Unit of selection

In sci.bio.evolution there is a discussion of "Gene vs Individual vs Group"
selection.

I honestly don't understand the arguments for Individual and Group 
selection.  They seem like utter nonsense to me so I can't really respond 
to what people are saying without coming off as insulting.

Are there any molecular biologists who understand evolution who 
understand these arguments for individual or group selection?
