The Blank Slate

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/steven_pinker_chalks_it_up_to_the_blank_slate.html

This video is of Steven Pinker talking about the idea of being born with a blank state and no information being in your brain prior to coming into the world. He explains why this can not and is not true. He concludes that children are shaped not by their parents over the long run, but in their genes, culture, and for the most part by chance.
