    How children learn...is it environment or genetics?!?

    in Lifestyle

    Everyone has a different opinion as to how children gain knowledge. Is it environment or genetics? Do you believe that children's morals and values are shaped by specific upbringing or mentally and psychologically ingrained no matter the environment?

    What Twins Can Teach Us About Genetics vs. Environment

    in Parents

    How much of our children's basic temperament, their mental health, their intelligence, their learning disabilities, and all the things that make them who they are comes from their genes and how much from their environment. What can we learn about genetics vs. environment from the ongoing twin studies, including the study of twins separated at birth? Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews three leading twin researchers: Dr. Matt McGue, Professor of Psychology at University of Minnesota, a behavioral and quantitative geneticist, Co-Director of Minnesota Twin Family Study and the Sibling Interaction and Behavior Study and Research on Adoption and adoptive dad; and Dr. Nancy Segal, Professor of Psychology, Director of the Twin Studies Center at California State University, Fullerton and author of Indivisible by Two: Lives of Extraordinary Twins and Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us About Human Behavior.

    Is Homosexuality a Choice or Genetics?

    in LGBT

    Are people born gay or straight? Much of the current media assumes the question is a solved scientific problem with all of the evidence pointing towards a genetic basis for a homosexual orientation. Contrary to this perception, there is some evidence on both sides of this question that suggests a choice or genetics.

    There are some who argue that homosexuality is a choice and others who argue that it is genetics. On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, listen in as we discuss whether homosexuality is a choice or if homosexuals are born that way.

    Inter-Racial Mixing & The Decline In Superior Black Genetics

    in Education

    Shalom and Salaam everyone, this evening I wanna discuss the issue of what race mixing has had on Carbon rich races and our genetics. Have we benefitted from it or has mixing rewarded we with illnesses, diseases and pathologies we formally (never) had or suffered from. I had a post on FB asking whether the trend in Blk men shaving their heads balds had anything to do with low self esteem the way many of them claim Sisters wearing weaves, wigs and fake hair is supposedly a indication of low self esteem or an attempt to be like the Caucasoid female. I got many responses from the males as to why they shave their heads, but none would adfmit it was because of low self esteem. Well we as always here at the 9Mind Sacred Sisterhood Cosmic Frequency show seek to get to the (truth) and the whole truth. It is my observation that African Americans have adjusted and adapted to behaviors, habits and customs that are entirely counter productive to their own racial and genetic survival simply to co-exist with the Cuacasoid Neanderthal species of the earth who by cleverly renaming themselves the white race, (FYI-there is no such race) they have convinced everyone who is non-what they are, that we are INFERIOR, pyschologcally as well as genetically. When in truth it is they who have maintained and carried all the reccessive genetic traits and thus suffer from a plethora of diseases, disabilities and pathologies that carbon based melanites aka Blk & Brn folks never had until inter species cohabition and copulation aka miscegnation was forced upon we and our tribes. The result has been absolutely shocking and yet rarely is this topic discussed or brought up enough by (we) who or literally being ERASED as a species, and what is even sadder, it is now with our own consent. Let's go deeper and discuss why we now kill and destroy ourselves for THEM.
