    man, did this get bizarre
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Chris made a factual statement.

    Humans may breed with one another, but they are not bred in the way dogs are.

    Human reproduction is largely spontaneous and unplanned, whereas dog breeding is often highly regimented and organized.

    The distinction that Chris was making should have been fairly obvious.

    Even under the rubric of social selection, selection for qualities or values a society/culture holds in esteem, the selection is hardly conscious and no one sat down and say we value this or that.

    Are you familiar with the white and dark moths? Prior to coal mining all the moths were white with the occasional dark moth. Then coal mining and coal soot turned the trees dark. In just a few years the white moths had largely disappeared leaving only dark moths.

    However, if a lighter skin led to better health outcomes than those with light skins would rapidly outbreed those with dark skins.

    Right, that allele should come to be prominent, and changes in the environment may wipe it out.

    I believe the theory advanced for the success of the dark peppered moth was that the light colored moths no longer blended with the environment and were picked off by predators, thus depleting their population. There was no fundamental change in the moths. The dark moths survived to breed and the light moths didn't. When the pollution was cleaned up, the light colored moth population apparently reappeared.

    Exactly. Light skins in northern climes was a better option than dark skins. Light skins prevailed. Survival of the fittest involves the best fit to the existing situation.
