At Forgoodreason.org, I’m listening to an interview about how our instincts have become “supernormal” in our evolution to the point where it’s starting to be detrimental to us. Example: our ancestors were always on the go and so to compensate for all of those lost calories, they had to eat a lot. But through the industrial revolution, we really don’t need to move around as much anymore. But that instinct of eating a lot is still with us. Thus, we will eventually become overweight. Indeed, obesity is now the epidemic of the early 21 century. She has more interviews that deals with stuffed animals, junk beliefs, porn, masturbation, and television sitcoms. Her book is now on my wishlist. Fascinating stuff.
