GEORGE: Sorry for delay in responding on this, I've been busy on other things, and in any case don't have anything much to add. I thought you evolutionists would know more about the ideas of group selection that DSW espouses. He tends to get negative comments from Prof Dawkins, who believes in evolution on the micro scale. The Selfish Gene etc.
I have noticed that DSW has now got into an unseemly row on twitter with another evolution professor with the name Gad Saad. However this seems to be more about politics than evolution. Gad Saad has a book out with the title "The Parasitic Mind", which sounds intriguing. There are so many books I should be reading to keep up to date.

DAVID: George, happy you are with us, but I don't know enough about him to help.

I have to echo this, George. I really appreciate hearing from you, but yes, so many books....! If you could paraphrase Prof. Wilson's ideas, it would help, but I just don’t have time to research from scratch. My current working day is from 6am till midnight!
