That's absurd. Humans don't have morality wired into our brains from birth. It's taught to us by society.
Many animals have certain behaviors ingrained at birth. It would be absurd to assume that human beings have none.

Instinctive behavior (like knowing how to suck to get milk, or having the desire to copulate) and understanding of morality (stealing and killing are detrimental to society) are two different things.
