Nature vs Nurture is a debate thats been going on for ages. My opinion is that neither nature nor nurtur are more important than the other. Now cast your votes. If your thoughts are the same as mine, put it in the comments box.

Salutations!!!
Nice topic...

I would like to challenge your positon on nature vs. nurture on the basis that the superiority of nurture is evidenced by the advancement of the human species, i.e., we take things from nature and modify/cultivate them for our own purposes. If we accepted (or even regarded as equal to nurture) the purposes/ends acribed by nature we would never have reached our current level of development, and whether deemed good or bad, it is irrefutable that it (our nurture/cultivation) has produced changes to our environment/situation far beyond the assignment derived from nature.
