At the age of six months babies can barely sit up - let along take their first tottering steps, crawl or talk.

But, according to psychologists, they have already developed a sense of moral code - and can tell the difference between good and evil.

An astonishing series of experiments is challenging the views of many psychologists and social scientists that human beings are born as 'blank slates' - and that our morality is shaped by our parents and experiences.

Instead, they suggest that the difference between good and bad may be hardwired into the brain at birth.

In one experiment involving puppets, babies aged six months old showed a strong preference to 'good' helpful characters - and rejected unhelpful, 'naughty' ones.

In another, they even acted as judge and jury. When asked to take away treats from a 'naughty' puppet, some babies went further - and dished out their own punishment with a smack on its head.

Professor Paul Bloom, a psychologist at Yale University in Connecticut, whose department has studied morality in babies for years, said: 'A growing body of evidence suggests that humans do have a rudimentary moral sense from the very start of life.

'With the help of well designed experiments, you can see glimmers of moral thought, moral judgment and moral feeling even in the first year of life.

'Some sense of good and evil seems to be bred in the bones.'

It's not about where you're From;

It's where you're Atman.

Aah...found you john.

I was waiting for a friend request that we had approve - ain't that how it used to go? Anyway, you're our friend. Does that mean we're yours too?

(Send a comment, if you fancy, for the main page.)

I'd wondered about your name change as you anticipated I cross-referenced it with the band that opened for YES to see if you were there and, well, I just basked in the mystery of it all till you explained yerself!

This may be too personal but I am curious, is it a coincidence that the same time you got off the drugs you found Zen? I have personally always found it useful to trade bad habits for good myself, just wondering...

My next submission to Buddhist Geeks sailed today, this time on Dzogchen... Perhaps next time I use Sanskrit I'll word-check with you, dharma brother!

Yes, John. A complete coincidence! Funny things, coincidences ;)
