PZ Myers takes Evolutionary Psychology to the shed again

Commenting on a critique of (yet another) shoddy and wildly speculative EP article, Myers has this to say:

"EP seems to have evolved a highly adaptive resistance to the evidence against it — a property that was no doubt greatly advantageous to it 10,000 years ago on the African savannah, when less intransigent theories were withering in shame at all the laughter from the hyenas and other beasts that were clever enough to see through it."

Well I just had to laugh…(*)

(*) Bonus Beatle citation. 😉
