Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Sure Carey—seems that we now actually do more or less agree here, although I suppose I’m a bit disappointed b/c now the discussion may not deteriorate to a point that’ll enable me to utilize...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

When you say “random noise” in your last sentence, do you actually mean “random,” or do you mean “unknowns” and/or possibly unknowables?

B/c if there truly is “random”...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

The term “stochastic” is typically defined as a “process with an indeterminate or random element as opposed to a deterministic process that has no random element”—are you now...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Maybe those involved in various fields of biology are presumptuous enough to think they have “outgrown” determinism, but let’s face it Carey, biology isn’t a hard physical science, and...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

You mean like when you were “sure” that your “team was robbed,” except that it wasn’t? Don’t flatter yourself—you’re quite capable of being “sure” of the lack of “innocence”...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

So this guy gets a flat tire, as it happens, on a street right in front of a psychiatric hospital.

He removes the hubcap and then the lug nuts and places them in the hubcap; then, in the process...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Thanks Tom. That, better than anything else, I think, captures the difference of how you and I see things. Unlike you, I’m convinced that such criminals are morally responsible and that that is the...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

A “conversation?” Actually Tom, more like you're beating a dead horse. I’ll summarize one last time for you—

Essentially you’re arguing that, say, Clinton chose that Oval Office BJ, or...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Come on Tom—that’s obviously not the issue. If one’s brain is undeveloped or damaged, then one’s “free will” is obviously going to be reduced, perhaps nonexistent. Obviously, a human...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Not really, since you apparently have chosen to not answer my question . . . but that does suggest that you’ve a free will and that you’ve exercised it, doesn’t it? Of course you’ll deny it....

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

JB has provided explanations on why there’re more males in prison in various posts, including here: http://www.behavior.net/bolforums/showpost.php?p=2635&postcount=1.

Additionally, whatever...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Not necessarily—I understand Stalin studied for the priesthood b/f he became an atheist/mass murderer, and I doubt he ever held up a gas station. And I suppose there’ve been “engineers” that...

Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

So now you blame the behavior of Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. on the lack of “feedback,” a lack of “proper development and functioning” of their “remorse and regret” “module.” ...

Thumbs down Re: Evolved Psychology

Stalin & Mao were punished by “society?”—They were the “society,” back when they were in charge. Hello?

OK, so it’s your view that while individuals are “destined” to behave...

Thumbs up Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Of course TJ, psychologies, environment, and predetermination—how could it be otherwise? Sheds new light on war crimes and genocide—instead of the simplistic old defense, “I vas just following...

Thumbs up Re: Evolved Psychology - Brain Region Tied to Regret Identified

Yep. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. were all just behaving as their brains allowed. Hell TJ, that’s all you and I are doing, right? I mean what other “choice” do “we” have?
