I can't ask them, but I can observe their behavior. If weak child died because he cannot consume food, there was no behavior, directed against him. But if child was pushed out the nest by other child -- antipathy behavior was explicit.

We were speaking about explicit sympathy and antipathy. Implicit degrading of weak children is not the topic.

Where do you see competition between children, in which animals? Usually children are fighting to train, but not to kill each other. Competition is low even between adults of the same specie.

So, you think liking animal babies is a side effect of liking our own babies? But if this behavior would disadvantageous, it would eliminated by evolution. Remember about cuckoo, which hates foreign babies. Obviously, hormones you are speculating about, can be much more specific, causing love to own babies and hate to foreign.

Domestication requires caring when babies. Human species, which didn't like animal babies, didn't domesticate anybody and failed competition with human species which did like babies. We are descendant of latter.

My question is how verbal (educational) inheritance was excluded. Your answer is it wasn't at all? Comparing monozygotic and dizigotic twins does not help to exclude education. Monozygotic twins can show lower variation just because they respond to education similarly.

But how do we know that other atoms are turned over? May be ribosome or cytoskeleton proteins are also persist?
