Its like when people say they would never steal. If you were starving....I mean REALLY starving, and you saw a hamburger, just sitting there, of course you are going to grab it. It all depends on needs and causes......We are all far more close to "bad" behavior than we realize.
That doesn't always make us "bad" people, maybe fucked up, but not evil.
Even "fucked up" is a human perception, and the universe doesn't really care what we do. I find more comfort in the knowledge of the universe and our existence because it puts all the castigation here on Earth in perspective. Our whole existence is far less than a millisecond in space time. A small, dim spark, but maybe not even that. That scares some people. I find it comforting. And this is something that can be observed, without a need for a leap of faith.
