I read that paper when it came out.  It is poorly written and full of 
BS.  If you want me to go into detail, post the whole thing right 
here and I will tear it apart.

I am not saying that there can't be group selection, it just that 
nobody has *ever* come up with an example that cannot be completely 
explained by a combination of memetics and biological evolution.
