Inheritently evil or not?

December 3, 2007 at 12:02 am (evolving atheist)

In Confucianism, there’s this thing called life force, and everyone has one. Li and Qi are apart of everyone, so get use to it.
Simply put, Li is the basic form or fundamental principle of something (yes, it’s not limited to just life or animate beings). And Qi is the substance or stuff(ing) of which the Li is made.
Well, from my experience, it seems that humans are completely inheritantly evil, but what basis did I pull that from? Well, my own mother is a fucking pig, and only does things for her own benefit, looking out for #1, neglecting me as a kid. Well, I’m sorta the same way, I’ll look out for #1 only for survival purposes only, but when it comes to helping people out, I’ll go out of my way to do so. And, society seems to frown upon that. Except, of course, when it comes to religion. People will definately go out of their way to “guide someone to the right path”. “You do not need the bible to justify love, but no better tool has been invented to justify hate.” That was a quote by Richard A. Weatherwax. If only we could get rid of the Bible, the Avesta, the Koran, etc. then we could move on and try out the true test of the human venture. What if there were no religions, and just laws? The country would go in chaos, you say? Well, I say that’s a bullshit alternative. This is probably a very good reason to push religion onto others, but it’s still just an excuse to push it onto others.
Oh boy, another tangent I’ve seen to go down.
You could also say that humans are inheritantly good, but that is hard for me to believe. I have only seen a few people go out of their way for selfless reasons to help others. It’s a bullshit world, there is no “love thy neighbor” existence in this world. None, and the sooner the reality hits you, the sooner we can both go eat. “Well, there’s Mother Teresa, and Bill Gates, they’re helping out people” you might say. Well, that’s becuase they have the resources to do that sort of thing. I don’t, and I will not pretend to do that, in spite of any arguments to convince you that I am a better person because of my past experiences. I have made many mistakes, sure, but the one mistake that I try not to make is the one that involves hurting others.
