Are some people inherently evil?


If so, where does the "evil" come from? Can it be eliminated or is it simply a natural and inevitable part of life?

    I must totally disagree that people are born evil or inherently evil. There is nothing to say and no proof that can support such an argument.

    And yet billions of people who grew up as atheist, have never heard of scriptures, but lead completely moral and happy lives without a trace of evil in their hearts.
