* The basic idea of some forms of fundamentalist Christianity, but especially that of Calvinism. [[AllCrimesAreEqual Due to Original Sin, humans are corrupt, evil bastards to the boot, and God hates the whole humankind]].

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': There's various examples of SCP objects who certainly think this is true, and the amount of SCP objects that were man-made certainly helps. However, one SCP object in particular plays around with this in an odd, and certainly impressive way: [[spoiler:SCP-2000, the ResetButton cloning facility & cold data storage they have to "reset" human civilization in case of catastrophe. Where does this come into effect? They can edit the output, and the logs say no more attempts to tone down humanity's violent and sociopathic tendencies will be made. Why? They're already made two ''successful'' ones, and any more would just kill humanity's drive to fight for their right to live]].
