Just to kick things off, I'd be curious to know what people's thoughts are on the role of biological evolution on human behavior.

There are so many quaint "just so" stories floating around, there's got to be someone willing to take this subject seriously.

For starters, two questions come to mind.

(1)  Evolutionary Psychology presumes that male behavior is based on the notion that there is a minimal investment in reproduction and therefore they will tend to mate with as many females as possible.  Of course, real world experience indicates otherwise, so why should this view be so prevalent?

(2)  Another topic that came up in a discussion was whether our food choices/preferences are biologically determined or whether there is a equal or greater cultural influence at work.
