    Good and evil are completely subjective human constructs which equate to:
    >Hurts me = bad
    >Helps me = good
    Most Christians think that evil is "anything that inconveniences me" when really others are mostly / the universe is indifferent. How we feel doesn't dictate reality, it's just a measure of our individual perception of it which we, in our arrogance, project unto an existential patriarch (God) and invent religion thereby.

        >tl;dr how you feel isn't an objective of measure of reality and yet out descriptions of what constitutes "good" and "evil" are based upon an emotional measure of reality
        Which is to say that while morality certainly exists on a human/individual-scale it is wrong, and more than a little naive, to assume it applies on an existential-scale. The universe is indifferent to how you perceive it. It exists regardless.

          Can you explain this?
          Do you simply mean that human mores are not literally baked into the universal constants?

            Something can be true for humans but not for God (or whatever else you want to call the primeval source of creation). Our subjective "truth" is not an objective universal reality. What makes this especially clear is how our perception of good and evil changes throughout history and differing cultures, to such an extent one can't meaningfully deny that it's all ultimately relative.

      Just because it's a social construct doesn't mean it's arbitrary or disposable.

          No it's not.
          Humans developed these constructs because they're conducive to our well-being. Disposing of them has lead to disaster every single time.
          Sure there's some degree of cultural relativism (Brahmins in India are strictly forbidden from eating meat, for example, whereas western society gets by without such a rule) but regardless of geography, culture, or time, humans need social contracts in order to prosper.

            A lie can be a good lie but that doesn't mean we should call it a truth just to further justify collectively agreeing to buy into it

        I've actually read the Fountainhead and I can summarize:
        >Rich people deserve to have more than you because how much you have is a measure of your worth in an all encompassing sense. Good and evil are therefore objectively based upon one's possessions in a market system.
        Compelling stuff...

      To be fair most Christians I've met concede that God likely takes circumstances into account. It's only on Cinemaphile that I've ever encountered people who think God's judgement is just an undergrad CS grading bot that boots you because a comment had some forbidden phrases.

        Sin is sin. Trying to justify evil acts as being "necessary" is literally just another sin (or rather, should be, since considering how modern papists and protestants "worship", they probably hold that position.).
        >B-But I would die of starvation!
        Then die? Is your eternal soul worth more than a few years or decades more on Earth?

            God is likely cognizant of all choices that could ever be made by any human at any point
            >LE god evil then cuz omnipotent yet do nothing!
            God does not intervene directly in earthly affairs, with the notable exception of biblical stories and rare miracles. This is due to the effect it has on the free will of humanity; too often, and they would never have the choice but to worship, not at all, and humanity would never know of him barring an subconscious feeling that something is out there.
