The History of Adultery
A million years ago we lived much like our nearest relatives, the
bonobos and chimpanzees. Unlike other animals that breed only on a few
days of the year, we human bred all year round. We were promiscuous.
Then around 10,000 BC, with the invention of
agriculture, we did a 180-degree flip. We invented marriage and
monogamy. This was in conflict with our biological nature, so we
invented adultery, but carefully kept it under wraps.
Monogamy had some useful purposes:
- Preventing the spread of STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases).
- Preventing the spread of parasites.
- Ensuring the children a man supports are genetically his.
The modern condom is very good at preventing all
Pretty well all parasites can be dealt with. They are more an
inconvenience than a threat. Today technology has provided multiple
excellent means of birth control. We have Maury Povich and the
DNA paternity test. So the necessity of monogamy is evaporating. People
are living far longer than ever before. Till death
do us part is a much longer term commitment than it used to be.
Humans are adjusting with more frequent divorce and serial marriages.
Another option is consensual, constrained adultery. This is a practical
solution often adopted by gay couples who don’t want to lose their
primary relationship just because of wanderlust.

Irreducible complexity is a very old argument against evolution. Darwin himself
tackled it by showing how the eye was not irreducibly complex. The flagellum and the
wing have also been shown to be possible via gradual stages of evolution. Further we
have the fossil record to see the stages. Irreducible
complexity is creationist gibberish to trip up the uneducated. It was never a
serious challenge even in 1859. There are no outstanding
cases of irreducible complexity, though one you might try to stump the experts with is
the dragonfly wing. Dragonflies did not need partial wings for keeping warm or brooding
When you look at animals, you see and over incompetence of the intelligent designer (natural selection) because
the process is constrained to make only tiny incremental changes. If it could do jumps,
it could make much better designs. Jehovah in theory could make jumps, but you never
see them. That indicates to me a god is not involved.

One future occupation will be a bookreader. You will read thousands of books and
watch thousands of documentaries on some topic. This is not a formal education. Your
main job is to stay current. People come to you and you tell them a custom summary of
what you have learned that would be most germane to their lives. The problem we face is
an explosion of information that overwhelms. Even research scientists may come to
