Evolution versus adaptation

Although there is some anthropology in the book, it is not evolution in the sense that one goes from the Fruit Fly to Einstein (though perhaps this is another discussion).

Many of the changes that the environment caused in the various ABO groups was more the effect of geography and infectious disease succeptibility rather than true Natural Selection. In fact the alleles of the ABO gene system are about the same age, so it was not a series of gene mutations that produced the ebb and flow from O->A2->A1->B->AB but rather the effects of plagues, parasites and pandemics thinning the ranks. Mant of these changes occurred in the last 10-20,000 years, which most anybody can live with.
