The simpler explanation is that a polygynous society necessarily leaves many men without wives and families.

Lots more time on their hands, and nothing much to look forward to doing with it. This is likely going to be a serious problem in China shortly, many people think, because the girl babies are sent to orphanages or aborted before they are born.


Your thesis assumes that "aggressiveness"is (at least in part) hereditary. Animal breeding would certainly bear this out. Moreover, so does Scripture. Our Lord had a human mother, but a divine Father. While He had both human and divine natures, He was born without the curse of Adam's sin. Thus, the sin nature of man is a function of the male parent, not the female.
