Are werewolves good or evil?
« on: September 15, 2007, 02:18:31 PM »
Just curious due to many movies and stories I have reviewed they useally tell me that werewolves are evil creatures. Now I don't want to believe that they give their soul to the devil. So I think everyone should comment back on this cause I would really like to know the truth. Is one to believe everything we read or watch because I am not so sure any more.  :?

Ever heard the axiom: "Don't believe everything you see, read, or hear."?

yes i have. just like the myth of the holocaust it is an interesting topic. the history vs. what the west believe and don't attempt to help. i mean all the genocides and we don't know about it (don't want to know about it). We say not to repeat itself but it is all the time and we don't do anything about it. its sad.

Humans are evil.  Any werewolf who is "Evil", is so because of the human part in them, and the wolf part doesn't know how to cope like a human does.  That is our explanation of why a fictional werewolf would be evil (from over at a private group I am in.)

i think sherlock is right, werewolfs are still kinda human arnt they, so whoever their human side is would probably dictate if they are good or bad.

I wouldn't use the word evil nor good. Just like everyone has their own way of showing their emotions.
Or that maybe you don't have emotions... doubt that no intellectual being has no emotions.

Now back to the topic. I've experienced werewolves not to be evil in exact terms, more to be like a dog...
Poke him once, you get the growl, poke him twice and you get bitten.

I often look at werewolves as your fluffy best friend. Just make sure it stays that way.

Thats all i got to say on this subject.

P.S. Those movies from Hollywood etc.... Fun to watch, sure. Who doesn't enjoy a movie, but when it comes to the facts of reality... It doesn't add up.

I'd probably agree with half of that.  I'm not "evil", I'm lovable and fluffy! ^..^

Humans are evil.  Any werewolf who is "Evil", is so because of the human part in them, and the wolf part doesn't know how to cope like a human does.

I disagree on purely philosophical grounds, though the misanthropist in me is certainly cheering you on.  However, it should be said that humans are neither innately good nor evil - they just are.  It's culture that makes a human evil, and also the point of view of the culture viewing that person.  One need only look at the history of modern Western Civilization to see multiple examples of culture-clash and accusations and assertions of what is "evil".  Take anarchy, for instance.

As for werewolf nature, I can only attest to my own experience.  I hardly consider myself a "hippie", though I'm often confused as one.  I do lack that avoidance of violence as mentioned in another topic.  I'm perfectly at ease with the subject generally speaking, and consider it a force of nature.  Nature herself is often violent at times, but can also be very peaceful, and downright gentle.  That being said, violence is a tool, and the end does not necessarily justify the means.  This leads us full-circle to the issue of what constitutes "evil", and I'm sure we could spend hours debating the question -- philosophers have been doing so for millenia.

i am not sure i think there are some people that are just plain evil no matter what culture you put them in. how about ted bundy, possible debatable in his later years. but when he was on the loose there can be no qestion if he is evil or not.

But then you must ask if he actually had a disease, and if so, is having a disease of the mind "evil"?

no way. he did it because he liked it not because he was crazy. he probably claimed stuff about himself being insane to get out of jail or into a more cushioned one or somthing, just like he would help police profile serial killers and stuff, to make himself look less of a evil person. the guy was a master manipulator, he was actually a very brilliant mind but it was corrupt .

i can find many more examples of evil people, i didnt use Hitler because he was a madman and the things he was doing where set in his self created world where he made the rules, so his evil was cultural.

I have to agree with thundergod about some humans are really evil. and i do believe in what SherlawkDragon said about human side determining if the were is evil.

Oh, just noticed this...
Humans are evil.  Any werewolf who is "Evil", is so because of the human part in them, and the wolf part doesn't know how to cope like a human does.
I disagree on purely philosophical grounds, though the misanthropist in me is certainly cheering you on.  However, it should be said that humans are neither innately good nor evil - they just are.  It's culture that makes a human evil, and also the point of view of the culture viewing that person.  One need only look at the history of modern Western Civilization to see multiple examples of culture-clash and accusations and assertions of what is "evil".  Take anarchy, for instance.
Well...  Maybe I worded that wrong...  see, humans have a greed within them, they have more ability to understand and do bad things than non-humans.  An eagle does not kill its own kind if it can help it, a wolf does not search for power (yes, sometimes wolves want to be the alpha, but this is because they think they can do better), an ant does not think of it's self when it gives its life for the colony.  Perhaps this does attest to why humans are so much more "advanced" or "dominant" than other species, but the negative is that humans, though I don't think they are inherrently good or evil, have the potential to think of doing evil.  A human knows something is greedy and wrong, but it will do it anyway in a selfish act.  I think it is this part of a were-creature that would make it "evil", the animal is not the evil part, it's the evil within the human that makes it bad.
(now, of course, Dragons and such can be an exception to this, but that's a different story...)
