Yes, so. The fitness recovery of the nematodes would be impossible according to Sanford.<quoted text>
Not so, Bud
Yes. And are you aware that contrary to the Creationist shibboleth that antibiotic resistant bacteria always show a weakness or loss of function elsewhere, making them generally weaker than the "wild type" is false?Are you aware of the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance??
It is quite possible that once we are down to a mono-clonal population, or a tiny one, reversion to fitness may not be possible. But Sanford claims its a one way street towards entropy and decay no matter what the population size (only that smaller populations will decay faster). So you have refuted nothing.Similarly, the Estes et al papers had the same findings
Get mono-clonal and the reversion to ancestral fitness disappears...
What happened to the nematodes is simply not possible according to Sanford's hypothesis. But it happens.
When are you guys going to learn what falsification of a hypothesis means in science????? Well, I suppose if you understood that, you would not by Young Earth Creationists in the first place.
