The best explanation I can find why ants and bees are altruistic (07 mar 13)

"Males hatch from unfertilized eggs, getting their genes only from their mother. Male ants always pass on the same genes, thus when a queen mates her daughters get all the same genes from the father, plus half of the genes from their mother - meaning all female ants in a colony have three quarters of their genes in common with each other." 

The Mythology of Evolution - Chris Bateman

I'm attending discussions about evolution, religion, Dawkins and Wilson.
