In their notorious (Thornhill & Palmer, 2000), Randy Thornhill and Craig Palmer argued that sexual jealousy and rape are adaptations. […] An optimality analysis would have to estimate the (very real) fitness costs of sexual violence and its supposed benefits. […] We would then need to derive a prediction about the optimal rate of violence […] and compare our predicted rate to a measured rate. A close fit would support the conjecture. Nothing like this is to be found in Thornhill and Palmer’s work.
Adaptationist claims of this ilk, perhaps rightly, make Gould’s blood boil.
