It is?

This does not follow. Rape as a reproductive strategy has only gone to a minimum as a result of 'civility' and 'sociability'.

Therefore, Pro-social people are only likely to pass on their genes in the context of a civil and social order that condemns rape: this is bound up in morality.

It would further follow that we are all moral to an extent to be conditioned.


... The civilised course is to be sceptical of religion, but to keep an open mind.

So then the religion of the Skepsis is...civility?

How open shall/should/ought our minds be?
