    What is the nature of man?

    Is man basically good or evil? Why do you feel that way?

    Man is not of divine origins, nor is he headed that way; he is not perfect, nor is he perfectible. He is what he is; by nature formed.

      THE NATURE OF MAN IS FLEXABLE. CAPABLE OF GOOD AND EVIL. I HAVE MET PEOPLE WHO ARE BASICALLY WITHOUT ANY CONSCIENCE WHICH IS UNFORTUNATE. THEY ARE SELFISH AND SELF INTERESTED, THE CENTER OF THEIR OWN UNIVERSE.THESE MEN ARE TO BE PITIED.

      I believe it to follow the nature of most animals. I do believe we are all divine.  All with souls.  All with the capability for anything given the right circumstance.

    Basically evil.  My religious reason is based on the Bible's description of man's sinful nature.  My Sherlock Holmesian logical thinker asks, "How many children do you know who have had to be TAUGHT to be disobedient?"  NONE...seems to go with the nature of the creature.

    Both. Ethics and good and evil vary from one person to another. No one knows whats truly right or wrong only what they perceive it to be, and thus every day people are committing acts which some people see as good but others see as evil.
