http://richarddawkins.net/articles/646363-ucla-biologists-reveal-potential-fatal-flaw-in-iconic-sexual-selection-studyI wonder if these people could find a " fatal flaw " in this fact of mammal infanticide. This sexual selective technique rather guarantees the male genetic make up being passed in mass and preferentially.

only when male lions learn to clone themselves. Presumably the lioness manages to rear a brood toyoug adulthoodsooner or later and they are going to be 50% her DNA no matter who the father was!
