Pseudo-Science watch: Born bigoted

From News-Medical.net

Contrary to what most people believe, the tendency to be prejudiced is a form of common sense, hard-wired into the human brain through evolution as an adaptive response to protect our prehistoric ancestors from danger.

So suggests a new study published by Arizona State University researchers in the May issue of the "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology," which contends that, because human survival was based on group living, "outsiders" were viewed as - and often were - very real threats

And this is the ultimate consequences of falling for the flawed theory of evolution. Bad “science” leads to bad “science”.

How long until someone accused of a hate crime claims they are being discriminated against because of a genetic trait.

Of course my question is, how much taxpayer money did they waste on this nonsense?
