Andreas "Andy" Schuler Proves that He is Ignorant of Nested Hierarchies
This assface should just give up, seriously. Andreas Schueler sed that he knows more about nested hierarchies than I do. However he didn't know the difference between a non-nested hierarchy, a semi-nested hierarchy and a nested hierarchy until I pointed it out to him. Also he didn't have any clue about the concept of summativity. Summativity is a key to nested hierarchies. But those are all minor compared to the ignorant spewage he has been laying down recently.
I had reminded Andy that nested hierarchies are completely a man-made/ artificial construct. That is because nested hierarchies require definitions for each level as well as definition for each set on each level. Andy is too stupid to grasp any of that and insists nested hierarchies exist if some pattern exists- total asshole moron, that one. Nested hierarchies do form a pattern but a pattern does not make a nested hierarchy. The fool is too stupid to grasp that fact.
The strange part is Andy agreed with me that if all the alleged transitionals were still alive it would be impossible to make distinct sets. He gets around this by insisting nested hierarchies only need to include extant organisms! As if there is no need to classify all the alleged transitional fossils as they are found. More stupidity.
If that wasn't enough I told him that Linnean Classification, the observed nested hierarchy, doesn't have anything to do with descent with modification and he just drooled. I also reminded him that the US Army forms a nested hierarchy and he drooled some more.
The sad part is when I told him about the definitions he sed he was using what I posted. However I posted the definition of a nested hierarchy, not of the levels and sets. As I said Andy is one ignorant chump.
Nested hierarchies are purely a man-made construct. That is because without those definitions of the levels and sets there cannot be a nested hierarchy. Andreas Schueler is too much of a willfully ignorant punk to grasp that fact. Too bad I will never collect that $10,000 from him.
Regardless of what is eventually learned about the evolution of Clarkia/Heterogaura, the complex nature of evolutionary processes yields patterns that are more complex than can be represented by the simple hierarchical models of either monophyletic systematization or Linnaean classification. page 34, Eric B. Knox, "The use of hierarchies as organizational models in systematics", Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, 63: 1–49, 1993
The sad part is I gave Andy that reference.
