Some people emphasizes that the true human behavior emerges from the inclination to

indulge in evil. Corruption has always dominantly manifested within humans in greed
and deceit. People have to learn to be virtuous. Furthermore, it justifies the reason for
the decadence and the crimes within society such as murder, rape, and thievery. Even
throughout history, it has been documented that mankind has always been involved in
warfare and conflicts. Therefore, without civilization to enforce ethic standards, humans
lack the necessary conditioning to suppress those instincts of immorality. However,
despite the reinforcement of orthodox principles—people are unable to overcome their
nature and continue to commit dishonesty in more common forms in ordinary life.

The Good
Humans possess the innate disposition to act in honest and charitable intentions.
Compassion is found in from the minor, generous acts that helps others in need to the
organizations that are established to support the “common good” causes. Although it is
society that can corrupt others and attempt to interfere with the integrity in human
nature through depraved influence, it is also social principles that conventionally
endorse honorable qualities in people and condemn the unacceptable behavior. Humans
are natural competent to recognize wrongdoing because of their inner, virtuous
conscience that compels goodness.

Religiously, the traditional Christian bible indicated that the first humans Adam and Eve
was prominently created with God’s image in spiritual and moral perfection, as well as

allowed them to realize their nakedness, signifying the original sin.

Their disobedience caused the fall of man: God forced them out from the Garden of
Eden and punished them with Death, Labor, and Birth. As a consequence, descendants
of Adam and Eve inherit the nature to sin. Sin is when one has challenged the will of
God as God had created humans to embody the paragon of righteousness. However,
the ability to sin does not equivocate to the essence of evil. Thus, mankind is granted
the inherent choice and the capacity to proceed with good or succumb to evil.

Blank Slate
Good and evil are subjective concepts that diverge depending on individual
interpretations and are conceived as contrasting ideas. As a result, humans are born
neutral because as babies, they lack the mental development to understand and
perceive the good and evil that are only terms to delineate a certain behavior in
