It's highly amusing to watch how a bunch of amateurs are trying to pick apart evolutionary biology. Nullasalus can't seem to wrap his brain around the idea that a scientific law formulated more than 100 years ago might not be absolute:

I think one problem I'm having here comes down to this: We have 'Dollo's law', and then we have 'people who interpret Dollo's law'. When conflicts are found to the 'law' as plainly stated, they get treated either as contradictions (Dollo's law doesn't hold here, violation found) or as exceptions (Dollo's law was never meant to hold here, no violations found.)

Someone should inform him that real gases disobey the Boyle-Mariotte law.
