So often they seem at odds.
As a pretty logical educated person, this can be difficult for me. But I find that in the struggle to understand the seeming disparity I grow as a person and am granted enlightenment beyond my own powers of deduction. Usually I am able to settle the difference in my mind, or lean on my faith to bridge the gap.
However, when leading scientists in their field do it for me it satisfies me my very core.
Yesterday I was clicking around and was floored by this quote I read:
The initial organization of the brain does not rely that much on experience...Nature provides a first draft, which experience then revises...'Built-in' does not mean unmalleable; it means organized in advance of experience." written by leading neuroscientist Dr. Marcus Kaiser.
I was seriously beaming all afternoon after reading this. Am I just the biggest nerd in the world, or what?
