  • Yes....yes I ex's mom is. The day I found out that I was having a girl (Feb 14th, 2005) she actually said that she hated me. She said it was because I took her day away from her (her anniversary). I thought she would be happy to find out she was going to have a granddaughter after only having grandsons and sons. To this day she still hates me and wants nothing to do with my kids.

  • Do you mean born evil? If that's the case then... no. Mental illness pretty much explains most cases of what people deem 'evil'. Other than that it could be any number of contributing factors like society, parenting or lack thereof, drug and alcohol abuse, etc. that lead to a person and/or their actions being seen as 'evil'.

  • unfortunately yes , i have learned a lot in the last couple of years . i used to believe that no one could be truly purly evil , but apperently they can . It s a sad thing to notice , but some people just are. i m not sure what makes up an evil person , i m sure there are many factors .....genes, up bringing , society, as mentioned before drug abuse (though i don t think pure drug or alc. abuse could make a "normal " person evil). but what ever the contributing factors are if they all fall into place , i guess you get an evil person.

  • Evil? No. Can people be mean spirited, angry, malicious? Absolutely. But I don't necessarily believe in "evil" per say.

  • Absolutely!!!!there are people out there with out a concious, remorse, etc. some can be attributed to mental illness but not all.

  • Sociopaths show little if any remorse or guilt, so their actions are often considered 'evil'. Criminal behavior, violence, abuse and cruel acts are very common, and they don't care what happens to their victims as long as they don't get punished for it.

  • Nope. Evil is a concept, not a condition.
