Evil may be stronger than good...

Science + Religion Today has an interesting article on the physiological effects of good and evil. Since the notion of good vs. evil pervaded much of the course I thought that this was worth sharing!
Performing good deeds (or just thinking about doing them) helps us perform better on tests of physical endurance and willpower, new research suggests. But doing evil things make us even stronger.

Excellent link! I've been wondering if it has to do with adrenaline. Maybe people who contemplate evil acts pump themselves up. This is good food for thought.
