From Nancy Verrier
(and my user page):
Lack of genetic markers makes the child feel as if she doesn't fit, doesn't belong. Child has to figure out how to be in the family. Hypervigilant. Tries to adapt.
Children are not a "blank slate" at birth. Most of personality traits are genetic (but personality must be distinguished from behavioral coping style.) Adoptive parents cannot expect the child to be like them.

On the other hand, the answers these people gave to the words Democrat or Republican had a very weak genetic basis. In politics, genes help us understand fundamental attitudesthat is, whether we are liberal or conservativebut do not explain what party we choose to join.
Nonsense driven by lack of expected correlation so Wilson dismisses it out of hand. Very much like global warming nuts.

OK Red Sox fans here is the truth. We YANKEES spend more on our trophy polish than you guys spend on your entire roster. And we are gonna get some more trophies this year!! Count on it!

Darwin did say that “the character of the american people” and “the progress of the United States” were both due to natural selection, and therefore hereditary. I bet Americans thought that faith, values, goals, desires, beliefs, self-motivation, love of liberty and hard work had something to do with the character of the American people and the progress of the USA. Good thing we have Darwin and biological science to disabuse americans of such delusions.

Yet if you ask who in this country has prevented people from speaking on college campuses, it is overwhelmingly leftists. If you ask who storms the streets and shatters the windows of Starbucks coffee shops to protest the World Trade Organization, it is overwhelmingly leftists. If you ask who produces campus codes that infringe on free speech, it is overwhelmingly leftists. If you ask who invaded the classroom of my late colleague Richard Herrnstein and tried to prevent him from teaching, it was overwhelmingly leftists.
Hmmmm I wonder which side sues people because they're injecting their religion into public, schools, science classes, etc. etc. etc.

As long as the genetic side does not crowd out the Free Will it should be tolerated as a field of study, even encouraged, but not worshipped.

Sorry about this. I should have replied to GGG offline.

Funny... My family: Mom, Dad, 2 sisters, 1 brother... are all hard core liberals, EXCEPT FOR ME... and I am the first born!
