    I said a lot.

    You are free to rationally comment about any part of it.

    Sweeping dismissals without any thought connected to them are childish displays.

    Make a comment.

    Prove any work about digging up research about the Paleolithic is worth it.

    Evolution is not left to reason.

    There is nothing rational about sexual behavior.

    It is not a choice.

    Speculation based on fossil evidence is more than playing with your dick.

    In the Paleolithic it is likely the dominant male did all the mating. At least in the open.

    We don't see anything stable enough to allow even a tribe.

    Stone tools for millions of years.

    I would say that none of that is willed behavior.

    It is all instinctual behavior.

    Many men wake up one day and wonder why did they did any of it when they meet and begin courting a mistress. Further instinctual behavior.

    As far as distressed geese go.

    Your guess to explain their behavior is as good as mine. The geese can't tell us what is wrong.

    If we saw what stopped their behavior we might better understand what was distressing them.

    Been studying rats, mice, monkeys, apes, dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, goats, etc for up to thousands of years.

    Any thoughts?

    Which one will tell you how humans behaved prior to centuries of cultural evolution?

    It is speculation but merely saying it is speculation is not meaningful.
