Event was advertised as a talk regarding the evolutionary history of humans and the unique traits and behaviors that distinguish us from other animals, and why our innate tendencies toward invention and violence have led us to a crucial tipping point. I was greatly disappointed since there was very little, if any, on the latter part, and only a superficial dusting on the former.
