    On the contrary. However, I do consider that you should get your facts straight.

    Evidently you did not see tabibito's comment to Civil Discourse either and instead leapt to the erroneous conclusion that tabibito had posed a question directly to me.

    And if Covid has taught us nothing else, it's that consensus = settled science.

    It wasn't me making those generalizations - it was a multitude of studies over decades, including a number of countries. Sheesh!

    My emphasis.

    tabibito made this comment:

    That post does not contain any questions.

    As seer asked me if I agreed with what tabibito had written I assumed that seer had some understanding of what he considered tabibito intended by the comment:

    Two (biological) parent families are more beneficial for children all else being equal.

    He has made one post to this thread when he replied to Civil Discourse:





    seer then asked me if I agreed with what tabibito had written.

It seems intuitive that one would have more invested in their biological child, more natural affection (see second link). Having said that I had a step father, the best father I could have had. My biological father was not a good man...

    A good friend of mine has the same thing, a stepfather who is her "dad" and this is also the case in our own family, whereby the oldest child's father is the stepfather. Nonetheless it is a two parent home.

    Yes there was consensus, how many studies do you need, there was one objection, which was without merit, but you CUT off that part of the quote. You are simply are not being honest.
    You cannot cite a Wiki article which refers to selected studies and then contend that on this issue "there was consensus".

    I have made my points and I am not prepared to acknowledge that you are right [which is what you actually want me to do]. To end this exchange politely, we must agree to disagree on these issues.

    And there is an end to it.

    I see you are not willing to admit your earlier error.

    That is a matter of expert opinion. And from the article that expert opinion is divided.

    What do you do with evolutionary studies concerning kin selection? Why doesn't that make sense to you?
