Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Nested Hierarchies and Evolution

For years I have been saying that evolution does not predict/ expect a nested hierarchy. And for as many years evotards have been saying that it does.

The difference is that I have provided the reasoning for my claims- reasoning that includes an evolutionary biologist's potential falsification of the claim that evolution predicts/ expects a nested hierarchy. That reasoning pertains to a mix of characteristics. With a nested hierarchy you cannot have that. Yet with the current theory of evolution we would expect to observe exactly that.

For example Kevin R. McCarthy (AKA OgreMKV) sez:
I'd just like to remind Joe, that of 24 distinguishing features between birds and dinosaurs, Archeopteryx has 17 that are dinosaur characters (and not bird) and only 4 that are bird characters (and not dinosaur). The remainder are intermediate between dinosaur and bird.

Ooops! That would be a violation of nested groups.

This is too funny as out of one side of their arses evotards claim evolution predicts/ expects and nested hierarchy yet out of the other side they provide examples that violate a nested hierarchy. And the real funny part is they don't even understand that is what they are doing!

So I will say it again- transitional forms, by their very definition, violate nested hierarchies.

    Only if you use a crackpot definition of nested hierarchies.

    However seeing that YOU are too much of a feaking coward to provide a valid definition of a nested hierarchy from a valid source, you little blurt is totally meaningless- but it does expose your ignorance.

    "A mix and match of characters like this would make it extremely difficult to objectively organize species into nested hierarchies." Ibid
