    We all know that source of evil is greed.

    But no one seems to talk about the source of all good.

    Any ideas on where goodness or altruism comes from? :confused:


    I guess this is a philosophical question, but I couldn't find a section for it so I posted here.

    Many species in the animal kingdom seem to reflect acts of altruism that might be related to "survival of the species". I think that at the core humans tend to naturally care for babies and seemingly helpless individuals for similar reasons.

    I'm not sure I even agree with your premise that the source of evil is greed.

    Where do you think evil comes from then?
