What they are saying is that pro-social (sharing and caring) behavoir is a natural part of biological development initially. And that growth or decay of such tendencies are more 'nurtured' by home, family and other close interpersonal modeling.


I saw this yesterday out and about but wasn't here at ATS - was so hoping this would get posted

So, we are born good

I know it's not that simple - but, I feel pretty good about being able to say it anyhow


You know, now that I think about it, I think it is just that simple in the vast majority of cases.

It's what the science seems to indicate and is in direct contradiction of 'original sin' ideologies. We have to learn to be mean and hateful and we learn how to act/be from those closest to us during our early years. Monkey see, monkey do as it were.
