Not sure I understand what this thread is about. Genetics?
For example my great-uncle Alf was killed in WW1 going over the top to kill Jerries, my paternal grandad was a troublemaker and was killed in a pub brawl, and his son (my dad) was also an outspoken argumentative type.
I've definitely inherited their genes and DNA or whatever..
PS- incidentally our family go back many generations in my home town of Leicester (England) which was once the home of the notorious Roman 14th Legion, so maybe some of their fearsome blood is in me too which would explain why I'm a PC internet wargaming champ, ha ha..
You haven't physically inherited anything physical, like genes, from your ancestors. All their genes died.
Genes are not responsible for any behaviour. They are only responsible for chemistry.
And there aren't two things, you and your genes. It's like saying my genes are responsible for me. Well, what is "me"?
All that's happening is that you are just like your family and ancestors and what runs in the family runs in the family and what doesn't run in the family doesn't run in the family. Thank god, some might say. The gene hype is science mumbo jumbo. It's useless.
Let everyone else here take heed of that. And just sober up. Drop the science posture. Smell the coffee and get normal, if its not too much to ask a civilized man to do.
