Yet is it realistic to believe that single genes can have a major impact on behavior? Much attention is currently focused on the genes that code for proteins involved in the transmission of electrical signals in the brain. If drugs such as the antidepressant Prozac work by altering the activity of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals that convey messages between nerve cells), it is plausible that inherited variations in the proteins that produce those chemicals could exert a dramatic effect on an individual's mood and temperament. But even the most diehard geneticists acknowledge that the environment plays a major role in shaping our behavior, temperament, and intelligence.
Very sad story but definitely worth a watch. Makes me consider identity as a whole within the human population. We each have this identity that we recognize as who we are but what makes this personal view is a different formula for every person. Knowledge of sexual identity, nature vs nurture were being developed at this time and I don't blame the decision to try a theory in such a case at this time. Though from my experience in all aspects of life the honest truth is the right path(except when dealing with the law :P).
I would say many circumsized men are brought up to feel that it's normal to be circumsized, but I can imagine some activists want them to feel that it is wrong to circumsize.
A culmination of more than half a century of research collected on million pairs of twins has finally concluded that the nature versus nurture debate is a draw. According to the plethora of data, both have nearly identical influences on a person’s behavior, which suggests we need to stop looking at ourselves as a result of nature versus nurture, and instead realize we are a combination of both.
Just because he didn't have a 't mean he wasn't a man.
This isn't right.
It was STILL A would have to grow up with no penis.
Its very possible.
Talk about f*cking with nature.
First, the findings are based on caregivers (usually mothers) completing behaviour report forms. Of course, it would be ideal to have observational-style data on children in a range of settings, but this is just not practical when following up large numbers of children over an extended period.
With so much attention on explaining behavior in terms either of nature or nurture, scientists at the University of California, San Francisco recently described a fascinating example of how heredity and environment can interact. Perfect pitch is the ability to recognize the absolute pitch of a musical tone without any reference note. People with perfect pitch often have relatives with the same gift, and recent studies show that perfect pitch is a highly inherited trait, quite possibly the result of a single gene.
Soon after the sisters were reunited, Schein told Bernstein what she had found out about why they were separated: They were part of a study on nature vs. nurture. It was the only study of its kind on twins separated from infancy.
'Disrespectful to religions..', give me a break... It's about time infants had human rights to reject bodily mutilation unless they understand what is happening, . later, much later. And circumcision is mutilation pure and simple, both male and female versions. It smacks of supreme arrogance to those who see no evidence of any deity. And please tell us more about the 'many' benefits you mentioned but neglected to elaborate. Was Jesus circumcised? How about Mary? Time to wake up y'all...

What is it that makes us who we really are: our life experiences or our DNA? Paula Bernstein and Elyse Schein were both born in New York City. Both women were adopted as infants and raised by loving families. They met for the first time when they were 85 years old and found they were "identical strangers."
