    The theories have proven highly predictive

    You're off on a tangent now, about behavior that doesn't bear relation to your previous post.

    The Red Queen goes into detail about laws of the Catholic Church explained in terms of controlling genes.

    I don't think the church cared about controlling genes, but behavior.  And not just of women, but men also.  But it's how the church wanted that behavior controlled that has set the pattern of male/female roles.  

    And the simple fact is, since it was men setting the behavior patterns, those patterns were set for mens benefit.

    Another time.

      men and women.  I hope I never implied otherwise.  It could be argued that control of women more usually takes the form of limiting movement where control of men is more likely through violence enforced hierarchy, but I hope I never implied that only women were being controlled.  It so happens that the thing on my mind in these discussions is the heartbreaking control of a particular woman through murder.

      I don't see the tangent, but I'll leave that one alone.

      If it's our freedom they hate, they must love Bush's response to the WTC attacks.

      You've done made me stay up way too late.

      Thanks for the stimulating discussion.

      More later.
