An Old, Old Debate


Under the Double Helix

Though I often liked St. Augustine
I thought Pelagius had it right;
And I put my money on nurture
In the nature/nurture fight.

John Calvin was so fierce
With his predestination blues,
For me it was Arminius
Whose words bespoke good news.

But the question is not settled
As geneticists now show,
It could simply be our DNA
That determines how we grow.
