Rescued from a corrupted hard drive by: Henning Makholm

The author writes:

Actually, science claims that humans have been "behaviourally modern" for thousands of generations. I find that statistically unlikely. The odds for any "behaviourally modern" generation to get its collective act together and agree on the production of the next generation must be well less than even. So why are we even here? Arranged marriages, most likely. That, and rape.

(Cue brutal flamewars in the forum about whether one of these explanations is logically redundant or not. Go ahead, have at it. The recently appointed official moderators-who-aren't-me probably need something to practise on).
