I imagine this topic might have been done before, but I checked and didn't really find anything...so ^^

I personally believe that for the most part evil is created, but then there are just some people that are "bad seeds", or people born filled with hatred.
I've known a few people that have problems with...well, hating the world, but they always have a good reason for it. Bad seeds, on the other hand, are horrible to come across. They've lived the perfect life, loving family, everything they could want, and yet still somehow can't see past their hate.
....and maybe I just believe in "bad seeds" because of a movie I watched when I was 8 or so, called The Bad Seed (or something like that) XD
Anyway, thats my little story. Your turn =]

Do you think evil is born or created?
Do you know anyone who seems to have been born evil? xP
What does the word evil mean to you?
Do you think "bad seeds" even exist?

Evil is created. No one is born with evil. There is a Chinese saying, "When someone is born, they are all kind."

^yeah. someone taught me that everyone is born pure but evil is created from your surroundings
Posted 8/19/07
the way i see it is we are all born pure so we don't hate or love yet. It all depends on how u brought up and what u see or have to go through in your upbringing. i dont think there are bad seeds i think its the world that makes them the way they are. The world is messed up and evil Murder,rape,guns, suicide, cults, religion everything is messed up nowdays .

The word "evil" often comes with religious connotations. I would rather stick to good & bad. And so your questions largely dissipate.

I think there is already a thread on evil anyway.

I certainly believe that people can be born "evil." Anyone who is around children knows that you don't have to teach them to lie (and i'd venture to say to steal and be cruel as well). It's something they figure out pretty damned quick.

I think I'd go as far as to say that no one is born good. I think morality is a learned behaviour. Up until then it's all just selfishness taken to the extreme.

I don´t believe that anyone is born evil - but humans tend to try to get advantages, even children. Ever shared something with your siblings? Like smarties? We even had to sort them by colour, otherwise we would have killed each other... And if one doesn´t grow up and learns to surpress the urge to take advantage over everybody else... Well: "evil"...
But now kidding: It is all development and I don´t know what influences play a role as children of caring parents can grow up to be perfect morons, while children of horrible parents can grow up to be nice. Surrounding can play a role as well, but none of these factors can determine the whole development of a person. Everbody makes his or her own decisions.

evil can be both born and created, when it's created its usually because someone has been abused by society to the point where they simply crack and are bent on revenge and the evil that is born, is the evil within society itself, u follow?
