Humans are evil from the time we are born. Morals come from our brains rewarding itself for what it taught itself was "good" at a young age, but are overall irrelevant. A wild man, raised In the forest would function based on the basic instincts mate, kill, eat, not morals. Morals have to be taught. When man gives a gift it is so he can feel better about HIMSELF. When in a conversation man listens to the other person anticipating THEIR reply. Man crys at funerals (not for the deceased) because HE misses them an may not see them again. Man has no "morals from God" but is inherently what society considers "evil".

So cons whole premise concerns feral men with no human contact? We"re a social species and will obviously act selfishly if we don"t have human contact because there are no humans to act selflessly towards.

Would pro have to argue that ALL humans are inherently good and born with morals? Or can I argue that majority are? Just the fact that psychopaths exist and were basically "born that way" would disprove anyone who suggests all humans are born with morals.

So, it would be a completely unfair debate if pro had to argue ALL humans are born with morals.
