Kin Selection and Group Selection: Survival of the Fictitious

first_imgNature1 provided another case where W. D. Hamilton’s kin selection theory, which proposes that “selfish genes can lead to cooperation and altruism,” is wrong.  Kinship does not always lead to cooperation.  David C. Queller comments, “a once-heretical theory [group selection] and an unconventional social organism show that the cooperation-enhancing effect of kinship is sometimes negated.”1David C. Queller, “Social evolution: Kinship is relative,” Nature 430, 975 – 976 (26 August 2004); doi:10.1038/430975a.We appreciate the continuing efforts of the Darwin Party to undercut their own beliefs.  It saves us a lot of work.  Queller tries to claim that the case under consideration, a study of bacteria by Griffin et al., does not mean we should discard kin selection theory.  He claims it has support from studies of social insects.  But on what basis?  He claims that both kin selection theory and group selection theory are both good for each other, to “rein in” each other’s excesses: “Once, group selectionists saw cooperation everywhere but were brought down to earth by individual selectionists.  Now group selection is being used, not to show the ubiquity of cooperation but to rein in theories on an important form of cooperation envisaged by individual selectionists.”  Pardon me, David, but two wrongs don’t make a right.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

De Gea looking for transfer away from Mourinho

first_imgManchester United’s current goalkeeper David De Gea has been looking at opportunities from all around Europe lately. However, he could sign a team no one has ever thought he would.The Spaniard seems sceptical about winning much silverware under the rule of Jose Mourinho while still playing for the Red Devils. Since Real Madrid stopped showing interest in him, he has been searching everywhere and he might eventually end up in – surpise! – Paris.He has been with United since 2011 and is currently considered one the world’s best goalkeepers. De Gea was rumoured to be joining Real back in 2015 but to no success. Despite not coming to an eventual agreement, Madrid’s door was still open for him until recently, when Perez set his sight on Roma goalkeeper Alisson.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Paris Saint-Germain have been chasing the Spaniard for his signature. Despite not being really into it, De Gea might sign as his only desire right now is to leave Mourinho, according to Caught Offside.Jose Mourinho has been underachieving overall since he took over Manchester United in the last season – so far he has been able to win only the League Cup and Europe League, which is certainly not enough for the 27-years-old De Gea.last_img read more

Pioli happy with Fiorentina performance

first_imgStefano Pioli has praised his players and expressed his happiness after Fiorentina demolished Chievo 6-1.Fiorentina thrashed Chievo Verona 6-1 at the Stadio Franchi. Marco Benassi scored a brace and there was late Giovanni Simone nutmeg. Pioli was delighted with the performance of his team. Football Italia reports.“I am happy, but there was more to it than the result. Chievo still caused us a lot of problems and at least it means we are capable of suffering under pressure in difficult moments,” Pioli said.“We started the season earlier than usual actually, as we hoped to play the Europa League preliminary rounds, but then Milan won their appeal and were reinstated.Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“We had a lot of friendlies and trained well, but there’s always the doubt in your mind on how it’ll work in a competitive match. This was the big test and Chievo did cause us problems, but we remained a unit and that’s what I wanted to see.“The midfield is where we made the most changes, but we had eight of the old guard starting, so I was confident. Edimilson has been training with us for two weeks and there’s a lot of potential in the team.“What we’re trying to do is provide entertainment for the fans and some beautiful football, because those are the characteristics we have.”last_img read more

Croatia gives England oxygen after beating Spain

first_imgOverly complicated match for the Spanish National Team in Zagreb, where they lost 3-2 with a last-minute winner and gave England one last breath.The UEFA Europa League A’s Group 4 where we have England, Croatia, and Spain, went through a major plot twist this Thursday after the World Cup runners-up defeated the Spaniards dramatically.Luis Enrique’s squad now has two consecutive defeats after today, one that leaves them in an incredibly difficult situation for next Sunday and completely out of their hands.A win in Zagreb today against Croatia, would’ve given them the direct ticket to the League A’s final four but Dalic’s side had the support from their fans and never surrendered.Most of the action went down during the second half, all the goals were even scored during the final half hour of the game and it was a real nail-biter because the Spaniards refused to falter until the very last minute when the locals were able to get that result they wanted so badly.Almost at the same time, the England National Team had one eye on their friendly match against the United States, and another one on this match as they were rooting for Croatia’s victory in order to stay alive in the competition.🇭🇷🇪🇸What a match. What a win. Congratulations!#BeProud #NationsLeague #CROESP #Vatreni🔥 pic.twitter.com/5DNROKzSTK— HNS | CFF (@HNS_CFF) November 15, 2018After a two-year ban that their supporters had to endure due to their hooligan problem, Croatia was finally able to play a very different match as they were coming back to their people for the first time after reaching the World Cup final last summer.Having the support from everybody in the stadium meant the world to them, it motivated them and kept them as the dominant side throughout the whole 90 minutes of the match.Despite not having scored during the first half, Croatia created many interesting chances that De Gea saved for the most part with a Spanish defense that was against the ropes.Finally, after ten minutes into the second half, Perisic recovered a ball in a very dangerous zone for Spain and he saw Kramaric in a very advantageous position to hurt the Spaniards.The forward didn’t fail when he sent his strike, Croatia was ahead in the scoreline but the match was just getting started. We were in for quite an incredible game, with everybody on the edge of their seat and hoping for more goals.📺 RESUMEN | Echa un vistazo a las mejores jugadas del partido ante los croatas en Zagreb. 🇭🇷 #CRO 3-2 🇪🇸 #ESP👉🏻 https://t.co/Vnnstq9a5N#UnaNuevaIlusión pic.twitter.com/nfTuUCYKFRJadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.— Selección Española de Fútbol (@SeFutbol) November 15, 2018It took Spain only two minutes to react, they got the equalizer through Dani Ceballos after Isco assisted him with a cross from the left flank. Game on!After another two clear missed chances from Rakitic and Rebic, Luka Modric was able to find Jedvaj’s head before the 70th minute of the match and gave Croatia the lead one more time.Eight minutes later, Vrisaljko wasn’t able to prevent the ball hitting his arm inside the box and the referee decided to call a penalty.Sergio Ramos stood up on the spot again, but he didn’t do a Panenka this time and scored with a potent low shot that the goalkeeper wasn’t able to save.The Spaniards were able to maintain the draw, which left them in a better position than they were with a loss, but the match wasn’t over yet.The hero of the night was Jedvaj again, who was right on the spot as David de Gea deflected a strong shot from Brekalo and gave Croatia the chance to win the match with a final 3-2 result.This win leaves everything for the last match between the Croatian side and England next Sunday. Whoever wins takes all, and only a draw would give Spain the ticket to the final four. What a great competition this has turned out to be.✅ That feeling when you score your first two international goals to defeat @SeFutbol deep into added time. 🇭🇷🇪🇸⚽️⚽️ Well done, Tin Jedvaj! 👏#BeProud #Croatia #Family #Vatreni🔥 pic.twitter.com/4kahEjKahQ— HNS | CFF (@HNS_CFF) November 15, 2018What was your favorite moment of Croatia vs Spain match from this Thursday?
