The attached paper provides some interesting evidence on the acceptance of evolutionary explanations in sociology. Give it a read. We said in our book that public pronouncements of Darwin evolution as “real” and “not just a theory” are often used as signals amongst liberals as to their intellectual superiority. After all, to question evolution is to question science.....or so they say. However, evolutionary theory makes some rather straightforward predictions about race and sex differences--predictions that conflict with standard liberal narratives about these topics. Thus, while many on the left proudly proclaim they believe in evolution, they are loath to accept the outcomes of evolutionary processes.
