The question of altruism is severely mangled by darwinists and their inadequate theory. And yet, no matter how many times you point it out (here maybe a hundred posts over ten years) the academic ‘iron cage’ effect takes over the basic mindset restores itself. Actually, despite a high number of visitors the established scholars NEVER deign to go anywhere near a non-conforming non-academic student of evolution. I suddenly realized a while back that Dakwins is almost totally enclosed in the paradigm mindset and never goes anywhere near critics. Is that fair? I suspect it is more than fair, and worse than we imagine.
This article looks profound, but if the basic assumptions of darwinism are wrong a complicated subject like ethics and evolution are beyond the reach of the bad theory. The result is the toxic gibberish that turns into rancid social darwinist ideology.
I have no quarrel with students of proto-moral behavior in apes, but the transition to homo sapiens is not derivable from that past, however much it might color the the ‘outside’ brand name of primate behaviorism.
