Nature versus Nurture [View all]

Iím sure there are many good studies of this, with peer review. Like any good Netzien, Iíll just ignore all that and spew my opinions. Although I am interested in learning more.

I really want to believe that all folks are created equal. Itís at the core of my beliefs. Iíve always been a supporter of the Democratic Party, my first Presidential vote was for Dukakis. His ad with him in the tank was pretty lame I will concede. Whatever, he sure as hell was preferable to Bush I.

Does God/Flying Spaghetti Monster/fate dole out aptitude for intellectual aptitude and physical prowess at birth, or does everyone have an equal ability at birth and it is simply a matter of upbringing?

I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT, but despite years (admittedly on and off), am always thrilled if I can top 99 after ten rounds of bowling. I have always thrown a ball ďlike a girlĒ. I did graduate with a BSEE and took advantage of that in my career.
