I am talking about a kid. Who hasn't been taught better! You have common sense because of the situations you've been through.


I'm not jumping to the middle. I'm saying your dna influences how you act from the start and situations form from that. Those situations shape you.

you may pick friends with similar interests, but unless you compare your genetic make-up to all potential friends, then your story hold no weight. And once again, you can choose whether or not to watch the barney dvd your parents put in for you. please stop assuming that young people have no free will.

your DNA has nothing to do with you crapping your pants or cooing at a ceiling fan when youre 8 months old.

Why not? It's only the instructions for your whole body.

If what youre saying is correct, then everyone's actions and their entire life would be pre-determined, thus taking free will out of the equation. I assume this is what youre getting at (being a nihilist). It is your opinion, you are completely entilted to it, bit I simply disagree. To each his own.

Please tell me you knew that dna is the instructions for your body.

Look, im not retarded. I know what DNA is and how it works. But using it describe why someone kills is retarded. DNA determines what you look like, not your actions 24 years down the line. So if youre done googling DNA and using big words to try to back up an obvioulsy flawed view, then lets get back to the point of the thread, umkay.

You didn't respond to any of my arguments on page 3, but whatever. This argument could go on forever.

Why not? It determines what you look which sometimes determines what people think of you which determines who will hangout with you which determines who you're friends are which determines what you're exposed which creates actions. Those atributes could be linked to advantage at talents or lack there of. Atributes you had no control over.

Do you know how in depth dna is?
