      Then what are you doing here? Since you do not care what we think? Please feel free to leave. There is no anchor tied to your behind. There is no rational reason to be altruistic nor is anything required over cruel and sarcastic like your posts. If you think altruism is so great then altruism is not reflected in your posts. Practice what you preach or take it on down the road.

        LOL! The evo-psycho failure continues folks. The religious notion that altruism has anything to do with Darwinism is a failed joke based on nothing more than silly evo “just-so” stories.
        Sociobiology and evo-psycho are so fanciful that even some Darwinists criticize them for consisting of nothing more than “just-so” stories. A century ago, Rudyard Kipling wrote entertaining but scientifically meaningless “just-so stories” about how the camel got its hump, how leopards got their spots, and so on. In 1978, Harvard evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould faulted sociobiology for relying on just-so stories in which “virtuosity in invention replaces testability as the criterion for acceptance.” (Jonathan Wells)
        One more failed EvoOP. Next.

          More correctly, folks - the egregious scientific ignorance of TeamEvo only leaves one shaking his/her head and wondering where do they get these guys?

          Altruism has nothing to do with failed Darwinism.

            Altruism = taking a beating for Darwinism to save the dying science

                We observe altruism in every social species.
                Only religious fundamentalists fail to show signs of altruism.
                When evil is powerful, good men are silenced.

                    Look the psycho creo failure continues. Won't address a single point. Just meaningless trolling and maybe mom will come in to defend her creo child.

                      Here's one of them:

                      According to evolutionary theory, altruism shouldn’t exist. Natural selection favors adaptations that increase fitness, an individual’s ability to survive and reproduce. Altruism does the opposite. Selfless actors aren’t rewarded with extra offspring—instead, altruism often comes with a penalty. A prairie dog whistles to warn others of a hawk attack, so the hawk swoops straight down to eat the whistler. Worker ants spend their lives feeding a queen, missing the chance to pass on their individual genes. The best way to reproduce is to be selfish.

                          Your quoted article is an abyss of ignorance. Worker queens do promote their own genes when they feed the queen. They are more closely related (3/4) than mammalian siblings. Selection works on reproduction of genes, not on reproduction of individuals. Inclusive fitness and kin selection are firm parts of the Theory of Evolution.

                              Yet another case of a creationist quote mining for a section that appears to support their argument, while ignoring the next paragraph which refutes it.

                                No. We heard it decades ago, and centuries ago, whenever first year students have blundered.

                                And Yale is known for producing journalists, politicians, lawyers, and corporate CEOs.
                                Not biologists.
                                And your first year journalism student, Emily Boring, STILL managed to refute creationism, if only by accident.
