Well MessnjaH I expect you accept another theory related to biology - the germ theory of disease.
Do you think that that theory can ever explain things like time, light, inertia and gravity ?
If not what conclusions should we draw from this fact ?

Would you like to expand on your answer ? I suggest that you pay particular attention to my second question.

MessenjaH, if you could try to answer my questions with more thna just a "Huh?" and understand the point behind them it might make things a lot clearer to you.
As it is you are just repeating the same mistake over and over again, which does nobody any good.

It seems clear enough.
All I want you to do is to think about and answer the two qustions I wrote in my first message in this thread. So far your reply is "Huh?" without any explanation - despite my request that you expand on that response.

You still don't answer the questions. And you still repeat the same mistakes. So I'm going to keep on insisting on an answer in the hop ethat you will THINK about the matter.

The value of cooperation is not JUST kin selection - there really can be a genuine survival benefit for the individual. Indeed, the application of game theory (the so-called "Prisoner's Dilemma" being a well known example) indicates that in a small group (a small tribe or a village) it is better in the long term to deal fairly even if it sacrifices immediate gain.
