  • Yes they are

    With the innocence of us being born, we see bad we do bad, we see good we do good. Otherwise, many other kids when they're going up they might hang out with the wrong type of people that really don't care about what is going on in life or how you are suppose to be in life in order to have and show respect. Many of the times the kids are that way maybe because of the parents not really showing love and care to their children or maybe because there family and friends act that way and we tend to think it okay.

  • Absolutely Born Innocent

    Adam was created sinless and his DNA did not change because he sinned, so it is impossible for a child to be born with sin. Adam sinned by making the wrong choice, via the use of his free will to choose. If a person's DNA changed every time they made a wrong choice, some people would destroy themselves in short order, while others who don't make bad choices would become angels and fly away to heaven without dying. The "original sin" philosophy is just another excuse people make to try to justify their evil actions.

  • Yes we are all born with pure innocence

    From by standpoint, I would have to argue that human beings are born with complete innocence because we have no control over what sins may have been done in the past. In agreement with the others on my side, we are born with the inability to comprehend right from wrong, resulting in accidental sins at a young age. We are also like sponges in the sense that we can take it information or act just like our models and in return continue the same mistakes until someone finally decides that something is right or wrong and in that case we can act upon the mistakes and always grow better.

  • Yes humans are born ininocent.

    Humans are born innocent because they have yet to be able to commit any kind of sin. They are still pure and until they are able to start lying and cheating there is no way that they could possible have committed a sin so therefore they are born into this world innocent.

  • Yes

    I don't really believe in "original sin." Just because Adam and Eve did something wrong doesn't mean every child is subsequently born damned. I do believe that every human being will sin very early in life, but I also think that a lack of understanding of right and wrong prevents the very young from being subjected to hell if they die. I believe this is why some religions have an "age of reason" (I have heard both seven and fourteen used), which is the point at which a person is expected to have a reasonable grasp of right vs. wrong. I find it unlikely that infants would be blamed for others' mistakes.

  • We're Not THAT Evil!

    How can you possibly argue that humans are NOT born innocent? They haven't ticked a single hour on the "existence outside the womb" timer to perform any actions that could cause them to lose their innocence. There is the argument that we al are born with "original sin", but what exactly does that mean anyway? That we're constantly trying to right some sort of wrong that we can't fix? I'd rather believe that we start out innocent and maybe lose some of it over time through experiences we have, but that's life.

  • Yes humans are born innocent

    How could they not be? What bad things or mean spirited things can an infant child do? Their brain isn't fully developed yet! There's nothing they could do evil, they don't know what they are doing at that time. Only when they do know can they do bad. So yes all humans are born innocent, it'd be impossible for them not to be.

  • No "original sin."

    When a baby is born, it doesn't know anything about the world or its problems. That baby certainly doesn't have some concept of "original sin," that is, it does not carry with it the sin of some people from thousands of years ago who may or may not have even lived.

  • Born innocent

    Yes, I definitely believe humans are born innocent. They don't know anything when they are born. It's what they have been taught while growing up that takes the innocence away. If a child is taught about sex at an early age, their innocence is taken away right there, but it they don't know about it, they are still innocent to it.

  • No

    People aren't born innocent nor guilty or any sort of sin. If nothing has been commited, there is nothing to define who they are and their innocence cannot be proven. They are indifferent to any sort of judgment, they just are until they show actions to be judged upon.
