Comment Nature vs Nurture Debate (Score 2) 445

The old "Nature vs Nurture" debate again. Nature sets boundaries on certain attributes. Nurture determines where you fall between your min and max potential values. Take height for an example. A person may have the potential to be between 5'6" and 6' tall due to genetics/nature. Nurture/nutrition will determine where a person falls between these potential values. The same is true for many attributes.
