  • Religion and Philosophical Views on Nature of Human Life
    • Human Nature
      • Are humans good or bad?
        • All humans are born with morals on what's right or wrong, intrinsically good.
      • What makes them good or bad?
      • Does society change us for better or worst?
        • It depends - for better if we're brought up in a good environment which makes us morally good.
        • Although sometimes society could have a negative impact as if someone is brought up with violence and crime etc it will influence their actions.
    • Philosophers
      • 'You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty' - Ghandi
        • Human nature is good, one bad person does not mean humanity is bad as a whole. Positive about human nature and that most of us good.
      • 'On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time' - George Orwell
        • Humans want to be good but as part of human nature, you have to do some bad. Humans like doing things we shouldn't. Its good if it suits or benefits a person.
      • 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that' - Martin Luther King
        • Evil cannot take out evil, mess fire with fire and you will get burned. To get rid of bad we need to be good. Only love can make things better, he can see intrinsic good. Love overcomes darkness.
