“It is always necessary to jump up and down on the scaffold of knowledge to make sure it is solid. If you are skeptical about a scientific claim, then jump up and down on it as hard as you can until you expose a weakness or convince yourself that it is solid.”
David Sloan Wilson, The Neighborhood Project: Using Evolution to Improve My City, One Block at a Time

“Selfishness beats altruism within groups. Altruistic groups beat selfish groups. Everything else is commentary.”
David Sloan Wilson

“I only do what only I can do.”
