THREAD: Are hypotheses in evolutionary psychology unfalsifiable? amazon.com/Ape-that-Under… cc. @RobSica @PsychRabble

"First point: If you argue that evolutionary explanations are unfalsifiable, you can't also argue that they're false... the two claims contradict each other." [1/3]
"But is it actually the case that evolutionary explanations are unfalsifiable? This claim is itself falsifiable – and has been repeatedly, resoundingly falsified." amazon.com/Ape-that-Under… #TheApeThatUnderstoodTheUniverse HT @ProfDavidBuss [2/3]
"There's no magic-bullet study that can single-handedly establish that a given trait is an adaptation – or that it's not. The best we can ever do is to look at the preponderance of evidence and see which way it points." amazon.com/Ape-that-Under… [3/3]
