My favourite nominalism / evolution image November 4, 2015

    Love it. Heard about the new research on alleged differences between male/female brains? Turns out, not so much. It’s funny how evolution seemingly programmed us to assume such disparity (between “race”, gender, etc) actually exists based upon minute visual/morphological differences. So skin deep is our species…. (sigh)
