I think it's true that young guys who go nude are going to be doing it in an atmosphere that is all about how sexualy atractive they are. Whereas older guys (and women)can be more motivaed by comfort and self acceptance.

And what kind of eugenisist is spreading that garbage? Teasing apart the relationship between "drive" and "intelligence" and number of offspring is hard. And there's a huge bias, as the people who do this sort of thing are typically of the professional classes and likely to regard themselves as "in...

Actually I'd heard that there was some concern that the most "successful" people , especially in the industrialized world tend to limit the number of offspring they have, while those with less drive or intelligence are still having many children. Since evolution is more concerned with who successful...

Thanks Penguin I might have to look into that for other projects but it leaves the problem of having a big piece to haul home afterwards.

I'm hoping that we eventually emerge from the current world views into a more "enlightened" philosophy as stated by TITWI. However, history can be viewed as a pendulum swing. We spent 500 years swinging toward the Empirical Paradigm. Starting with the humanist movement that started the Renaissance a...
