Scientists trace neural links between guilt, co-operation - CTV News

Interesting.... So we seem to be 'hardwired' to act in certain moral ways. For me this is just another bit of proof that God created us to be a social people - concerned about the welfare of others. The fact that some of us are able to overcome this biological programming so that we become self-centered and selfish is evidence that our nature can indeed be corrupted.


Put in religious terms, we are 'wired' to love God and each other. Sin corrupts this programming by turning us in upon ourselves. I appreciate that there are other ways to interpret these results. No doubt others will see these results as disproving the existence of God. It's simply a case of understanding which set of preconceived notions we bring to the analysis.
