    very distracting - e.g., just what is "reverse evolution"?

    Evolution simply is the premise that life adapts to its environment - so if the environment is ensconced in dumbassery (e.g,. as exemplified by our country's current gun culture/obsession) - "regular" evolution predicts that this exact thing will happen.

    Bottom line - there is no such thing as "reverse evolution" (or, if there is, a lowering of IQ is not it . .. ).

    •  Right. It's just standard evolution. (4+ / 0-)
    •  You're right, it's not evolution at all it is (0+ / 0-)

      de-volution, as in what happens when you proliferate weapons to millions of people that have no idea of how to use them safely.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      •  No, it's evolution by natual selection (1+ / 0-)

        when offspring die before the age at which they can procreate.

        The man's behavior has selected against his own offspring passing on the genes.

        It's natural selection, and ordinary evolution is what will happen if the man does not pass on his genes.

        If he changes his behavior to be safer with his children then there is an adaptive aspect (ability to learn, a lot of species have that capability).
