The funny thing is I do believe there is a constructive force(love) and a destructive force (hate).
Love and hate are two sides of the same coin. I think that view is far too simplistic and fundamentally flawed.
People say God is all good, and for the rest they have their devil. But good and bad are human distinctions. In reality there is only one distinction; what works and what doesn't. What works exists, what doesn't work doesn't exist.
The thing is, I am pretty sure that there isn't anyone on this planet who acts with a motivation to do "evil". Regardless of the quality of their actions, the motivation is always to do some good. Even Hitler thought he was doing the world a service when he did what he did. I do not agree with him, but that doesn't change the fact that he believed it.
That brings a question to mind:
If the experiences and terms you understand and use to explain the origin of the world to yourself were proven to be outdated and invalid, what would you do?
In the old days, when science started revealing discoveries that undermined the beliefs of the church, they raised all hell to preserve their way of thinking. They burned books, they even burned the writers of those books. They tortured, persecuted and oppressed in the name of God, all the while claiming that "God is good".
No offense intended, but in my opinion it takes a special kind of idiot not to question the faith inherited by such men...
