#140 – PZ Myers & Evolutionary Psychology

The League of Nerds

 

Myles is back from his vacation and ready to start a ruckus! Before leaving for the pokemon rich shores of Asia, Myles penned and filmed a critic of Rebecca Watson’s talk on evolutionary psychology in which she used spurious citations to cast doubt on the field on evolutionary psychology. This peaked the interest of one PZ Myers, sensing a fertile debate he swayed into the discussion and posted on his blog in defence of Watson’s talk without really providing any structured rebuttal to Myles original video. Myles decided to make a show talking about his surprise to the interaction and how little PZ seems to care for a coherent argument regarding Evo psychology.
