Biology is Destiny? Discuss

To a degree, studies indicate that some people might be predisposed to hyper-aggresion, but that nurture still plays a vital role in, say, creating homicidal sociopaths who cannot feel empathy.

As for the OP's cured pedophilia, his hiding of it would indicate his understanding of its societal "wrongness."

Does the fox enter the hen house stealthily because he is aware of the wrongness of it?

Two entirely different circumstances. If someone intentionally conceals the fact that they're a pedophile, they must on some intellectual level understand that society would frown upon that. That would indicate that they're not hapless victims of circumstance.
