: Many of them have. For example, people who live in cities still fear the presence of snakes more than automobiles, despite the obvious greater risk coming from the latter. Most of our evolution occurred in very different times, and we are forced to apply outdated internal weaponry when we face the modern world. Still, your point is a fair one.
well yes..... but those are irrational only in relation to our current social climate, which is constantly changing... the point i was making was merely that there is no 'irrational' evolution as such, only that they can appear to be irrational when society starts to move faster than we can evolve.
