No.
It is not human 'nature'. We are not predators. We are not used to hunting each other or other species.
We do it only occasionally. Like in a war or something. I even oppose the 'always' part. Anyone and anything
can be trained or changed to do something. It will not always be.

"It is not human 'nature'. We are not predators. We are not used to hunting each other or other species"

It is human nature to fight over many things such as mates and territory. Today wars are fought over territories. Also my opponent seen to have the illusion that we are not a hunting species. Haven't you seen pantings of early humans, the hunted mammoths.Look at your self. Your knuckles were meant for a fight. your nail were used to rip at flish and your arm was designed to through spears and rocks hard. We were designed for violence.

"Anyone and anything can be trained or changed to do something. It will not always be."

Also how are we supposed to obtain peace without violence, the U.N needs the threat of violence to force some countries to follow the rules. There will always be the one country that we have to declare war on. Also aren't we trained not to be violent? At schools they train us to use words, not punches, but we still are prone to violance. Everyone will get into a fight sometime.

Also just because we are not always fighting, doesn't mean we are not violent. We all have resorted to violent means before, we have fought with someone before, this shows that violence is a part of our nature, just a well controlled part. Also it will always be part of our nature. Our genes are set up to allow us to be violent, our genes gives us our violent features, this shows that humans will always resort to violence eventually, no matter how well controlled because we are a naturally aggressive species.
