Evil nature or nurture

I have had this same debate with people over and over again. People who say that there are some people who are born evil. Psychopaths, serial killers and paedophiles for instance. Then, there are those that say it is all to do with the way you were raised, putting the blame squarely on the parents.

So is that it? Paedophiles, Psychopaths and Serial Killers The people above, and some others, have a malfunction in their brain that makes it possible for them to do the horrific acts they commit.

What makes them evil is the fact that they act on these feelings. We all have the capacity to kill and do unspeakable things.

Imagine yourself in traffic and someone cuts you off. What goes wrong in the people above is that their impulse control is not working. They get these feelings and actually act on them. Why do they act on feelings? Because that is what they have been taught. Maybe the way you should look at it, however, is not as a question of blame.

So Is It all Down to Parenting? There are a lot of factors at play, which brings it back to nature versus nurture. I personally believe they are external factors, hence most certainly not nature. There is also the fact that people from the exact same household, with the exact same parents, can turn out to be completely different.

I think, here, intelligence has a big part to play in it as well.

It is about being able to recognise when you have a choice to make and having the tools to make that choice and to choose the right decision. So is anybody ever born evil? Does that mean that anybody that had the exact same life as, say, John Wayne Gayce would end up being John Wayne Gayce?

It is a culmination of lots of different factors and it is bringing all these factors together that determines whether someone chooses to be good or evil.The age-old question of whether human traits are determined by nature or nurture has been answered, a team of researchers say.
