The evolutionary psychological imagination suggests that there may be an intimate connection between your inability to find a date on a Saturday night, and World War III, the current so-called “War on Terror.” It suggests that Muslim suicide bombings may have nothing to do with Islam or the Koran (except for two lines in it, one condoning polygyny, another promising 72 virgins to all martyrs); they may have nothing to do with religion, politics, culture, race, ethnicity, language or region.Most suicide bombers are Muslim
As is everything else from an evolutionary psychological perspective, they may have a lot to do with sex, or, in this case, the absence of sex.
Maybe the Muslim suicide bombings are not “terrorist” acts, as the term is usually used. Maybe it has nothing to do with Israel or the American and British troops. Maybe it’s all about sex, as everything else in life is. Men do everything they do in order to get laid (Kanazawa, 2003). Maybe young Muslim men are no exceptions.
What distinguishes Islam from other major religions is that it tolerates polygyny. By allowing some men to monopolize all women and altogether excluding many men from reproductive opportunities, polygyny creates shortages of available women. If 50 percent of men have two wives each, then the other 50 percent don't get any wives at all.Koulusurmaaja rinnastuu itsemurhapommittajaan
So polygyny increases competitive pressure on men, especially young men of low status. It therefore increases the likelihood that young men resort to violent means to gain access to mates. By doing so, they have little to lose and much to gain compared with men who already have wives. Across all societies, polygyny makes men violent, increasing crimes such as murder and rape, even after controlling for such obvious factors as economic development, economic inequality, population density, the level of democracy, and political factors in the region.
And nearly all suicide bombers are single.
