The next logical step: jabbing that area of the brain with a sharp stick.

Yeah, I see a methodological problem.

This guy was studying German brains. He found that German murderers' brains are evil and uncaring.

But all Germans are evil and uncaring.

Basically he invented a test to detect Germans.

rev. dave: You can activate or deactivate the expression of genes by how you live your life.


That's at about the  Daily Mail level of scientific precision and accuracy.

Maybe because the headline says "German neurologist claims to have found the area of the brain where evil lurks in killers, rapists and robbers"?

What about finding and destroying the wholly and totally corrupt gene? That would make a big difference to life as we know it.

Jon iz teh kewl: Uchiha_Cycliste: The Angry Hand of God: Uchiha_Cycliste: The Angry Hand of God: So there is a region of the brain dedicated to religion.  Your turn, atheists.

Atheists have a creative/fiction part of their mind too, they just use it more productively.
your move

Exactly.  Atheists are living in their own fiction.  I wouldn't call it productive, but constantly battling yourself denying my existence is futile.

But you're not *my* god, my God is Biki, the bike god.

\Bee-key

does he ride a bike? or a 4 wheeler


I suppose he could ride a bike if he wanted to, his *IS* a god... it's sort of "where does the gorilla sit" sort of a question. What he does is encourage good bike works. You do things to help others. Wrench on their bikes, give them bikes or parts, help people out while out on rides and you do it for the purpose of helping them. You do it because you want to see more people riding a bike. So, you earn up points for your good bike works and when you want/need something you ask Biki for it and if you have enough credits you get it. Simple =D

FTFA:"He says his researches have led him to believe that some criminals have a 'genetic predisposition' to violence."


No no NO...  That is absolutely dangerous to talk about, he should know better.  People will use it as an excuse to both commit violence and as a reason to punish the innocent.  

Who you are is not determined by your genes, it is your environment and experiences.  You can activate or deactivate the expression of genes by how you live your life.

No mention of a peer-reviewed study, yet he asserts:

'But when I will look at young people, and I see there are developmental disorders in the lower forehead brain, I can say that there is a felon in the making with 66 per cent probability. "

I also admire the precision.
