|All one has to do to counter that Genetic Entropy nonsense is to mention that study by Estes and Lynch where they seriously degraded populations of Tribolium with deleterious mutations, then sat back and noticed that many of the populatioins not only eventually regained their original fitnesses before the degradation, but improved (probably due to compensatory mutations). |
If Genetic Entropy is true, that should never happen.
Could you provide a citation?
A Google Scholar on +Estes +Lynch +Tribolium returned zilch.
I think it may be this one
RAPID FITNESS RECOVERY IN MUTATIONALLY DEGRADED LINES OF CAENORHABDITIS ELEGANS
Yeah, that's it. I was in a hurry, got the species mixed up. Thanks, OA.
It always makes the Sanfordistas froth at the mouth.
