Heh.  Looks like he's repeating the same tired old lies about Sanford's "Genetic Entropy" he's been pimping for years.  A leopard can't change its spots, Sal can't change his stink.

How many years has Sal been a research assistant?  Seems like an awfully long time.

What obvious things have I missed?

"Mendel's Accountant" was John Sanford's attempt to present his idea of "genetic entropy" as if it were based on empirical science, and even computable.

First, his assumptions about mutation rates, and their "negativity" are bogus.

Second, he ignored the fact that environments vary and so adaptive fitness does too.

Third, he ignored the relatively small cost of a failed egg, or a failed sperm.

Fourth, he ignored the fact of a "purifying" selection.

Fifth, as part of his "young earthism," he ignored all the known mass extinction events.

Sixth, continued research on fitness landscapes shows that just the opposite of his "entropy" can, and does happen. And, it is not always better to be best;

Don't forget the claim that larger genomes or populations with short generation times went defunct faster. I don't think there was a response to the continued good health of Amoeba dubia populations.

Sal "the human shit stain" Cordova has now popped up again on Peaceful Science.  This time he's brutally quote-mined Joe Felsenstein concerning some passages from Joe's tutorial booklet on population genetics.    Sal's asshattery never changes.   :)
