As always, Wednesday’s Afternoon Inquisition comes courtesy of last week’s Comment o’ the Week winner. That means that northernskeptic gets a shot at it today:
I decided to spend Sunday afternoon taking in a movie and so I went to see Pixar’s Up. I won’t spoil the film but there were times when there wasn’t a dry eye in the theatre, my own included. After the movie was over and I dried my tears with some twitter therapy I began thinking about how the film was able to elicit this response from such a large number of people. Knowing there are people who are not moved by such displays lead me to today’s question.
Do you think empathy is a learned behaviour, or is it hardwired?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear daily at 3pm ET.
