At this point, I'd like to start a thread that is based on Timesurfer's reply here on the nature of human morality, but it seems obvious that one would first have to examine an apriori assumption. We would have to decide whether we think human is 'inherently good, or s/he is inherently bad/evil'. Quite possibly, we could decide that s/he is both, which would increase the complexity ten fold and raise all sorts of fun issues such as free will and determinism..... Therefore I would like to ask, are we good, bad/evil, or both, or neither? How do we know that?
