Understanding Understanding Genetics - Marc Hauser Interview 1

[Only registered users see links. ]

You've written that the human sense of right and wrong has evolved. If we have a moral instinct, why did it evolve? What are the advantages? - An interview with Marc Hauser at the Future of Science Conference in Venice, Italy September 2006.


So the ramifications here are enormous, for parenting, school, religion. Isn't that where most people think they get their sense of right and wrong from? - An interview with Marc Hauser at the Future of Science Conference in Venice, Italy September 2006.

If our moral instinct, and guilt along with it, are inherited, do you foresee a way in the future to pinpoint that this gene does this, or this gene does that? - An interview with Marc Hauser at the Future of Science Conference in Venice, Italy September 2006.

Are we still evolving? If so, is our moral instinct evolving as well? - An interview with Marc Hauser at the Future of Science Conference in Venice, Italy September 2006.

Some think we're not evolving anymore, that natural selection requires isolation. You don't share that view?

Let's talk about evolution in the United States. If you don't accept evolution, how can you learn biology? Or genetics?

By the way my view is I don't agree at all with him. There is no evidence that morality is inherited.

There is no evidence that serial murderers run in the family. Where is this guy getting his data from???

We are a long way from finding out about emotions and morality. Genetics cannot explain this.
