Ev Psych in the mainstream media

It’s really refreshing to read a piece so sceptical of evolutionary psychology in the mainstream media.

(My own take on the subject from a few years ago is here.)

Unfortunately, evolution is not “falsifiable” in the relevant sense, either. If anyone asks in the comment section what I mean, I’m sure Chris will offer a luminously concise explanation.

Granny wann’a banana?


A suburban [Atlanta] school board found itself in court yesterday after it tried to placate Christian fundamentalist parents by placing a sticker on its science textbooks saying evolution was “a theory, not a fact”….

“It is unconstitutional to teach only evolution,” [Marjorie Rogers, a parent who does not believe in evolution,] said. “The school board must allow the teaching of both theories of origin.”

Her efforts galvanised the fundamentalist community.

“God created earth and man in his image,” another parent, Patricia Fuller, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Leave this garbage out of the textbooks. I don’t want anybody taking care of me in a nursing home some day to think I came from a monkey.”
