  1. T_aquaticus: “Gradualism is the cornerstone of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution because without it, he could not justify the idea that one organism changes into another. “–Nonlin

    That assertion just makes me laugh. Nonlin has the cajones to actually assert that Darwin was unaware of the discrete units of biology, namely organisms and generations.

    Did I mention “organisms and generations” in the segment cited or elsewhere? Why would you make up stuff?

    Entropy: Nonlin needs to understand what gradualism means in evolutionary theory,

    Why don’t you explain?

    Allan Miller: You can have regression to the mean where the mean is not static.

    Did I say ‘static’?!? Are you done killing the straw man?

    Allan Miller: As to gradualism, if one defines it tightly enough, every point mutation falsifies it. You don’t get 0.123 of a substitution. Take that, Darwin! Or Mendel.

    Why don’t you define it (gradualism) to makes sense? And why would you invoke Darwin AND Mendel when Mendel’s experimental findings totally invalidate Darwin’s “gradualism”? Who are you trying to fool?

    dazz: no divergence is observed when populations are isolated

    Hey, when you’re retard, you don’t understand that “divergence of character” is supposed to operate in non-isolated populations.

    dazz: he probably can’t see the differences between different human ethnic groups

    Then different species? And which one is the inferior race in the eugenic viewpoint?

  2. Nonlin.org: Hey, when you’re retard, you don’t understand that “divergence of character” is supposed to operate in non-isolated populations.

    Hey, when you’re a retard you don’t understand that divergence of character also happens in non-isolated populations, with respect to their ancestral populations

    Nonlin.org: Then different species? And which one is the inferior race in the eugenic viewpoint?

    And when your a fuckwad, you forget we were talking about variation around a mean, and how divergence falsifies that hypothesis. It doesn’t matter that we’re all still the same species, the fact that divergence is observed among isolated populations shows that there’s no mean and no magic force keeping populations close to it. Simply because there’s little to no gene flow across these populations, so logically, mutations accumulate separately and populations diverge.

  3. DNA_Jock:
    We’ve been very laissez-faire, but there is a limit folks.

    Stop embarrassing yourself!!!
    Most people either don’t pay attention, or don’t care, what dazz writes..
    I’m ass positive about it ass about the evolution of okapi into zebra… or the other way around… 😉
