Editorials like that probably encourage attacks on the evolutionary psychology research program. What Buss writes all seems pretty sensible, but it looks like an evolutionary just-so story--a bunch of untestable hand waving. I know we're awash in evangelicals, but it still shocks me that Buss's thesis that we're all potential killers might viewed as novel or prevocative enough to deserve 12 column inches on the LA Times editorial page. I guess it's time for Hollywood to remake Lord of the Flies or for Sony to adapt Freud to Nintendo.
