|Dave Wisker responds to an implied assertion by StuartHarris: |
Can you name one evolutionary psychologist who says genes control all of our behavior? I honestly cannot think of even one.
If I researched it I probably could, but I won’t. Just cross out the two “alls” in the dialogue and the satirical point I was making still stands.
With Evo-psych one can conjure up an explaination for any behavior “A” or for the opposite behavior “not-A” and claim either speculation to be valid. Can you do that in a real science like physics? No (at least not yet), because evidence and mathematical/logical rigor are required.
My emphasis, and Stuart does soften his opening sentence, but shows a telling mindset if you ask me.

I don’t think you can. Take out the alls, and it’s still a misleading statement.
Of course, I am in perpetual moderation.
