    “Offcial point of view now? is that there is no human nature.” Who is the offcial, or who are the offcials? How can this man talk beyond this point?

    I used to think that Dallas Willard had valuable things to say. But this inane, ignorant BS about human sexuality–especially his shameless misrepresentations of Kennedy’s opinion in Lawrence v Texas and the Mass. Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage–greatly lowers my respect for him. You’d think a philosopher ought to have a decent respect for truth, but Willard distorts and misrepresents without compunction. Shame on him. He turns out to? just another fundie crap peddler.

    Most ppl? believe in human nature when it benefits their own ignorance, to win an argument or something, but when it comes to reality and talking about what’s really going on, they automatically assume humans aren’t greedy self serving corrupt creatures by design. And that politicians and bankers, the rich and powerful, would never dare dream of abusing their power. Fact is, if u gave the average sheep that kinda power, they’d abuse it themselves (and they damn well know it). (continued)

    Yet, they have this irrational FAITH in human nature, that their leaders are somehow superior and are incapable to abusing? that sort of power. Now I don’t follow gurus or religions, I don’t agree with Willard or any other guru they through out, 100%… Nor do I disagree with them 100%.
