Egads! I hope that you all can discern between sociobiololical and
selectionist frameworks, as my conversations with Dave Rindos would
lead me to believe that he draws few parallel between SB frameworks and
his own (which I personally feel epitomize selectionism at it
foremost...) I've forwarded on to him a few selections from this
thread, and would ferverently argue that the views promoted in this
thread are at odds with general *selectionist* thought, as proposed by
Dunnell and Rindos...
