    I do not feel controlled by my genes and I think it would be hard to give a causal explanation for this claim.

    I don't see what an obsession with sex has to do with the genes.

    People lose interest in sex and gain an interest in sex for a variety of reasons none of which need a gene level explanation.

    I don't think genes have any of the properties found at a higher level of organisation in an organism and as found in "emergent" properties.

    I can provide a counter example against theories of kin selection and the idea we are disposed to help people closely related to us genetically.

    The counter example is World War one and World war two. Millions of people people laid down their lives for nationalist interests. People fought on behalf of other countries and peoples.

    The UK joined the first war on behalf of Belgium and because the British had an Empire soldiers from places as far a field as India and other countries with very different races/ethnicities fought for Britain. Both wars and the later Cold War had a suicidal quality.
