As far as maths go, here is a quick example.

Cretins like to say that the chances of X occurring are 1 in 100 billion (or whatever), therefore, it could not have happened.

They forget what happens if there were 100 billion trials...

Sure - any statistics book.

You're welcome.

Oh - can you provide some references for the claim that evolutionary bioogists believe that all gene trees and species trees should be congruent, and for the existence of a discipline in science whose sole purpose is to reconcile incongruent trees?

Thanks.
