Researchers in baby psychology at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut say that they have gathered evidence that suggests babies demonstrate a “rudimentary” moral sense rather than having a blank mental slate that would be formed by their interactions with older people and their experiences. This morality is evident very soon after birth.
“With the help of well-designed experiments, you can see glimmers of moral thought, moral judgment and moral feeling even in the first year of life,” said Professor Paul Bloom, who has devoted years of study to observing how moral sense can develop in babies. “A growing body of evidence suggests that humans do have a rudimentary moral sense from the very start of life.”
What the researchers don’t investigate is that, even while they have demonstrated that the youngest of children have a conscience, sinful human beings choose to disobey God.
