good. good. my bad for misinterpreting it :o. gotcha. its nice to have people who are similar to you and share similar interests as well, so i agree with you it would make life happier. you just have to search for people like that then man i believe in you x)

more epic examples :] yeah its really great. i only have like two people in my real life, who share my interest in it and i don't even get to converse about it a lot so, the internet is great. how about you, do you know anyone irl who knows about anime? yeah, i definitely would Dx i would hate that feeling. i'm glad i joined this site

eh it does every now and then. i try to keep a positive outlook but when i get time to think it gets bogged down. still i get through the day

hahah omg. how was that movie ive never seen it. im not too much of a scary movie fan myself :s i probably would have done the same though sometimes its pretty scary. all my objects in my room turn into different things when the lights are off like i.e, my curtains turn into the grim reaper or such things :p lmao, well glad you could handle it better man

i wouldn't be surprised if you actually did become the next Da Vinci man. you have real skill :] welcome! ^^

When you feel like there is no way out, you realize that love is the only way.

No.

What I've noticed is that most herbivorous animals (not all) tend to be gentle in nature, like sheep, cows, rabbits etc.
While carnivorous and omnivorous animals (humans) are fierce in nature.

This is due to the fact that such traits (murderous intent, greed, strong sexual essence) were needed for survival and continuation of species in the wild.
I'm not saying eating meat is responsible for violent nature in humans, what I'm saying is that to hunt down meat, humans needed murderous instincts.

These primitive instincts obviously are still present in today's humans, in some people, they are stronger than others.

In the future, it is possible that human males could start to appear less and less violent because of a reduced level of testosterone and continous social conditioning of moral values; but I don't think it will be gone completely.


Human females, too.


people are evil by default.


People are not evil by default. No one is born evil. They might BECOME that way - but they are not BORN that way.

Never.

It will always be the same as long as humans exist we lie, we feel envy, we hate, we love money, we love power, we care too much about ourselves.

In order to end evil, we must change ourselves before we can change the world...let's become all like Mother Teresa who spent her life taking care of the sick and free of love for money, free of hate and free of love for herself and maybe, evil will end.

Somehow I skipped over this...Let's just agree to disagree but I admit that the subject of human complexity is very interesting. And I just remember a book called the picture of Dorian Gray, this insert explains it


But in the book, after fulfilling all his deepest desires, he fell in love and this person gave him his meaning of life and the happiness all his desires couldn't give him. It just reminded me of this conversation with all this talk about love being just an idea.

My opinions are just based off of my experiences, so i'm afraid you win? as I don't really let other cultures influence my feelings or beliefs and to tell the truth, I haven't really deeply observed other cultures. I just don't agree that "love" is just an illusion or an idea or like the other user said "we wouldn't and shouldn't be able to feel love" (something along those lines) without society or others telling us what to do or what to feel. Sure, there are many cultures and different societies with different set of rules but that doesn't mean they don't feel love, they might not touch the subject for the sake of their beliefs.

I also don't think you can learn by just observing, you have to experience to know what it really is like. Knowledge is good but experience? I don't believe in loving 2 or more people at the same time (romantically speaking), you will always like one more than the other and that's the point I'm trying to convey. I also believe that a life without love is meaningless so other cultures or societies will not change what I feel in my heart. Oh, and I read a lot...my favorites are foreign stories so I can learn about their culture,,,in all of them, love plays a big part in the story.

We are like animals but we are not animals. What makes other societies right and ours wrong? but like I said, let's just agree to disagree.

I was talking about people wanting evil in general eradicated by a deity, not people who want help.

Morality cannot suppress the animalistic instinct to survive.


Yes it can (^). Where have you been? Living in a cave?

A father taking a bullet for his family is not an action based on morality; it's based on the animalistic instinct to protect one's offspring. This is also seen in the animal kingdom, a snake will give its life to protect its eggs, so will a pigeon, it doesn't mean those animals have "morals".

Protective instincts are instilled by nature into all animals including humans.



As for other cases, like firefighters giving their life to save people, I don't want to talk about why they do what they do, because I respect their profession too much to second-guess their motives and bring it into a public forum discussion about philosophy of human behaviour.


There's firefighters, police, military, teachers who took a bullet for their students in the school shootings, lifeguards, random people......Since I live in a beach community, every year we get scenarios where tourists get caught in rip tides and are either saved by lifeguards or strangers.......who sometimes die in the attempt. It happens too often here, I wish people would take it seriously when we warn them about the rip tides.

Your examples don't contradict my original statement; "Morality cannot suppress the animalistic instinct to survive".

Because those people who sacrifice themselves to save others in dire situations do not realise that they are in danger themselves until they've been hurt. They see others are in danger, but they don't view their own life as being in danger yet, so they act on their moral standards, they believe they can save those people without being killed.
