What do babies know about right and wrong? Perhaps more than is realized. Results of Paul Bloom's study may challenge some ingrained secular assumptions. From the source:
Dr. Bloom's study was carefully designed to challenge one very persistent and pernicious modern belief about childhood, the belief that children are moral blank slates upon which anything can be written. On this view, morality is entirely unnatural—something imposed upon children by "socialization." The most famous advocate of this view was the 18th century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Rousseau's view was not the result of careful observation of children, but of his own desire to overthrow the Christian notion that there is a God who defines the moral contours of human nature. Rousseau wanted natural man to be amoral, and so he taught that babies enter the world carrying no moral "baggage." The dual, contradictory result of Rousseau's philosophy was the spread of the notion that children were at once entirely innocent and it was society that made them bad, and the notion that since children were entirely morally unformed it was only society that could make them good. Rousseau's "children" are simultaneously those who are allowed to do anything they want because that is most natural, and those who are taken to be formless clay ready for molding social manipulators.
