Re: No, the world is not becoming a more violent place so what are you getting out of

@Jon and Robert, if you're at all interested, the book is well worth reading. Pinker deals with facts, not correlations--and when he can't get them, he uses multiple correlations to get the best fix on the facts he can. And he has an extensive discussion of how WWII skews his data.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
