I 100% agree with you. I wasn't saying that I believe poly is more evolved than mono, just that by the rationale I gave I can see how others could conclude that, I agree with them for their reasoning, and I get why they think that, but I cannot as I stated say whether or not poly is more or less evolved than mono, because as I mentioned for all we know going around and banging every chick around might be closer to how primitive man was than how we are now.
