    THE DEBATE ON THIS IS WELCOMED!!!

    Where do double standards come from? From a double conscience, two
    inner voices belong to two spirits: True God and satan. Confused people
    say that conscience is a vague concept, fulfilling the words ``distress of
    nations, with perplexity'' Luke 21:25. An ordinary person's conscience
    appears blurry, vague, and ambiguous because it would be a mixture
    of the two incompatible consciences. Look: All the rainbow colors can be
    obtained by mixing three colors in the palette: red, green, and blue.
    There is a whole spectrum of gods and religions in the religious realm,
    just from two gods: satan and True God. The satan is also a god, but a
    god of lies, delusion, confusion, and falsehood, for it is written:
    ``He was the murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for
    there is no truth in him." John 8:44. The god of falsehood. And therefore, the
    FALSE god and the first self-made idol in history. For it is written:
    ``I have given them the glory that you gave Me, that they may be one
    as we are one" John 17:22, but people have replicated from the first idol
    many idolic gods and, thus, became separated from the community with
    each other, for it is written: "Divide and rule" (Latin: divide et impera).

    It's red, yellow and green. You can only have blue if you blend yellow and green. :D

    Since for me there is no God or Satan, double standard is created by selfishness, greed, our attachments.

    You see. There are a lot of conflicting perspectives.

    He's got this all wrong. When mixing light, the primary colours are red green and blue, yellow being a mixture of red and green.

    When mixing pigments, the primary colours are magenta, yellow and cyan, sometimes referred to slightly incorrectly as red, yellow and blue.

    The reason for the difference is that while when you mix light colours you add them, pigments work by subtraction, as they absorb all colours apart from the one they reflect.

    Basically, it's Satan.

    I see "satan" as our unconscious mind. A little dramatic maybe but I suspect the source of the idea of satan.

    The unconscious mind is the source of all our desires. It causes us to want what it wants.
    Consciously however we have our own ideas about what is right or maybe we've been instructed about what is right by our religion or culture.

    So consciously, we may have some rational idea about what is right and wrong. Unconsciously, we have other desires. Problem is the unconscious has a lot more power of control over our actions. So it generally wins the tug of war of what we do versus what we think, consciously, we ought to be doing.

    I think, my humble text has inspired your reply. Could you, please award my thread with some emoji? Like, perhaps giving it a "like" sign?

    Haha, well it's all about how our eyes detect light of different wavelengths and interpret these as different colours. But that's not really the topic of the thread so I'd better not further derail it. (I see the OP, having told you that you were wrong, has realised he too was wrong - and has now corrected his post.)

    Sometimes, double standards are rational, as with different standards for adults and minors regarding purchasing alcohol and cigarettes.

    A principle or standard to me is a belief that plays out wherever it can unless trumped by a higher principle. So, one may hold honesty as a virtue, but if he holds love as a higher principle or standard of conduct, he might be dishonest when honesty would be unloving. This would not be an example of hypocrisy or a double standard. This is a person of principle and consistency.

    I find that many people in multiple contexts really have no other principle than that they want what they want and are willing to wheel out any principle that they think supports their position.

    So, for example, when the theist, whose beliefs are based in faith rather than evidence, says he cannot believe abiogenesis because there is no evidence for it, he's falsely representing that that is a standard for belief for him. Of course it isn't, but if he thinks that words further his case, he has no compunction against using them.

    So what principle does this person represent here? Nothing to do with evidence. His actual principle is that he will say whatever he finds expedient. In the case of debating empiricists, the pretend principle - I call these pseudoprinciples - is interest in evidence.

    Or the people shouting about freedom when what they mean is their freedom, not yours. They are representing in some context such as being required to get a vaccine to work that freedom is a principle they champion, but it's not a principle they actually hold in the sense of supporting freedom whenever possible. It's a pseudoprinciple, and wheeling it out ad hoc creates the double standard. They'll often also agree with assorted measures limiting the freedoms of others, such as to get an abortion, or to vote, or to teach about transgender issues or racial history in the public schools, because freedom is simply not a principle for them, just their own, creating a double standard and hypocrisy.
