    But if you truly believe that it's all in the nurturing, then people aren't born good or bad, they are neutral until their environment influences them one way or the other.
    But what about my mother love scenario. That was a logical deduction of the process of how if we feel irrational love for someone, and it causes us to do good by them regardless of our own needs, then isn't that indicative of the inherent goodness of man?

    How can it not be?

    Not to be rude, but without being a firsthand example, can he learn it any more effectively than you learn that no person is born bad?

    You seem to both be good people who do not hurt other people, so any look into the life of a person who does bad things is going to be based on at best secondhand data, and perhaps the analysis of (perhaps clashing) experts in the field of psychology.

    To state the answer with full presumption is absurd. You can only do so with the information provided to you.

    It's not obvious at all, and you really need to stop begging the question. There's not even anything that "needs" to be argued. It's as easy as saying, "I think environmental causes can influence someone's development" -- that's not really a controversial statement at all -- and letting it go at that rather than trying to deny biological influences are at all at play.

    The reality is that there are obvious biological influences on development that contribute to all the things you've been trying to write off as purely environmental -- check out the hormonal mechanisms that happen in moms when they're pregnant or after birth, and the same thing for dads (their testosterone drops, etc.) The instinctual drives are implements by physical factors, they just do not happen magically. However, the same level of instinct is not apparent in all people; there's an element of choice, and there's an element of preprogramming.

    We also know that damage to certain brain centers can radically change someone's personality, not just cognitively but emotionally and also in terms of regulating one's behavior. This is not a debatable point, it's been recorded via case study. This is why the idea that someone might not have an active empathetic center in their brain, leading to inability to sense emotion cues from others, has had so much support.

    Really, there is room for the table both for the bio people and the environmental people. Humans are quite an adaptable species, we have a lot of bio programming that we then can still choose how we're going to respond to. Still, a lot of what we "abstract" is rooted in the physical and biology, it is implemented through those physical structures.

I am not fixated on anything, on the contrary I try to stay open to all possibilities. If anything, you're the one refusing to even consider another opinion.

    I answered this in my long post in answer to yours, but you said you didn't want to keep arguing about it and didn't reply, just to bring it up again with someone else.

    Whatever, it's all at your pleasure

    Her contradiction lies in the idea that people are inherently good, yet they are products of their upbringing. In the presence of strong belief, logic has no effect. It's like arguing with a Christian that God doesn't exist or can't be proved to exist: faith or feelings over reason.

    Mal said he learned people could be born bad. I asked him to relate that experience. He hasn't yet.


    I can't believe this isn't obvious to y'all. But okay. Then show me one person who's antisocial who hasn't endured some form of child abuse.


    There was a neurodevelopmental psychologist in the 80's who said the same thing with a different twist: Show me one person in prison who had been breastfed the first two years of his life. It's nearly impossible to do.


    You cannot help your genes. But your behavior is more a result of your environment than anything else, though you can still be good in the face of ANA. But the converse is not true. You cannot be [really] bad without it.


    Antisocial behavior is learned. And that is why I believe it can be unlearned, if someone wanted to try hard enough. Man's inner core is inherently good. I proved that with my Mother-Love scenario. No one has tackled that argument yet, or given me a personal example of someone born bad (who hasn't suffered ANA).

    Why does everything have to be learned? Kids are smart enough to develop behaviors on their own.

    Idk. Would it be Si to see his ex in every brunette young woman, thus, want to kill her because of the impression left by shared physical similarities?
