So what do you think? Are people generally good, and capable of evil? Or generally evil, but capable of good? Why?

Poll. And I think most people just act one way or the other, but it's hard to judge as a whole.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I think all people are good, but let their selfish needs come first in certain instances, which is only human.

+1. even tho stupid is a relative term. I'd say ignorant of the state of things is a better term.

Nah. There wouldn't be a poll then, and it'd be all chaotic.

There's no such thing as objective good and evil, they're just social constructs.

Depends. We all carry Adam & Eve's original sin until we're baptized. And some people (I'm thinking of our turban'd and yarmulke'd friends) go their whole lives without being baptized. If you've accepted Jesus Christ then you're generally good.

People are generally self-proclaimed generalists, when in actuality, they are shoddy specialists. They like to generalize everything to a level of generalization that it baffles truer generalists who generalize not because generalization provides an easement for collective opinion, but for its true purpose, which is, sadly, also, just generalization. But my generalization is better than yours!

all good has selfish motives, but does that make the actions evil?

i say good...when you are born you arent evil...some people get mixed up in bad situations and become bad as a way of life....it all depends on how your parents raise you. i know quite a few people who werent raised very good and do alot of ****ed up shit while their brothes and sister arent like them because they were taken away and placed with family members who actually gave a shit about them.
#31
it depends on what you consider good and what you consider evil, but as a species humans are pretty awesome but we can do some incredibly stupid things

people generally generalise way too much.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

If we're going to generalize I'd say people are generally stupid.

In many jesus pictures iv seen, he has a lot of feminine facial features. He also is white with blonde hair or light brown. Hes also well groomed, even with a beard its all kept nice. Jesus did not look like that....
Anyway people are neutral until they perform actions that make them more so one than the other.

I'm starting to believe that there actually is no such thing as evil; just people's different views on what is wrong and what is right.
"You have brains in your head,
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose,
You're on your own,
And you know what you know,
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."

- Dr. Seuss
