i looked at the website. This sounds interesting. Does it have the beer theory in it. The theory that civilizations were spawned for the creation of beer? Or is this just how some areas were better able to produce advanced civilizations vs. other areas.

The beer theory is a pervasive and necessary element of all studies of humanity. I just took it to be an implied factor.

The ancient beer theory revolved around people coming together to make the beer. Modern beer theory is envolved in people coming together to drink the beer.
It would go something like this. Drinking is best done in groups-im assurred some great scholar discovered. Thus most of the heavy drinking is involved in groups-hence socialization and community. Aside from the highly revered "keg party" where one person ponies up for the beer, there is the problem of BYOB. where one must supply his own beer. This has led to a problem, since civilization is now revolved around the drinking and not the obtaining. Thus a noble problem which is solved by the wife. MEn get married so they can buy the beer and bring it to the man inorder that he may then be able to socialize. Lets not leave out the cost of beer which is why men work-only to pay for beer. Tolerance is best when anticipating drinking beer.
So in summation a guy goes to work deals with those people all day just to make money to give to the wife to buy his beer so he can then drink and tolerate to be in the presence of people. Unless someone buys your beer for you...but that doesnt happen every day, unless your a king or drug czar.
Its good to be king!
