Exactly, how can we say people are born evil i we do not have an agreed logical definition. It is subjective...

Then this question is utterly useless.

"Are people born evil?"

Or yeah, an assertion either which way, like this topic title.

Evil - morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked: evil deeds; an evil life.

Morals are also a creation of man so there subjective. I agree with OP.

I'd say much of human behaviour is learned from birth and onwards, considering different cultural groups have different practices; these are often conceived as weird to anybody else. I do think we still have a few animalistic traits though that seem to stick around.

Evil would be the opposite identity towards a personal identification of Good. Some people can be born this way. If a person identifies evil with a new born that comes into this world carrying a disease, then the baby was born evil in the reality of that person's truth.

Most definitions, if not all definitions are subjective.

So yes, a person can be born evil... But evil is defined differently in accordance with personal truth.
"Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power."
