Re: from the simple ridiculous to the absurd reductionism ...
There is one other point that seems to have been forgotten in all his calculations.
Evolution (biological) begins with something already living reproducing. Regardless of the number, type or specifics of any changes between the original entity and the reproduced entity, it is only the entities that do keep working and working long enough to reproduce successfully on their own that make up the lineage.
No where in any of his absurdities has he included those facts.
