Are newborn human babies born with:

1-Original sin; they are born bad.

2-Tabula rasa; a blank slate, neither good nor bad.

3-Inate goodness; they are born good.

4-Other- Explain.

Overall, a blank slate is the truest in my opinion, but there might be a mix. Some of it may be innate good, some may be innate bad, but most is blank.

I think they are born with a clean slate, but I also think we all have good and evil tenancies within us.

According to the Bible, people are born with original sin. Any thoughts on that?

i think babies are born with a unique brain that may be more likely to develop problems. however, in my observation, a child's environment seems to have A LOT to do with how they turn out. therefore, i think everyone is born with a "blank slate" but that some babies have more potential to turn evil than others.

So, was Hitler born with a blank slate? Was there something in his brain are birth that predisposed him to evil tendencies? Or, did something happen in his childhood/youth to turn him evil?

I think Hitler had a chemical imbalance in his brain in combination with a series of events throughout his life that ultimately led him to be evil.

was Hitler born with that chemical imbalance, or did it come later in life?

I think I learned in psychology that most mental illnesses onset in the early 20's.
