Since evil is subjective, she could hardly be incorrect in her perception of it.

It's all in the wording; I'm more or less just nitpicking on the accuracy of her statement. That is all.

Divito, if you argue that evil is purely a subjective concept, how can anybody possibly be "incorrect" about it?

I said that she wasn't incorrect in her opinion, but I was more so speaking in regards to the wording or how I thought it should have been more accurately stated.

If evil existed, then what is it exactly?
this is to those who believe in evil.

i personally do not think there is such a thing, or hell either as stated above.

Evil is purely a subjective call.  I assume that Hitler saw his actions as needed for his country to become stronger and found nothing evil in his views.  From his point of view, he was acting in the greater good when he ordered the mass murder of thousands of people.

From my point of view, what he did was evil.

Hell, as I used it, was a descriptive term, meant only to be used as a reference.  Everyone knows that "Hell" as the place of punishment for Xtians, is a terrible place full of evil things and demons.  The phrase "Evil as Hell" is merely a description.

I can't believe you guys are giving her a hard time for using a figure of speech.

I think Hitler may have been brilliant, in the beginning.  It's quite possible he fried his brain with drugs. 
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Hitler was ill, although what that illness was is a subject of serious debate.

http://en.allexperts.com/q/20th-Century-History-3242/Hitler-mental-illness-nervous.htm

That there was something wrong with him is not the question, by the end of the war, he had a visible palsy, noticeable even in the film of that time.

I have not been able to find any proof that he did more than mild experimentation with drugs.  Correction, he did take the Speed tablets offered to the German troops, Starting in 1942.

"From 1942, the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler received daily injections of methamphetamine from his personal physician, Dr Theodor Morell. The F?hrer was also familiar with cocaine. Hitler's ailments have been attributed to everything from tertiary syphilis to Parkinson's disease. But many of The F?hrer's clinical signs and symptoms may have been caused by his exotic drug regimen.

In Hitler's Wehrmacht, methamphetamine tablets branded as Pervitin were liberally distributed to German fighting troops throughout the War. Amphetamines are "power drugs" that reduce fatigue, heighten aggression, and diminish human warmth and empathy. "

(http://amphetamines.com/adolf-hitler.html)

Even a regular dose of speed wouldn't account for all of the problems he had in the last part of the war.

It was outside America and testing it in America was getting boring and unhealthy but then this is not his justification, he probably wasn't born when that caper happened.

Britain actually did not care about the invasion of France during the First World War. It wasn't until Belgium was invaded that they decided to join in.

All history written, by people on both sides of something, is biased. Americans are taught that they are awesome and Europeans suck, and vice versa. Hell, we have a Columbus day over here to celebrate a mercenary who committed genocide while discovering America for the not so first time. But almost no Americans know that.
