yes maybe you are correct! gold was very identic with evil,gold is precious for human,its a precious metal,and its not have static value like money,why gold is identic with evil?i think because evil idenctiswith temptation,evil always tempt a human for doing wrong,and they use gold for weapon,human love gold,and they cannot deny it,it why human on past time is mke their self on danger for sake a peice of gold,and make a wrong doing..

If there were no gold, there would be precious stone, if there were no precious stone, there will be precious wood, etc. Gold is just a symbol, an item people think is worth dying for.
Blame the people for being greedy - not the commodity for simply existing.

Gold is just a lump from the ground. People are evil. If used tampons were the cast iron store of value then you'd be demonising that.

To be very honest as a literature student I have thoroughly studied Indian history and their customs .The kings ,rules ,warriors used tonwear gold as honor respect and sign of wealthiness .They did had money coins as well but gold was still expensive back then as everybody could afford to earn some pennies but gold was only in the favor of kings .No one really fought war for gold or money.The war was fought to come into the power and rule the land or to expand the empire .

There is no devil.  Evil is sort of a human construct.  Gold has unique properties.  People like shiny things.

I was meaning it metaphorically. I`m not a religious person, yet I find wisdoms in ancient texts.

You have to admit that gold itself has really caused humans to behave in evil ways. And this is just "money" that is causing people to be evil, but there is some subtle evil aura around gold that makes people do evil things.

because gold is use a currency back then, and it has a value which you use to buy food and some other stuff.
even if let say sea shells where use as currency back then it will be the same as the gold it will cause people to do
evil stuff.

Yeah that is true, Gold has a great impact on the mindsets of the people as they would do anything to hold gold with them and that also involves some criminal offense which people does for the possession of gold, and it is traditional even the kings and emperors have done in the past.

Bitcoin is money too, and bitcoin cant be stolen like gold can.

If bitcoin would have been here for thousands of years, then the history would be less bloody.

Bitcoin's decentralized nature removes blood from money Smiley

Bitcoins design makes its lifespan only 150 years.
When the last Bitcoins are mined, people will move on to a different currency.
It cannot exist for 1000s of years.

In a way I agree: if we will not be able to create a strong economy/ecosystem for it BTC will not have a long life.
Good insight, thank you!

People will do everything evil to do harm their fellow humans. It's within ourself and though many of us have a right balance, some people can't resist the temptation.

Be it gold, bitcoin or usd evertyhing of value will change how some people thing and what they are willing to do...

Well said, the corrupted mind of some people are causing greed. It's not the asset itself but ignorance and greed which make people evil.

I can't understand why so many people choose to scam instead of makeing an honest living..

Thats true but used tampons are nasty and have no value.

Gold has a charming or seducing aura around it that can make people do those evil things. Metaphorically it's like it's a possessed metal.

It's the nature of humans. Some are so weak or had a lack of education and thus choose the wrong path.

Frankly i can't feel bad for them, since it has to do with their bad karma.

We know that wars are funded by fiat money (throughout history) but they have all been fought for gold.

No, all money is a simply a tool. Superstitious beliefs in authority (god and government) are the real evils. For example, gold is the medium, but the power of taxation is what compels people to fund war. If that wasn't the case then any corporation could start a war.

that is not true. Gold has been used to store value for a very long time and is always appreciating. its qualities make people misuse for criminal activities but that does not make it evil. evil is usually in us and it depends on how we choose to use it.

Good observation that bitcoin can not be taken by force easily, this will dramatically reduce the motivation for robbery, just like Rothschild family successfully virtualized their assets thus become immune to physical threat from greedy monarchs: You can kill a banker but you can not get his wealth

As to gold, it was a widely accepted payment medium internationally. It gives the owner power to request goods/services from other people all over the world, peacefully, so it will give the owner great amount of freedom. It is the desire for freedom make gold valuable

However, nowadays gold has quit the circulation in most of the countries, so it is no longer a widely accepted payment medium. I think its price is artificially maintained by the central banks and large holders, a large dump of gold might crash its price to single digits. In a situation of world wide fiat money collapse, countries might select to accept payment in petroleum/electricity/raw material instead of gold since gold is really of no use in a crisis

agreed! gold isnt the the cause, its just that people has way of blaming things and make them look good with out it which is stupid,
even without gold people still do evil stuff. well basically people is the cause of evil.

It's not. We can't blame a physical object for the greed of all people. Far ago when there is still no gold where people uses anything to trade in exhange of something they want, there is already a greed. Be it if there is a gold or none, people gave value to anything so it's not the "gold" fault if people are greedy enough to fight over it.

OP has been listening to too much Pink Floyd. Gold is not the root of all evil it's the love of money that is the root of all evil. When people get too greedy, they do bad things to obtain assets like gold and oil. It is a sad fact that the governments of the  wo are corrupt and that is the status quo. Ìn time humanity will hopefully change.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

Of course but that physical object is what makes people "sick"

You cant blame Uranium that causes people to die if they touch it, it's not  Uranium's fault, nontheless it does make people die, so maybe we should not play with it?

The same goes for gold, it's not gold's fault that it has this effect on people, but it does have a negative effect, so maybe we should not play with it?
