• There are a lot of factors that can contribute to evil. Some predominant ones are social aspects, like there upbringing and childhood. Also genetics have been said to play a part as well. I am sure it is very hard to pinpoint what made someone evil.
  • How does a person become so kind as say, King Arthur? Each of us have virtues and flaws inherited from our parents. Each of us have good and bad experiences. If one is brought up badly then they tend to become even worse. If one is brought up righteously then one tends to become even kinder. Get the right/wrong combination and you end up with something off the scale. Chaos theory I suppose, something seemingly insignificant at the time triggers an outburst of kindness/evil.
    • Mircat
      Except for the religious parents who raised their children kindly only to have their heads bashed in by their Sunday school attending boy scout son. Kindness does not always beget kindness and abuse does not always beget angry crazy. We are born with 30 percent of our behavior predetermined. Who knows what else the study of the human genome will discover.
  • Possession?
  • As Auntie Em said, some people are born without empathy. I saw a TV show about sociopathic children. One was a little girl who was playing in a park. She saw another little girl playing with some toys, and wanted to play with them too. She grabbed at the toy, but the girl would not let go. So the first girl calmly stood up, walked over to an area with small brick border around a bed of plants, picked up a brick, went back to the other girl, clobbered her with the brick, and took the doll. That was when the person with the camera stopped shooting of course, but later there was an interview with the girl who did it- in her mind she did nothing wrong, and had no idea what the fuss was about.
  • they was born that way, out of sin see you have to parents doing wrong things in life ,drugs,lies,stealing,and they make a baby its not going to be a angle its of evil its called the devil they made the devil and no matter how cute it is, its still the devil
  • He wasn't evil. He was f*ckin mental.
  • Being born nuts and having some kind of bullying or abuse to put frosting on the cake.
    • we are dough 68
      I like frosting on my cake.
  • By living in this world and seeing how wars start from greed. He couldn't handle it like most people do since he was said to be mentally ill.
    • Hardcore Conservative
      Most wars in history were fought over the notion of conquest.
  • Satan’s influence (John 8:44).
  • It used to be considered proper to point the blame finger at parenting, home environment and society. As science has advanced and the human genome is more deeply understood, it is now known that about 30% of our behaviors are sealed in and come with us at birth. Which makes the old saying "the apple doesnt fall far from the tree" even easier to understand. Suffice to say Dahmer was born bad and anything else that happened to him was icing on the cake.
