Re: What is "darwinian" mimicry in fact?
Ah yes, armchair science. As exemplifed by Darwin's book The Voyage of the Armchair, and Wallace's work Travels in the Amazon and Malay Archipelago in an Armchair.

I bow before you.

Re: What is "darwinian" mimicry in fact?
Dr. Adequate represents darwian aggresive ignorance sufficiently. You are on a higher level.

A level so high, apparently, you've never been able to respond meaningfully to my posts.

You're beyond any attempt at meaningful conversation, Martin. The immediacy and ease with which you play the "No speaka da English" game makes it impossible to converse with you. And, of course, you're a creationist, so even if you could successfully read posts written in English, you'd simply ignore their contents.

I do not see how RMNS can account for mimicry

Why not? It seems obvious to me that they can. Mimicry, in fact, is perhaps the classical example of a class of traits that come about from random mutation and natural selection, because any little amount of mimicry is such a powerful advantage.

What's your specific objection?
