Go to: Should Depressed People Avoid Having Children?

TobySaunders's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by TobySaunders

Only 50% of our behavior is genetic though... maybe there is a set of thievery genes, but people with those wouldn't be condemned to be thieves given a good environment. I used to believe I had depression, like a disease, & that very belief made it a self-fulfilling prophecy so I'm a fan of being positive & committed to a moral lifestyle (by living for the sake of preventing suffering & promoting wellness). My hunch is that too much is made of depression genes & not enough attention is given to the environmental factors which make up the other 50% of human behavior, regarding this issue.

Go to: Is Richard Dawkins an ape?

TobySaunders's Avatar Jump to comment 55 by TobySaunders

I don't want to read the rest of that piece... those claims about non-human apes being incapable of considering the future or reflecting on their existence is bogus, & that semantic stuff about humans not being apes is pathetic.

Go to: Christians have no right to wear cross at work, says Government

That's an interesting issue. If people freak out lots & cause massive damage then maybe it would be best to succumb to their neuroses & let them show their offensive & crazy murder icons, but otherwise, as employees must wear the employers required uniform for better or worse & not be allowed to wear funny hats for religious reasons,or, bikinis or something weird or funny for religious reasons either.

I wouldn't bother go to the Telegraph website though... it gets paid for web-hits, as any site with ads on it does, so by visiting it you are in effect enabling companies to give money to it. I'd rather let a more progressive group or person do that (painstaking) research.
