men is worse than a beast”, this is very rude for the beast.
They don’t kill such a number of compatriots, and they are desperate to raise their children.
Human existence is held in disgust in the nature world.
If there were no humans, nature, animals and plants would have worked a peaceful paradise together.
So, the human existence is “evil”.
By the way, recent zoology information shows that there are actual cases of same-kind killing in nature such as infanticide by monkeys and lions, sororicide/ fratricide by eagles, ovicidal acts by birds etc.
However, such disputant is not mentioning about the accuracy/ inaccuracy of such information.
By watching the result of conflict and destruction in history, if human life is truly good, there can never be a war or discordance in history.
If human is good, then the history colored with conflicts and destruction will become a lie.
Because human is evil, they lived under conflict and destruction, and are now living under change of climate and destruction of nature, and will live from now on.
Thus, the history proves the fact that human is evil.
Once, Mr. Shinji Takahashi, the first founder of the GLA, said in his book that the ratio of war and peace in human history is “7:3.”
In human history, time of war is “7” and only “3” is the time of peace.
If so, it seems as human history is proving that human existence is evil like the saying of a disputant of the ethical doctrine that human nature is fundamentally evil.
However, is human existence really evil?
Within the deeds of human beings which history shows, there are inadmissible conditions, unforgivable cases, and facts that must be reconsidered.
However, phenomenon of history can’t prove human life as good or evil.
If the ratio of war and peace that human beings have done toward the world from the past to the present is 7 to 3, why can’t we believe that human lives have their own power to transcend them?
Even if the ratio till now is war “7” to peace “3”, why can’t we believe that human lives have their inner power to change the history from now into the ratio of war “6” to peace “4”, war “5” to peace “5”, war “4” to peace “6”?
The heart of God dwell in each human being’s life, and the God is “infinite”, “eternal” and “absolute”.
The parent of human being is exactly this.
An infinite power named God that changes everything dwells in the life of each human beings.
Watching the miserable result of history under the status quo, to see the ratio of war and peace as 7 to 3, and to take it as a proof of human evil is equal to “idolatry”.
Life give birth to everything.
The world you can watch is the world of your heart: Kitaro Nishida
The whole history you can see is the growth process of heart of all human beings who sees.
By watching the result produced by our immature heart, it is arrogant to decide the very heart as evil.
Child of God is the people who believe in the heart of God inside himself/ herself and in life.
If the ratio of war and peace is 7 to 3 in history, make it 0 to 10 by the heart of God that exists inside of me closer than myself, and that power solemnly lies inside of my life; believer is the people who believe in such truth.
It can be said that human existence is good if you accept the power that lies inside life, and is evil if you don’t.
Human is good if the God exists, and is evil if he doesn’t.
On what grounds does such disputant deny the power of heart lying inside human’s life that changes 7 to 3 ratio to 0 to 10.
The truth that life is infinite is proved by the existence of God.
Then, what is the heart of God?
Since the fundamental essence that dwell in all people’s lives is the heart of God, that heart of God should be the only universal criterion of value for all human beings.
The universal criterion of good and evil that is suitable for all human beings in the past/ present/ future, is the heart of God.
Goodness that is a metaphor of God’s body, goodness that is a metaphor of substance, goodness that is a metaphor of ego, goodness that is a metaphor of benefit, goodness that is a metaphor of result, goodness that is a metaphor of phenomenon, and goodness that is a metaphor of pleasure, these are called as expedient goodness.
However, this expedient goodness can never be the universal criterion of value for human beings.
Once, Herbert Spencer, the ethicist of the evolution theory, said;
“Things that are called as sin today, were morality in the past era”
this is the expedient goodness.
If you argue good and evil from the expedient goodness viewpoint, those good and evil will freely run around the coordinate axis of time and space.
Like human body keep repeating metabolism every moment, and body cells always develop change and movement without stagnation, the expedient good and evil also hates to stop, and destroys the invariability.
More specifically, values of good and evil will change spontaneously by geopolitical positional change of “space” such as existence of humans and nations, or by the passage of “time”.
From “time” viewpoint, it is the difference of revenge between more than 300 years ago and today.
300 years ago in Japan, act of revenge was called vengeance and was a moral fine deed to protect one’s honor.
However, if you put vengeance into practice today, it is only a murder and a crime.
With just 300 years passing, things once were good becomes evil.
Values of good and evil have turned upside down.
As Spencer says, vengeance, an act of crime and murder today, was surely a morality in the past era, 300 years ago.
This is the goodness that is a metaphor of substance, an expedient goodness.
Like values born newly by the passage of “time”, values also change by the positional change of “space”.
Although in India, cows are sacred animal and are subject of protection, they are not in Europe and Japan.
Although it is evil to eat beef in India, it is not in Japan.
Also, the principle of crusade is the same.
Each nation regards themselves as good, and regard other nations as evil that should be shattered.
There are places where man-eating is “good” like in cannibalistic tribe.
Good and evil differs by the position of space.
Good and evil change by the coordinate axis of time and space.
Even the values of good and evil in one era will lose its validity in the next era.
Change of space-time, and of values have correlation.
It is like a mind in the body.
This is the true identity of expedient goodness, and thus, expedient goodness can never be the universal criterion of value for human beings.
Because they change by time and space.
Good and evil of God is not an absolute value, and because its good and evil will relativize.
Since space-time is equal to substance, good and evil that doesn’t go out of substance cannot be called as the universal criterion of value for human beings.
In such cases, it seems as if there are no infinite actual “absolute goodness of God” since human knowledge, thoughts, concepts, recognitions, sentiments are all relative.
If the value you believe as “good” today will be recognized as “evil” in the next era, then the values you believe now will breakdown.
There is nothing to believe, and it may turn out that it is better to live selfishly.
People of 300 years ago were doing “vengeance” believing that it is good.
If you hear that same act today is only a murder and evil, it will at least take away belief in the present which is eternal.
Because it is suitable for the values of good and evil which modern people believe.
Even nowadays, there are people who insist that this is justice and goodness.
But the goodness they insist today would be called evil by the human beings of 24th century in 300 years from now.
It is already partly shown by climate change etc.
Since expedient goodness is a goodness that is a metaphor of substance, the goodness and justice they insist today will be called as evil 300 years after, and from God’s eye, the insisted goodness today is to believe in evil.
That moment, values of good and evil you believe now will collapse in front of you, and there will be no value to believe.
This is the true identity of expedient goodness.
Therefore, expedient goodness can never be the universal criterion of value for human beings.
How should we, humans, recognize the good and evil of God?
For this, I can only ask you to read “the law of horizon” which is the only universal criterion of value for human beings. A philosopher named Hegel says that relative goodness that appear in each era and area, are the goodness of various stages that lead to absolute goodness.
It is not that old vengeance is evil, but the recognition toward God’s goodness is gradually progressing through history.
It regarded that compared to the concept of good and evil of the time when vengeance was good, the modern concept of good and evil has progressed gradually through history after 300 years.
Good and evil often change by the passage of “time”, and by the position of “space”.
Since “time” and “space”, namely space-time is equal to substance, goodness that is a metaphor of substance cannot be called as universal criterion of values for human beings, and thus, it is not the heart of God.
The heart of God only exists in somewhere out of this space-time.
This is the feature of truth and is the heart of God.
