Re: the equality of pressure?
Hi Kleinman,

I know you sent RAZD copies of your papers, but it isn't fair to the other participants to carry on a discussion about information to which they are not privy, and in any case, here at EvC Forum one must present the information one is discussing in the thread, not just provide a link, and especially not one that's behind a paywall. When making a point that depends upon information in one of your papers, please present that information in this thread.

Mutations occur all the time on replication but in order to improve fitness to reproduce, it has to be the correct mutation occurring on the correct individual to accomplish that task.

You do still seem to be committing the sharpshooter fallacy when you mention a "correct mutation," and you haven't made any substantive response.

Just so no one's confused let me mention that you evidently clicked the "reply" button to Modulous's Message 373, but you were actually replying to RAZD's Message 374.

Dropping Thread into Summation Mode
To those who would like to continue the discussion let me express my regret that I feel compelled to place this thread into summation mode. I believe that Kleinman has gone as far as he is willing, or perhaps able, in supporting his claims, and that continuing along current avenues would be antithetical to the EvC goal of constructive and informative discussion. I encourage those interested in continuing discussion to propose threads over at Proposed New Topics.
