How Do We Explain The Evolution Of Religion? -- "[H]uman religiosity was primed by the meaning-making, imagination, empathy and rule-following of other primates (primates with whom we shared a common ancestor in the past, or those common ancestors themselves). Religious imagination flowered later, in the hominin lineage, as our brains were increasingly selected over time to think beyond the here-and-now."

Scientists unmask a piece in the puzzle of how the inheritance of traumas is mediated -- "[T]raumatic stress alters the amount of several microRNAs in the blood, brain and sperm – while some microRNAs were produced in excess, others were lower than in the corresponding tissues or cells of control animals. These alterations resulted in misregulation of cellular processes normally controlled by these microRNAs."

Old by today's standards. These are songs I never got around to until they were available for free. ([profile] sophiaserpentia directed me to Grooveshark, which has been a revelation.)

So, tonight I'm listening to "How Can I Sing Like a Girl?":

Tell me, how can I sing like a girl
And not be objectified
As if I were a girl?

Suddenly, it came to me that men, as a conglomerate (I'm not condemning the gender as a whole [that is, as a group comprised of individuals]), cannot think of women as intellectual equals precisely because that would mean that their sexual fantasies of females, their conceptualizations of females, were implausible, wrong, unbelievable. God knows that the male gaze, the male idea of sexuality must be correct, so objectification must be a good.

If male sexuality is questioned, then the whole of masculinity is questioned & that can't be countenanced.
