  • Do orthologous gene phylogenies really support treethinking?

    Behe, Common Descent, & UD

  • Were an organism an evolutionary chimera, then its various chronometers [phylogenetic markers] would yield different, conflicting phylogenies.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • Indeed, in his seminal 1987 review Bacterial Evolution, Carl Woese (34) stressed the incompatibility of ribosomal RNA phylogenies with even those few higher taxa that microbiologists still believed in and noted that “not only did we know very little about eubacterial phylogeny before the advent of the rRNA approach, but what we thought we knew tended to be wrong.”

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • His understanding of phylogenies and nested hierarchies is completely muddled.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • IOW Zachriel you have failed to show that I have a misunderstanding of phylogenies.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • It is precisely the HGT that spoils the tree-like phylogenies, hence the controversy.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • I noticed that no ID supporter has bothered to correct your misunderstanding of phylogenies.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • Anyone who has taught basic evolutionary concepts to college undergrads and probably high school students as well has most likely dealt with students struggling to properly read and draw phylogenies.

    The Panda's Thumb: July 2010 Archives

  • Hunter apparently has no idea that, in phylogenetics, it is trivial to test hypotheses like “there is no tree structure in the sequence data” or “these two phylogenies from two different genes agree/disagree with each other”, to quantify the amount of agreement/disagreement, etc.
