Do you believe that either or both of the boys were "born bad" - that Eric and/or Dylan suffered from some profound psychological problem (psychopathy, etc.) that keeps someone from living a normal, happy, healthy life?

Why does anyone do anything?

No, I don't think they were born bad. I think they both had undiagnosed mental illnesses.

"Oh well, whatever, nevermind".

Nature vs. Nurture.

As well as the Diathesis Stress Model.

Many people used to be very happy children, but in their adult years they develop thoughts so warped that would easily fit into some psychiatry handbook. Time just can change some of your beliefs, and when something you deeply cared for crumbles down, the worst in us might surface. Also, neurobiology plays its part. The way you show off anger is strictly personal, and it depends mostly on the wiring of the frontal lobes and the density of the superior longitudinal fasciculus (it strenghtens the connectivity between hemispheres). So I would say that both nature and nurture are the leaders in this game...

I don't believe that either of them were born bad. But I do think that it's possible to indeed be born "bad". You come into this world with a hardwired personality and nothing can change that on a deeper level.

Falling out of airplanes and hiding out in holes
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
Jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head
Now everybody dancing, the dance of the dead
The dance of the dead, the dance of the dead

Genetics are pretty powerful stuff.

Just like a new baby can be born having their grandmother's cheek mole, they can also be born carrying their great grandfather's mental illness.

So I'd say it could go half and half, in E&D's case. Who knows though, since it's now impossible to figure out.
