Hi Kenneth Van Oost -

I'm sure a rapist feels the same way, which is perhaps the core statement
that that infamous book that came out a few months ago generated so much
>it makes you wonder if evolution is so blind to the future

Mate selection _seems_ not to be blind to the future, but, it's also
largely a function of responses and behaviors that were selected for, not
Like the good cliché says, put it to a committee to design, and you'll
get a camel (or an SUV) where a horse (or a well-maintained society)

Yes, I do see the SUV as the most blatant and glaring augury of
dissolution and disease in the social fabric....
