Are people born evil
Scientists believe they’ve identified the genes responsible for high levels of rage and violence – does this mean some people are evil from birth?
It's the environment around , the society that conditions them a certain way
As for the scientists pointing out, i have not come across any study that suggests that.
I too am inclined towards the nurture arguement.
However there are those who would argue otherwise -

There are some things that can make the brain/mind more prone to violence and rage yes. Does that make someone "evil" no. There are evil choices not evil people. Labeling people as "good" and "evil" is overly simplistic. There are a myriad of components that determine whether an individual will do harmful things or not.
situations make man evil
but everyone is born good
then this throws up the arguement of what or who created the situation.
I would say as humans we all have a greater capacity to love and be good than we do the opposite, however the good is rarely acknowledged whereas the bad is immediately seen
