We're saying you can't establish with any kind of certainty how these genes affect actual behavior - or to what degree they're involved in any given criminal.
You can detect a correlation between certain defects or "genes" and violent behavior - but only in the most general sense. You have no idea if those genes are the only difference - and you certainly have no idea what to do about it.
You're saying "all criminals are bad" - and yet you're trying to convince people they're born that way.
That's just as bad as being a racist bigot - which you like to claim everyone is.
Again - if people are born bad, then why do they deserve punishment? Is that what you consider fair and just?
It's not clear and it's not "accepted scientific theory" that murderers are born murderers.
That's your own personal pet theory with absolutely no tangible "evidence" to back it up.
