Genetic Determinism

By: Valdemir Mota de Menezes

Speaking of topics such as free will , and genetic heritage , I believe that many of our choices is unfortunately not a result of free choice but a genetic determinism . Not only do we inherit physical characteristics from our ancestors , but also the characteristics of personality . When Christian theology points to suffer the consequences of Adam's sin , this means that we somehow genetically we were there in our ancestor and thus have a certain degree of guilt for mistakes made by our ancestors . Likewise our ancestors are perpetuated in our day through our lives . This determinism is not absolute , we are born with a basic genetic program, but for the life we adapting to the environment and our attributes can improve or worsen our defects . A series of circumstances during life makes us go by completely unique tracks . Nobody has an identical life to another , even monozygotic twins .
