Re: ...a dozen healthy infants...

I suppose that is the point. Man has no freedom. You say we are responsible for our acts of freedom, but if God has predetermined everything, how are we responsible? And we can take that predetermination to a very basic level. Suppose there are two children: A and B A grows up in a loving home, with...

Re: ...a dozen healthy infants...

What I was trying to say is that we are more like robots than free beings. It also is pretty obvious what causes homosexuality: environment and genetics. What else is there?

...a dozen healthy infants...

"Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I'll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select--doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant-chief, and, yes, even beggarman and thief, regardless of his tale...

Re: Please help

Read the ScrewTape Letters a long time ago. Maybe I'll look through it again. Thanks for the suggestion.
