    No, that wasn't my point. My point is that the concept of rights is not provable and at it's core is little more than faith.

    LOL.....now you completely rip the goal posts out of the ground and move them to a totally different field!

    FFS....how pointless. You once again show that debate with you is a waste of time.
    Well, like I've been telling you...that the goal post is movable on this particular point relative to subjective personal perpesctive....is the point. I'm sorry you don't get it.

    So tell me. What objective evidence exists that the gay uncle theory was ever anything more than theoretical at any point in human history?

    Go back and find the post in which I provided a link to a study that supported the "gay uncle" hypothesis (not theory)
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    "Overall, little support was found for the kin selection theory in a community sample."

    "Of particular interest was the lack of significant group differences in benevolent tendencies towards nephews or nieces. Heterosexual and homosexual also did not significantly differ in differential channelling of resources towards specific classes of siblings."

    Kin selection is only shown for eastern populations. You should read people's links mac before you post. The eastern studies came after the western studies. Families in the west live too far apart.

    So, modern cultural conventions now have an impact on evolution....retroactively?

    No. Eastern cultures are more representative of human tribal origins. Western culture has drifted from that as technology has made it easier for families to live further apart. As a result the subtle evolutionary trends are not seen as easily in western cultures as they are in eastern cultures.

    Then why isn't this effect seen in western tribal communities...such as Native American (north and south) tribes, Garifuna, and rural communities where large numbers of family still live in close proximity?
