[evol-psych] Re: News: Neuroscience reveals brain differences between Republicans and Democrats
I'm not sure of your position, but there is general agreement among
neuroscientists that the female and male brains are different in several
important respects, both physiologically and functionally.
I believe it is misleading to attribute religiously-based beliefs to
either side of the American political divide, right and left. The
religious right was once firmly implanted within the left-leading
Democrat party. Today, they are aligned with the Republican party
because of its general preference for local rather than federal control
over most government affairs.

What a LOL!

- Sonny - I don't know if I'd call it a position my end, but certainly
what you say certainly adds up for me.
I was talking about Left/Right at the level of the Nature/Nurture
debate...not politics. Sorry for any confusion caused about that.
