we don't need science to prove ppl are selfish because we already understand that..I did not say ppl were selfish i simply stated and proved that there is a such thing as true altruism and not everything ppl do is selfish nor should everything we do, even simply petty things that you and cap like to mention, be considered selfish..
And this I posted and proved that even altruism has selfish roots. Like I said, you find a link...i find a link. There is always a counter view available. Especially on this topic.
You dont have to tell me about the complexity of humans. Do I really need to say it again?!! VARIABLES!!!!!<quoted text>
furthermore it's an attempt to oversimplify human nature and we as humans are very complex..everyone has been selfish at one time or another, but in order to consider someone a selfish person IMO that would mean that one would have to have selfishness stand out more than any other part of their personalty and this isn't the case for everybody..
I think I read here somewhere that your a GOD fearing woman? The bible teaches are naturally selfish, its human nature.:)<quoted text>
i will say it again, it is a scientific fact that ppl are not innately selfish and studies show that selfish ppl are that way because of their child rearing and i showed proof of that. I also posted a study showing children being altruistic WITHOUT parents in the room and proving that we aren't innately selfish.
Did you miss my study about kids and how they are actually selfish?
If they still gave, theres a personal motive. Link provided already that explains how altruism is a myth, always selfish or self interested. I missed some of your links? Where? I will go back. Some of them I would skip over as soon as I saw "blog" or "opinion" in the link. Some of your others I couldnt open so I couldnt comment. I will have to check when I get home.<quoted text>
I also showed you a study which explained that although ppl are more likely to act selfishly the more decision time they're given the overwhelming majority STILL gave. I posted several studies that prove you're wrong and you did not reply to the last links i posted on altruism..
