Re: Human culture is a result of sexual selection?

Words mean things, though: it's true what you say about how sexual selection is indeed natural selection inasmuch as the opposite sex is part of nature: but if we were to use the term natural selection in the way you do here we'd literally have to include all things under natural selection, includin...

Besides, if you wanted to pick a defining feature of Arabic or Islamic society, misogyny isn't really valid. Misogyny is all over the place, unfortunately, and just as rife in the West as it is in the Middle East. Not convinced of this: We in the Western World don't really stone our adultressess an...

Well: no. A planet need not be planet-sized at all... for example, you could have a slab of material tidally locked to whatever it is orbiting, and also be small enough to not have sufficient mass to coalesce into a ball. it spins so fast that its gravity comes from spin and not mass... and also, it...
