By the way, I have unraveled your behavior, including your "sense" on this, so just to clear something up:
You sense that it's bunkum because you sense that it somehow lines up with Stephan Molyneux (the title character of this thread, after all) and that thus any sort of agreement with it would be supporting his agenda. And you also sense that it probably somehow has anti-immigration implications, because you're always on the alert for that.
Neither of these things you "sense," however, happen to be correct.
True that Mr. Molyneux had James Penman on his show for one episode, but to my knowledge he has never discussed the ideas of Biohistory since. Now before this past Saturday, when I listened to one episode, I had not had time to listen to Mr. Molyneux's show for several months, so some regular listener may correct me if I'm wrong. So while I am grateful to him for introducing me to these fascinating ideas, they do not seem to have held the same fascination to him, do not line up with his agenda, and do not feature on his program (in contrast to r vs. K reproductive theory, which does). Also there is no anti-immigration implication whatsoever. Biohistory has nothing to say about immigration being any kind of problem, much less implying that it needs to be controlled.
You express a seething hate for Stephan Molyneux, just as, actually, you express seething hate for most prominent libertarians (Lew Rockwell, Tom Woods, Justin Raimondo, Walter Block, etc., etc., etc.). Fine. You express a bitter, scowling hate for any position on immigration policy other than your own (totally unlimited, uncontrolled, mass peasant migration) and indeed this is the one and only policy issue you lately express any passion about or care about at all. Fine. But what this means is that your sense that you must not like Biohistory is a mis-sense. Biohistory has nothing to do with Molyneux nor with immigration limitation. So you don't have an obligation to hate it. What a relief! See, this is sometimes the risk you face when forming an opinion about a book based on your sense, despite not having read it and knowing nothing about it.
