Fair comment about that snippet on its own, but in the context of the
conversation the main is and was that there ARE many other factors which can
come into play, making it very hard to predict what will happen in reality
just based on what is most common at one point in time.

Best Regards

I am someone who does not feel compelled to seek complexity where it
doesn't exist. So it does, in fact, seem simple: the more people in
a population with a given characteristic, the more likely that
characteristic is to survive into the future.

What could be more simple, and true, than that?
