Hello Sky. Gosh, you're a confrontational type aren't you!
quote:Then you know better than anyone here that Darwin added nothing to the bio sciences.
Utter piffle. Even if we were to accept that the ToE is false, Darwin still did some pioneering work on barnacles. I know that's not quite what you had in mind, but you should have been more careful in your choice of words.
quote:Any pesant who breed dogs was already fully aware of the inherent diversity of DNA and how the selection process works over 1000 years before Darwin wore his first diaper.
That's funny, because here in the real world, DNA wasn't discovered until the Nineteen-Fifties. Even Darwin was unaware of its existence.
Of course, that is again, not quite what you had in mind. You should try thinking before you type.
It is true that variation due to artificial selection was known before Darwin, but that is not the point. Darwin's contribution was to apply that knowledge to the natural world, hence natural selection.
quote:I have little exposure to how science works outside of R&D labs. That's true.
quote:I can only account for what I've seen happen in the trenches.
But you have just admitted that your experience in "the trenches" is not relevant to biology. This is as if I were to claim that my extensive expertise in gardening entitled me to pass judgement on brain surgery. You have no relevant expertise, so quit appealing to your own bogus authority.
