“If it were actually a “universally acknowledged truth” this wouldn’t be so.”

Keep your eyes on the ball, now. I didn’t write that evolutionary psychology is a universally acknowledged truth. Although I was not explicit on this point, I think it should have been obvious that I was referring to the statement that males pursue greater quantities of copulation than females. To deny such a statement goes beyond argument and into the realm of pointless head-butting. You seem much too intelligent to want to get into a “Is too”/”Is not” argument.

By the way, I much prefer discussion, and I readily agree that evo psych has plenty of room for illuminating disagreement.

“ It is difficult to take the subject seriously.”

I’m sure that study of the subject of evo psych would solve that problem. For example, what do you think of the work of Cosmides and Toobey on the Wason selection task?
