  • There are 7+ billion people and 7+ billion different interpretations on what exactly humans are. And from this minor observation I draw the conclusion that humans are the least definable creatures in existence.
    We can be whatever we want to be. Are there bad humans? Yes. Are there good humans? Yes. Are there those who are fall underneath a morally grey category? Also yes.
    My point is that your definition of humans is wrong.
    My definition of humans would be wrong.
    Anyone's definition of humans would be wrong.

    There can be no single definition. It's completely subjective.

  • There is the bright side and the dark side. Its up to that individual to make the right decision. No one is "naturally" some way unless growing up as a kid they had mental issues. Its a choice.. Everything in life is a choice and the word natural being used for a certain behavior is an excuse.

  • Humans are good by nature, and tend to become evil.

    Humans have always been good, however what make them evil is that they chose the wrong path instead of the right one. It's based on their decisions, and also keeping in the good path takes time and dedication which is not the case for evil one.

  • To say we're naturally inclined to either good or evil is to force the universe into our limited perception. We conceived of good and evil, it's a social concept. A gazelle being torn to shreds by a lion is neither good nor evil, it just is. A person kills another person, we say its evil, but if all social concepts were removed this act is merely just an act. If you put a certain style of belief onto the act, it can be seen as noble, terrible, justified, unjustified, it all can be one thing or nothing or everything.

    It'd be more accurate to say the universe is uncaring, as we try desperately to cling to our small pocket of self-delusion to escape the sheer amount of "not giving a shit" the universe really has for us.

  • I think that most people naturally lean towards good. Perhaps, if we had a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being absolute evil and 10 being absolute good, then people are naturally a 7. Good, but with very observable flaws, like a streak of selfishness and greed.

  • Liberals think humans are basically good, conservatives think humans are basically evil.

    I think humans are basically good, but there are genetic deviations who cause great harm
