I'm new here, but I have a lot of things I would like to gain a better perspective on, and I hope that a forum that focuses on science, philosophy and morality such as this one will help.

I would like to start by questioning the concept of good and bad, wrong and right, rational and irrational.

Let me help you a little bit. This is what I do when I talk and think about concepts.

1) Isolate the concept.
2) What other concepts is said concept depedent on?
3) What are its referents?
4) How does this concept fit into my knowledge of the world?
5) What words are tied to this concept?

I think this will help you greatly.

@AaronJW,
It's really amusing how much spite and hate I get for my viewpoints, just because they don't fall in line with the general way of thinking.
