Description

Reischel investigated Florida Atlantic University professor Tom Shackelford, who is using national science funds to study "sperm competition," which is a very controversial area of research. The basis of his research is the idea that the behavior of human sperm over the millennia has programmed humans to evolve rape and jealousy in order to survive. Even though FAU is split internally as to the legitimacy of his work, the university is promoting it as "evolutionary psychology."
