Re: The altruism conundrum
It hasn’t been called ”Darwinism’ by actual biologists in almost 100 years.
That's only because he was incorrect in certain areas so it needed to be refined, which is fine. I wouldn't expect Charles to have all the answers back then. The problem is, he was pretty convinced that he did have all the answers and that his assumptions were factual.... Very simliar to the exact same hubris we see today.
Talking about hubris, you might wanna take a second look on your own assumptions when you declare that altruism is completely incompatible with evolution even in face of some very good evidence to the contrary presented to you in the courrent thread

But you'd have to admit that there is such a vast difference in humans than to even our closest supposed ancestors.
I don't think that is the case at all. I see many more simmilarites then differences.

THE CORE OF YOUR POSITION
nemesis_juggernaut writes:
Teamwork doesn't equate to altruistic behavior, it equates to selfish/reciprocal behavior.
That`s the core of the point you've been making throughout this thread. And that's exactly where you might be mistaken. You haven't given us anything besides your own opinion as support for this point.
