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

A Phylogenetic Tree is NOT a Nested Hierarchy- Evos are Willfully Ignorant

Evos are such a clueless lot. They actually think that a phylogenetic tree depicts a nested hierarchy. They are completely ignorant of what a nested hierarchy entails.

Nested hierarchies have groups that consist of and contain other groups that reside on different levels. This is exemplified in Linnaean taxonomy, which has nothing to do with evolution, and the US Army structure.

However with a phylogenetic tree ancestral populations reside on the levels and they do not consist of nor contain their daughter populations. So THAT is a FAIL.

You cannot create an objective nested hierarchy if you had to include all of the alleged transitional forms that supposedly existed. Transitional forms, by their very nature, would ruin any and all attempts at forming a nested hierarchy.

The Consensus Phylogenetic Tree of All Life

Note that nodes A and B represent hypothetical common ancestors (populations)

In contrast with Linnaean Classification
The standard system of classification in which every organism is assigned a kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species. This system groups organisms into ever smaller and smaller groups (like a series of boxes within boxes, called a nested hierarchy).
