Is there a model for that?

December 15, 2012 | James Kohl

As some of you know, I frequently ask others whose theories, opinions, and stories about evolution do not fit what is neuroscientifically known: Is there a model for that? Although I’ve been told that Natural Selection (for something) and Sexual Selection (for something) are models for adaptive evolution, it is the acceptance of theories, opinions, and stories about natural and sexual selection that are problem.  Clearly Natural selection is for nutrient chemicals (e.g., food odors), and sexual selection is for social odors (e.g, pheromones).  There is a model for that, and it’s succinctly presented here.

So, just for fun, take a look at a few of the following internet posts in which I’ve asked others: “Is there a model for that” and never received an intelligent reply.
