[[ > Humans are inherently evil.

I beg to differ. It's a learned behavior, hence a sociatal factor. Children are inherently good-natured. They AUTOMATICALLY know True right from wrong. They are not selfish, and naturally have an INTENSE sence of Empathy. Any selfish or malicious behavior is totally the result of 'Enculturation'.
...and because we have a Nobel nature to begin with, we can break the cycle and return to that. Most just never chose to. ]]

....yes, what horrible optimism about Human Nature... I can see why someone wouldn't want to be recieving trash like that.

lol..that whole nature nurture debate is really big out here

Well, I study both Psychology and Anthropology, and I have yet to see evidence convincing me of (other than fluke occurances) agression and violence being inherent in a human, and not picked up.

2005-09-12 13:49:25 ET

i agree. i dont think that humans are born with any sort of preplanned aggrssive behavior..everyone here seems to dissagree with me.

Yes, well, don't feel too bad.

Victorian Doctors thought children had NO sexuality.

It is quite easy for majorities to hold oppinions that the facts starkly contradict.

Well I didn't spank my daughters ass til she started slapping me at the ripe age of 6 months. And I know for a fact she never saw anyone hitting me before that. She just got really mad because I wouldn't let her have my cup so she raised up her hands and slapped me. Ive always thought it was picked up, but... I don't know anymore.

2005-09-12 15:23:07 ET

she didn't have to see anyone hitting YOU specifically. ...they pick things up from every aspect of the environment they come in contact with.
