Yet another ad hom. You just can't help yourself can you?

Bare assertions are not a critique. A critique includes justified reasoning. See, even here you are simply making proclamations without any argument to support it at all.

Just quit ad homing and making it personal. I'm not projecting. I'm speaking from personal experience. Something you evidently lack.

No, on average the human brain does not become that of an adult until

Well in that case, as I've already mentioned, my morals are fine.

And as already mentioned, "There's a difference between "fine" and resilient under stress
Fine is all encompassing. Resiliently fine if you prefer.
