This is like having a debate on evolution with a creationist.
Damn. It just occurred to me. You're a creationist, aren't you?
There is certainly science...there are all kinds of case studies on this. But I believe honest common sense is the best judge on this, it is not that hard to see, but, I have given you many examples of some of our hypocrisies.
Yes I am a creationist, I certainly do not believe that this is all a accident. And, I chose to show you our nature of hypocrisy from a basis of science, in that I know most here rely so much on it, that is... when it agrees with their current ideology. I gave you a link on a review of a case study at a university and that the researchers believe basically we are hypocrite due to evolutionary selection. The author does her research at both NYU and Harvard.
You are indirectly showing me something very interesting and valuable to this conversation, and IMO hypocritical. You are denying the science, and even that it is science that shows that we are all hypocrites, and yet looking at me as somehow inferior, deceived, lost, an a-hole, or lame ( you pick the word) because I believe in a Creator. You took the moral stance that because you believe in evolution, that you are correct in all this in that I am a creationist...correct? If not why did you think that way?
In my view, this shows and explains how we justify others in our mind, and this example shows how you ignored and denied a scientific case study on who we are, (and over all the science of this topic), and how we tick as humans, and the outcome that it is believed to be due to natural selection... and yet in your view think of me as being wrong (again you pick the word) for being a Creationist. In others words..."Markk is a creationist, so what possibly can he know and has no credibility?" If I am wrong, why did you inject..."Damn. It just occurred to me. You're a creationist, aren't you?" comparing this to a evolution/creation debate... Is there somehow science behind your view...where?
There are just so many published articles on this subject that to say it is not a science is silly, you may not agree with the science, I certainly do not agree with all science, which is fair, but it none the less a science Morley.
I found this abstract interesting also, the Title is perfect to my thought..."The duality of virtue: Deconstructing the moral hypocrite"

And going full circle, as a Christian, I find that this science indirectly supports much of Biblical thought on the nature of man.
You don't have to answer this, but what was your immediate thought to my last sentence?
What would you offer in return, with either science or opinion, that would support your opinion that mankind is not hypocritical by nature and that there are people who are free from ever being hypocritical? Who in your view are not ever hypocrites?
