Perhaps. Then again, even the best corn will fail in bad climes, drought, and poor soil, lacking nurture, thus negating any potential it may have otherwise had from its proven genetic stock. Nature and nurture both have their functions.thedoc wrote: Putting it into more practical terms, a biology teacher I knew once said, "When you plant corn, you usually get corn.", and the same can be said for people, no matter what the idealists tell you. And I'm not talking about good and bad, More like the inherent level of potential intelligence. Some people just don't have the potential to do very well.
Anyways, this discussion originated in my unwillingness to procreate. No argument will alter that decision. I leave the future to others and wish them the best, for the little that's worth.
