Or the person might be familiar with anthropology and know you are wrong. 800 years ago, sure. But evidence suggests that human-on-human violence was not commonplace until people stopped being egalitarian. It was after the formation of social systems that supported concepts like possessions and casts that we get evidence of humans killing other humans. So no, it is not in human nature to kill others, it is in our social construct.

I understand that in modern society that most of you are sheltered sheep, but the truth of the matter is: Killing other human beings is perfectly natural, and if you had lived 800 years ago, you likely would have killed or been killed by another human being. Anyone who disagrees is a sheltered kid who was obviously from circumstances fortunate enough to avoid Military Service.
The construction of society is in our nature.
societies sure, but the ones we have chosen have nothing to do with our inherent nature or there wouldn't be so many different types. Egalitarian is a type of society that was formed which did not show evidence of human-on-human violence.
