Heh. Chimps do that, actually.

In what might be the latest response to a bunch of responses of all time, I appreciate what's been said in response to my half-baked pseudoscience. Lots of lovely discussion about lovely things.

Retracting the "theory". It's not as good as I thought it was, and I thank you all for pointing that out.

I won't bother with the other outlandish, self-contradictory, and outright false claims in your post. It suffices to say that Aspies most certainly do not represent the "next stage" in human evolution.
Yes exactly. I have read of the "aspies are the next stage of evolution" BS in other posts. It sounds like more of a comic book plot than actual science.
