The first day of nothing!
Everything, when discussed philosophically, amounts to just about zero. Take happiness for instance. Happiness is a hormone that triggers when we see something familiar, humorous, or joyful and it uplifts our mood. Happiness is triggered by how we react to things, based on how well we know ourselves. When an oil well erupts, thousands of environmentalists go crazy about how this will affect the environment. Others will look at it as a way to get sweet mula. As you can see, the perspective of things especially effects our views and emotions about life and its events. Goodness and evil are also things that we have categorized and labeled from emotions and perspective. Goodness is an applicable thing that goes along with that which does nobody harm or pain. Pain is that which helps our bodies to know what will harm it, and what will not. Goodness is that which does not inflict pain or negative emotions. Evil is that which is easily comparable to being animal or savage. Take the Indians for example. They took a dead man's scalp for a trophy to show their strength and to boost their honorable status in the tribe. To those whose relative lost their scalp, it is an act of savage and horrible actions that make them see the Indians as harmful and evil savages. And so, evil and goodness are things that are not to be trifled nor changed, seeing as the leaders of our nation are changing the Constitution which holds the values and beliefs of every American, and they are breaking it. To everyone his own, to choose what he may be, but it is not for others to criticize that which another believes. If they know that what the other believes is wrong, such as murder, then it is their responsibility to befriend them, to nurture them, and to help them see the error of their ways, not shove values and beliefs down their throats. Do what must be done to bring peace and joy to those around them. This is an idea that all can apply and respect.
