It depends the man on how he is exposed to his surrounding. If he is expose to evil regularly then he is evil in nature.

I think we have both, evil seed and good seed in us. It's just depend on our decission which way we will take. A baby can't do logic think. So they were not born good or evil.

We are by nature good. (I would like to believe that fact!) I guess what makes us bad is the wrong decisions we make in our life.

I belive that the nature of man is good. But the minds of men are easily corruptible...we can easily be decieved. Look at Adam's temptation by the snake...

observing the general human behaviour it seems that humans are originally good at heart, but they are constantly exposed to evil and are very much attracted towards evil. Hece they keep doing bad. But in many situations many bad people also turned into angels. But speaking in religious point of view, according to vedanta bopth good and bad are same and are either side of the same coin. Good is like one thorn used to remove the evil thorn which is struck to us, but later we should discard both of them. Both have evoled from god himself.

I think man by nature is evil.Only the circumstances and the fear of society make him good.With so many social restrictions there are still so many people who commit crime.With no social restrictions and legal punishments man can go to any level of crime.Man is a tiger in a cow's skin.Correct me if Iam wrong.

I feel like it is mans nature to be good. All people have the capacity to care about others. It is the society and environment that produces the evil. A child raised without good will have more chances for evil. Evil, in my opinion, is the result of sickness, greed, envy or attention seeking.

Man is inherantly BOTH from the moment he or she is born. In my opinion. It doesn't matter how evil or good they are, it's the point that they have the potential for great and wonderful things or abjectly terrible ones. We all have a choice, but rejectig one side of ourselves is both futile and self-harming, we're both for a reason. But only by accepting both sides of ourselves and minding our actions can we be decent people. But that's just my opinion..lol.
