Yes people are BORN evil.
No people are not BORN evil.
We are imperfect. But Jesus died in the cross to pay for our sins.
A tendency to do evil is evil. People naturally want to have more power than the person next to him/her and the person next to him/her. So on and so forth. I believe that people are born evil, but if they are raised "properly" then the evil desire should fall. If they are not raised "properly" then the evil desire will grow. I use quotations around the word proper, because everyone has a different way of thinking what is proper for them. That being said since everyone has a different definition of proper, the evil desire may still exist in other peoples' eyes. So possibly the evil desire stays within people forever, but some have learned to control it rather than let it loose.
My kids came pre-programmed with personality, good and bad
yes because we all have flaws
I think people are born with the capacity to commit evil. We all probably do, at some point in our lives. Now, I'm not saying that babies are evil. They don't understand the world well enough yet to be evil. Also they are not smart enough; their brains are still developing. So yes, you are born with a bit of evil. But if you try to do good and are sorry for the small acts of evil that you commit, you will be just fine in the long run.
All humans are born with only their interests in mind, we learn to cooperate and we learn what is "okay" and what is "not okay."
No light without darkness.
Yes, babies are born into sin and every mother knows that a baby must be taught not to bite, kick or slap others.
my toes are cold so i must be evil
They are not born evil, they are born with the tendancy to do evil.
I'm just going to keep up with the poll.
I would say that people have a tendency for selfishness, which cannot be considered 'evil' unless it is purely malicious. Any deed done for one's personal survival can be forgiven, unless that deed needlessly contradicts the rights of another individual. Evolution tells us that any deed, no matter how selfless, if it is not rooted in selfishness, is ultimately stupid.
I don't believe in good and evil
ill have to say no because evil is based off perspective and your perspective changes over time so in all honestly i think no one is evil if you look at it from there perspective.
Everyone is born WITH THE POTENTIAL to do evil.
It is DESTINY!!! Babies are not evil!!!!
People aren't born evil. I see where you are coming from, but it's not true. People become evil from bad parenting or lack of good parent figures. Only hurt people hurt people.
WE are all born with an impulsive side but not an evil one.
It's a person's influences and curiosity that makes them commit something "evil". Frankly I don't think anyone is evil.
They have to have shitty experiences to make em evil(which was the case with Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, Richard Ramirez, and Lawrence Bittaker).
my class is making me do this
