    If one thinks that there ain't no culture at all, but only a matter of
    degree of behaviors, then that is quite a different way of looking at it.

    And I'm not sure it ain't a subset of the larger shift of thinking that
    the darwinian leap one has to make to grant all to evolution that
    evolution demands is.

    It certainly seems to walk hand in hand with this dangerous idea.
