A comic. Character 1 is: a simple cartoon person. Character 2 is: a simple cartoon person. Character 1: How is evolutionary psychology even a science? Character 2: It isn't, in my opinion. It doesn't make predictions that could be proven or falsified in experiments. Character 1: So it's a social science, like anthropology or history. Social sciences may not be as rigorous as, say, physics, but they do nevertheless have methodological rigour. Character 2: Yeah, I don't reckon evolutionary psychology as a science deserves anywhere near as much respect as anthropology or history. Character 1: So, what other field do you think evolutionary psychology is closest to, in its validity as a science? Character 2: Economics. Character 1: Oh, BURN. Character 2: Haha.
