There is always some element of hate in a person, though that doesn't mean inherently.

Yes. Its evolution its how we survived way back when. Its hilarious when people say we are born pure little angels and then society ruins us. Society and socialization makes us better. Not even close to perfect but better. I mean have you ever scene a toddler. Theyre always hitting each other and saying "mine!" and doing all sorts of bad things that we train them not to do.

" I mean have you ever scene a toddler. Theyre always hitting each other and saying "mine!" and doing all sorts of bad things that we train them not to do." Sounds just like high schoolers and college students.

1. Moral, good, bad , evil are concepts created and developed by human's philosophers and practiced within societies. 2. There are no moral in natural world. In natural, killing is normal, it's the way of way of life. Does animals feel bad or guilty when killing? Surely, no because they even dont know what is moral. 3. Human are intelligent animal however do we know about the concept of moral at first? No, until we are influenced by other's thought. Moral is the practice of society, we dont know about it naturally. 4. Because we dont know about it, our action cannot be judged by moral, good or evil. It just follow instinct, to survive.

@Rainyi: Hate isn't always evil. Hate can be good. 'It is only the (truly) virtuous man, who can love, or who can hate, others.' (Analects 4.3)

Neither as good and evil vary depending on who you ask some people view killing as bad others good so we cant be evil because some view it as good and we cant be good as some view it as evil

The evil in a person is based off of the experiences leading to the choice. If someone is raised up in a good place with nothing but good experiences that person will more than likely choose a non evil choice. If terrible things happened to this person they are more likely to choose the more evil side of choices. In the end its the choice that the person makes yes but that choice is based off their experiences in my opinion.

No. The ideal of being "evil" is in the eye of the beholder. There are some cases inwhich their are beings that are naturally bad with no reasoning behind but in most cases their is either justification or experiances that have turned the being that way. When a being is described as evil it tends to be being described that way by its opposing force or victims of its actions.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin "Hate isn't always evil. Hate can be good. 'It is only the (truly) virtuous man, who can love, or who can hate, others.' (Analects 4.3)" True, but if handled the wrong way, hate can turn into evil. And you've probably seen society, nothing is handled quickly or perfectly, if there is such a thing.

Ever heard of the "Dichotomy of man "? Human is neither truly good or truly evil, they are torn between the two. This is why humans have conflict with themselves and others because they often think they are one or the other. They are both. This is purgatory. Do you see? ^_^

Humans are neither good nor evil. They do what they must to survive both as individuals and as a society. Some of those actions are good and some are evil as perceived by other people. Those who put personal needs above societal need when those actions affect society negatively are considered evil. If the action positively affects society its considered good. A persons actions may be good or evil but from their perspective its neither.
