My alma mater producing dimwit pseudo science and getting massive publicity into the bargain? Shurely shome mishtake?

I saw that research and thought it came from UCSB.
anyway, a little more sophisticated than you make out.
They checked first to see whether men liked children. Then they showed the photos of those men to women and asked them who they would pick as a long term partner. They picked the photos of those men who (claimed) to like children.

Tim, hello. The Mail story refers to stuff from St Andrews and from USC. It would take too long for me to detail my objections to EP and the steam that would emerge from my ears while doing so would mist up my glasses and my screen. So let's just say it is a theme I will be returning to. Thanks for your comment. I'm almost starting to believe that I exist!
