-I don't think external influences can change people.
Education, environment, dominant culture, or TV, peer pressure, scientific theories..etc have no effect on people, i know it sounds strange but i believe it's the truth. For example, if Hitler was born and raised in another country, would he have shown a more gentle nature? what if Hitler and Martin Luther King switched environments!

Ahmad,

I definitely think external infuences can change people. For instance a person could be exposed to a good book or website and substantially improve ( change )
their moral character from evil to good.
I'm sure your website is written with
the intention of changing people
for the better.
Another example - A child with a strong influence
of a good father will be much better off
than the same child raised without a father presence. I could give 1001 other examples
showing the incorrectness of the view expressed in the sentence:

"-I don't think external influences can change people.
Education, environment, dominant culture, or TV, peer pressure, scientific theories..etc have no effect on people,"

"For example, if Hitler was born and raised in another country, would he have shown a more gentle nature"?

Most probably 99.9999% for sure YES.

So, Ahmad, I think you meant something other than
what you wrote because you're too smart
to write something that is obviously false.
