Announcing a New Blog: Evolutionary Psychology

AUTHOR: Allen MacNeill

SOURCE: Evolutionary Psychology

COMMENTARY: That's up to you...

As if I didn't already have enough to do, I have started a new blog. Entitled "Evolutionary Psychology", it is intended as a companion blog to The Evolution List. I have felt for quite a while that there are no really informative blogs on the subject of the evolution of human behavior, and so decided this morning to do one myself.

I have been learning about and doing research in evolutionary psychology for over thirty years (that is, since it used to be called "sociobiology"). Several years ago, I prepared a series of lectures on the subject, complete with images, links, and references, which I intended to use as the basis for a course on the subject. These "lectures" will therefore serve as the core of the new Evolutionary Psychology blog.

The first post on the new blog (The Capacity for Religious Experience is an Evolutionary Adaptation for Warfare) is a repost of one of the most popular posts here at The Evolution List. I have reposted it again, partly to commemorate the 63rd anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and partly to give the new blog a good kickoff. I hope you will take a look, and if you like it, please spread the news.

As always, comments, criticisms, and suggestions are warmly welcomed!
