This question seems to insist that one embrace the idea of good and evil, neither of which exists without a divine being.

Our morals and other cultural norms are taught. Sharing throughout the natural world is the exception until a group chooses to make it the norm.

This truth is proven time and again and anyone can quickly confirm this if they spend only 30 minutes watching a group of young children just being reared into our societal norms.

nope

babies are born pure and good and innocent
we grow up and do wrong
but we still have that good
we're just not as good as we were as babies
but that's okay
babies are supposed to be good and smell nice and whatnot
"they're our future"

Humans in general are very selfish, greedy. More so, I think, than they are charitable.

not from what I've seen

plus that's just one aspect

in terms of overall actions
I'd say it's more good

there are more non murderers than those who are murderers
there are neutral parties too
but if you take the ones who do a lot of bad and the ones that do a lot of good

I'd say the good outweighs

when humans do good things
it's still can be seen as selfish because one does it to feel good

but that kind of selfishness is not necessarily bad
