At Zets tonight, I had a rather amazing thing happen. I was talkingwith N for most of the gathering, perhaps 2 or 3 hours, chewing onthe ability to reduce all behavior to responses to selective pressures..and, while it wasn't exactly an argument, I feel nontheless that I lostthe battle :) This hasn't happened for years -- for a layperson, I think Iknow an awful lot about natural selection, a fair amount about genetics, anda good amount about the various other things that go into the field. Still,as her focus/degree intent is in evolutionary psychology, it's not a completesurprise. It was an amazing conversation. She's an amazing person. In response,I gave her some of my debate strategies that I don't tend to pass out to peopleall over..
